stay positive.

good attitude.

YOU are NOT worthless
YOU are NOT ugly
YOU are NOT stupid
YOU do NOT deserve abuse
YOUR life is NOT meaningless
YOU will NOT pray for death

even better...

repeat after me:

I am worthy!
I am beautiful!
I am smart!
I deserve LOVE!
My life is meaningful!
I will pray for LIFE!

I wish I could say / think those words and believe them. Incredulous to say such things out loud when I know I don't see any basis for them being true.

And yes, I'm working on it, too.

Hi Gary. Good post and a good thought for the day. Thinking some of those things with the words inside the brackets is something I'm not sure I'll ever be able to do. Those beliefs I have about myself are just to deeply ingrained in me. Especially the first three and the fifth one. I can tell myself those things all I want with the words inside the brackets included but what's the point? I have mirrors in my house for Christ sake! All I have to do is look in one and I know those "nots" don't belong in those sentences! Sorry to be negative but I doubt three lifetimes of therapy could ever remove those brackets for me. Peace,


Ken

Don't be sorry, Ken. It took me a lot of years just to entertain the idea that the horrible things I think about myself may not be true. I have mirrors too, and it's painful to look at myself. It really is. However, as perverse as this may sound, it does help to know that I'm not the only one who struggles with this stuff.


You know what's weird, (and I don't mean to drag your thread off-topic I'm just curious if anyone else has this hang-up), you know what's even harder for me than mirrors? Pictures of me! I can look in mirrors because I have to. You know, to get my hair right in the morning and shit like that. When I see a pic of myself.... Ewwwwwww, GROSS!!! BURN IT!!! Seriously.
