Day 9 - February 2, 2016

Day 9.jpg

How many times have you looked in the mirror and thought something negative about yourself?  How many times have you believed what someone else said about you that was negative?  For me, countless times, and that stops now.  STOP BEING YOUR WORST ENEMY! 

I spent the better part of my high school life and the years after (many years, okay, all of them until recently) believing that I was a misfit and that people didn't like me.  Some may not have cared for me; we can't like everyone, but I was surrounded by people who loved me.  I had a lot of friends, but, more importantly, I had a close circle of friends that were my rocks.  Sadly, instead of remembering the positive aspects of that time in my life I focused on the negative, it was easier to be the victim.  It was easier to recall the snide comments made by those who were likely just jealous, and looking back now I can't believe I placed any stock in their opinions and believed the lies they told.  That was then; this is now.  I will no longer tell myself lies, nor will I believe the lies people tell me, and I encourage you to do the same.  Onward and upward, the only two directions worth traveling.
