30 Days of Truth 30

Day 30: In a letter to yourself, write everything you love about yourself.

Dear self,

I love your brain. I love that you’re an intelligent person, despite being mixed up or forgetful sometimes. Don’t let anyone ever tell you you’re stupid; you’re not. You’re smarter than anyone who says that, at least.

I love that you can write and that you do.

I love your hair. I like it long, but I know sometimes you just have to cut it, and that’s okay.

I love your scars. I don’t like how you got them, but they’re there, and they tell stories. They say that you’ve survived.

I love that you value patience and thinking things over, but it’s okay not to put up with someone who’s really hurting you. That’s not patience or humility.

I love that you tell stories, but try to remember that just because a story is good, doesn’t make it okay to pretend that it’s real or that it really happened. It really is okay if it’s just a story.

I love that, despite your mixed up brain, you’ve managed to choose (at least eventually) for yourself people who really do care about you and love you.

I love that you’re working on helping yourself, even though I know all you really want to do is hide under the covers and never come out.

I’m so happy that you’ve been able to hold down a job—it’s okay not to be the perfect salesperson, and it’s okay to move on when you’re ready. (Are you ready?)

I love that you’re learning more about yourself everyday and that you’re learning it’s okay to disappoint people. The world won’t end. It’s okay. I’m glad you’re learning to take care of yourself.

I love that you read. I love that you discern.

I love your sense of humor, even if it is a bit twisted and strange.

I’m trying to love you. I’m getting there, I think.

Yours,
me

30 Days of Truth 29

Day 29: Something you hope to change about yourself and why.

I would like to put up with less bullshit and not feel guilty for not being “nice” when someone is being an asshole to me. Everyone deserves a fair shake, but no one should be able to walk all over me, much less make me feel bad about it. I want to be able to say “no” when I don’t want to do something and not be guilted into it.

In short, I want to be okay with being called a bitch by people I don’t like anyway.

Day 27: What’s the best thing going for you right now?

I’ve got a good support system for myself, finally, I think. Or rather, I have the skeleton of a good support system. I’m not better yet, but I’m pretty sure I have access to the tools now to get better. That’s the best thing I’ve got going for me right now. It’s not a lot, but it’s more than anything I’ve had since… well, maybe ever.
