You don't need anyone's affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn't actually about you. It's about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don't have to internalize that.
Your worth isn't contingent upon other people's acceptance of you. it's something inherent. YOU EXIST, and therefore, YOU MATTER.
You're allowed to voice your thoughts and feelings. You're allowed to assert your needs and take up space. You're allowed to hold onto the truth that who you are is exactly enough. And you're allowed to remove anyone from your life who makes you feel otherwise. ~Daniell Koepke

As strange as it may sound, the fact that I was so sedentary contributed to the hip issue. I really couldn't understand it at first because I didn't do anything to make it hurt. I didn't fall or trip or anything. I just woke up one day and it was hurting. I kept thinking it would go away on it's own because that's what all the information on the internet said. Of course, in my case, it was wrong. It's been feeling a lot better, but still not where I would like to be. I am gearing up for school. Yes, it seems every year we have to bid on our jobs. This year I am a teacher's aid. I honestly was at my wits end being the secretary. I was so stressed it was horrible, so now I am a teacher's aide, which is a lot less stress. I am at a different building again. I am now at the intermediate 4, 5 and 6. I hope this year goes a lot better that last. Yes, my "lost" weight seems to find me too. It's frustrating. I hope your hip starts to feel better. It's painful sometimes. 164 days ago
I'M BAAACK. LOL. SORRY THAT I WAS MIA FOR SO LONG. I WENT THROUGH SOME REALLY CRAZY TIMES AT WORK AT THE END OF THE YEAR. ALMOST RIGHT AFTER WORK WE WENT TO LAS VEGAS AND VISITED THE GRAND CANYON. I WORKED FOR SUMMER SCHOOL THE WHOLE MONTH OF JULY AND NOW WE ARE INTO AUGUST. I HAVE ALMOST BEEN LIVING AT THE PHYSICAL THERAPIST. MY RIGHT HIP HAS BEEN HURTING ME SINCE APRIL AND IT IS STILL HURTING, SO I'VE BEEN GOING TO PT 2 TO 3 TIMES A WEEK. I GAINED A LOT OF WEIGHT. I AM AT MY HEAVIEST EVER. I'M BLAMING IT ON MY HIP, BUT FOOD HAD SOMETHING TO DO WITH IT TOO. WELL, IT'S LATE AND I NEED TO GET SOME SLEEP. SOORY FOR BEING MIA AND THE ALL CAPS. 165 days ago
