Something someone told me about myself that I’ll never forget (good or bad)
I don’t want to dwell on the negative. I’m sure I was told many positive things and I wish I could think of something good. I have wracked my brain for a specific memory! However the only thing that comes to mind that I was told again and again and that really stuck with me for most of my life, at least that I can remember (I don’t claim to have a great memory), was that:
I am stupid.
I was told this so many times, in so many ways, that I truly believed it. Not consciously, but it very much affected my low self esteem, lack of confidence, and contributed to my depression and feelings of worthlessness.
Luckily, I no longer believe it! My view of myself has done almost a 180 over the last few years! Just because he said so, doesn’t mean it’s true.
Yep, I know that I am awesome! Do you?
