I’ve learned that I am loveable. I deserve to be treated with respect and dignity.
I’ve learned it’s the little wins that are important.
I’ve learned that it’s ok to be me. I am the way I am because of circumstance. Not because it’s my fault. I didn’t ask for life to go this way.
I’ve learned that crashing after many years of being strong was my way of attempting to finally heal. Even though it manifests itself in a way that I can’t always control.
I’ve learned to accept my thought patterns and thinking errors and continue daily to work on them so I can be myself and be ok with who I am. My genuine self.
I don’t have to be perfect. Look perfect. Perfectionism isn’t what defines me.
I’ve learned that I can’t stay in the darkness. I have to fight to see the light and live in it. Even when it’s overwhelming.
I’ve learned that the ugly way I feel on the inside, is wrong. I am worthy of all that is good. The outside also does not have to dictate the things I deserve. My looks have nothing to do with anything other than what I allow in my head.
My mental health issue doesn’t have to control me. My meds are a good thing. They really don’t label me. They’ve also helped me gain weight. I don’t need to be 100 pounds to accept my body. I don’t have to be afraid of food.
I’ve learned that self harm is only a temporary fix. It doesn’t change what’s on the inside.
I’ve learned that there are things in life that aren’t mine to own. I need to make people carry and be responsible for their own issues.
I’ve learned that being vulnerable is a strength not a weakness.
I’ve learned that there are toxic people and things in my life that need to be let go.
I’ve learned that self love and acceptance are a good thing not arrogance.
I’ve learned that I am also an important piece of the masterpiece we call life. I am valuable, worthy and I am enough.
I challenge you to write your list. Love yourself enough… You’re worth it. ♥️ More Love. Less Hate. H
