For most of my life I have relentlessly told myself I am a “screw up”. I have engaged in much negative self-talk which has resulted in a deep rooted negative self-image. I believe some of this may be due to the Post-traumatic Stress of being ill all my life. I have discovered most of the struggles I have encountered in my life stem from this false idea that I am no good.
I have learned that having a negative outlook of myself affects how I respond to situations thus resulting in anguish. I feel angry and ashamed that I let this reflection of me affect my relationships with others. I wasted so much time in despair. Having knowledge of this I can now move forward with a happier image of me. I am doing this challenge to gain better insight of my real ideas and accomplishments and to solidify my new belief of myself. I need to love me in order to love life.
During the month of January I will post each day something about myself. Stayed tuned for the exciting journey of my life!
