Well the compliment I can think of for myself now
is somehow finding hope even when it feels really hopeless
besides also having folks reach out and support me
since no one is ever doing stuff alone
it’s about interdependency

Unbelievable Belief

When I was growing up, I had a hard time believing in myself. I am not sure why. I think it had a lot to do with my parents telling me ‘no’ all the time. When I disagreed with anything, it was grounds for punishments and immediately I am led to believe I am wrong. As I grew older, I allowed other people telling me no to hinder my belief in myself. I guess I didn’t believe in myself because I was scared if I did, someone would tell me no.

This is not a problem for me anymore. I learned to not let other people’s opinion of me become my reality. I do believe in myself, and as I say, I have an unreasonable, unbelievable belief in myself. <3
