I have been told that I am negative, don’t give myself enough credit, need to try harder, don’t cry, it is what it is.

Well, quiet acceptance has not been my way; with each loss, there have been losses! It is not purely that what does not kill you makes you stronger. Sometimes, the fact that it did not kill you is the best thing you can say about the experience. Also, the people who told me that I am negative, don’t give myself enough credit, need to try harder, don’t cry, and it is what it is, were not trying to comfort me. They did not say these things so that I would feel better. They said them at the time to prove their point of what they think I am and what they think I am not capable of. They said these things to make themselves feel better and stronger and more important. That is not comfort, nor confidence. That is arrogance.

So here is a reminder for you, and I, when the times are tough, the mood dreary, and the critics rough.

coonfronting our feelings

Today is Thanksgiving in the States. It is a day for sleeping, shopping, eating…What could be bad?

When I began my blog journey, I did not know what to expect. Sometimes, we don’t speak with the people we share walls with, and those across the world, help us to tear them down. To each of you who has read, liked, followed or commented, I give my thanks to you. It means more than you know!!

happy thanksgiving
