Forgive

I think I have so much to forgive myself for. I hang onto all my pain for some reason,  I really don’t know what good it does me; when it’s really hurting me instead. The pain of losing my father mostly but other things too. I have to forgive myself for taking so long with the grieving process..Forgiving myself looks like being patient in my healing and not being so hard on myself if I’m not who and where I want to be yet. Making attainable goals and growing in my own self love is a great way to start. Healing and forgiveness is a “forever” kind of thing but it really is hard some days and takes control of my life.

And

I need to also get past the fact that I was hurt  by many other things I’d like to keep private but one of them being bad other relationships. I have been neglected, abused and abandoned. I There are situations when others had it so so much worse than I did. But because my young childhood was so wonderful- it was a shock when it came toppling to the ground. I think moving around so much as a kid and being blindsided with family drama didn’t help either. I was an innocent kid who was completely oblivious.

Heal

The thing that would help me a lot is to start living in the present and I need to let it all go- the pain, shock and disbelief of getting into something that was never meant to be. This isn’t very long but doesn’t need to be, I know what I need to work on and I intend to- starting now.

30 Days of Truths: Something you love about yourself

Hello Everyone

Today I’m covering another subject that is actually very close to my heart and it has taken a lot for me to learn to have something called “Confidence”. I have not always spoken my mind or been a speak up type of person. But after several people walking all over me and not tolerating it anymore. Sean helped me discover that I deserve more than to be taken advantage of. I deserved to be loved for who I am inside and out. So my answer for this question is below, I saw this quote and had to share.

So I love the fact that I listen to myself and am starting to stand up for myself more and more. I have never been very confident or had much gusto towards people or family. However I have always kind of caved in and haven’t said anything and how I want things to be. From now on I have started standing up to well, my mother, sisters and friends and now my grandmother who is somewhat overbearing and old fashioned- very hard to deal with or talk sense into.

How I changed it for the better

I am now starting off MY life and making the choices my husband and I want to make. Part of doing this is building boundaries for those people who have a hard time respecting you.  And that feels so good to me and I am proud of myself and will continue to stand up for myself and our life. Therefore confidence is an important thing to have and gain through life so if you just ‘fake it until you make it’- you’ll get to the point where you believe it yourself and then it won’t be so bad.

 Do you think you are confident? How do you exude confidence in your daily life? Show me confidence!

One thing I dislike about myself is that I have no patience for anything, I really can’t wait for any kind of reward or step of life. At one point I wanted to move from place to place and then we wanted a baby and I used to want to dance ballet professionally and now I want to be a psychologist. I cannot wait for anything. I have never been a patient person since I was a little girl and threw fits about having to wait for anything. I should try to wait more often and reward myself when I can be patient. I try not to get my hopes up and then dash them when they do not work out. It hurts my insides and its tough on me emotionally. I wish to be more patient.

 What about you? What’s the one thing you dislike about yourself? Share and maybe we share the feeling…
