Realizing You’re Amazing!

Serenity

Realizing that you’re amazing – it’s not always easy, is it? While some of us constantly hear praises and words of positivity from others, some of us are used to hearing more negativity than we would like. Whether this negativity comes from the mouths of others or from our own thoughts, we need to realize just how amazing we are!

Today I went to the therapist and while we were discussing things, I realized just how much progress I’ve made. I still have a long way to go, but I’ve done a lot of great things. I’ve managed to get much more involved with my writing and I’ve taken more steps to get through my anxiety.

While I definitely hear praises and positive comments, I also hear people saying things about me that aren’t so kind. Unfortunately, I think a lot of people deal with this. We hear rude comments…

October Photo Challenge – October 2nd

Favorite Scary TV Show:

I don’t really watch scary TV shows, so I’m choosing another type of TV movie/mini series. It wasn’t so much scary as down right creepy at times! It was really good though! Quicksilver Highway!

Understanding Others As You Wish To Be Understood

Serenity

I’m guessing most of you have heard the phrase, “treat others as you wish to be treated”. If you haven’t, I think it’s important that you do. Anyway, just as it’s important to treat others with kindness and respect, it’s also essential that you treat them with understanding – especially if you’d like to be understood.

I don’t think I know a single individual who doesn’t want others to try to understand them; to support them. I know that it kills me when others don’t try to understand what I go through with my anxiety, when they draw conclusions without trying to get to know me.

Sadly, I’ve witnessed some hypocrisy going on. I’ve seen some people who I know for a fact have suffered with anxiety or some other health issue only to treat me as if I’m insane just because I don’t struggle in the exact same way
