"It took me a long time not to judge myself through someone else's eyes." ~Sally Field
Life has a funny way of messing with you, everytime I think I am starting to have my shit together, something comes up to remind me that it isn't so yet. And back I go into this deep dark well of despair and anger and shame and guilt and whatever bad stuff I can come up with, but I am at least aware that I don't take as much time anymore to climb back out of the well, and I guess that's were the real progress lies. That doesn't make it any easier to be in that dark moment at the time but at least I know life will go on somehow and will be better the next day even though it might look like a total loss at the moment.I have on my mind all the time that tomorrow will be a new day and a day for new beginnings and happenings, no matter what goes on at the moment right now. I used to feel so defeated and frustrated with myself that any such moments and turn all my negative energy against myself, but I know I don't deserve that especially not from myself, because when it comes down to it, I am all I have, and who am I gonna count on if I can't count on myself. there are plenty people around to point out your bad stuff to you, so I don't need to do that to myself. Doesn't mean I master this effectively all the time, but at least I am aware of it and can work with it.
