If I'm alright with myself, then I'm alright with everyone else
If I'm not OK with me, then I can find fault with everyone
For as long as I can remember I've never wanted to be me. I wanted to be someone else, anyone but who I was. For years and years I was taught I wasn't good enough, smart enough, or worthy of love. It has been a very slow and painful journey to grasps the straws like self worth and self love that hold the keys to my self-acceptance.
You can see video HERE. The last message on the video was God Doesn't Make Mistakes. And I cried. Not only for myself but for my dogs as well. They could never be that dog who was so tender and understanding with this boy. Logically I know that they are not meant to be that dog, but in those moments I wish they could.
in this inner conflict where I gain my strength from the dogs that I have the right to be who I am, just as I was designed at the core of me.
