when life gets hard, remember who you are and not what others think you are.

Sunday, August 12, 2012

Recently someone tried to break me, he called me fat, petty, a child, unpredictable, a bitch and told me to go f*ck myself among other things. At the exact moment it hurt. It really did. To have someone you once cared about say all those things to you hurts to a magnitude I cannot explain. I've never had anyone treat me that way and it sucked. Mind you all of this was streamed only from me blocking him on facebook. I replied with nothing but kindness when all i wanted to do was bash him in return but really what would that solve?

It stung for only a few minutes before I realized those things are not true.

I am beautiful
I am smart
I am happy
I am motivated
I am mature
I am caring
I am loving
I am me.

This has only made me stronger and 10x more motivated. Go ahead and try to break me, you will fail and only succeed in making me stronger.

So remember don't let others words hurt you, those who judge you are the ones most afraid of what they see in the mirror.

Today I made a recipe I found on sparkpeople I can't remember the name because I had written down the wrong one one but it was chicken breast with brown rice black beans and salsa cooked in the crock pot. It turned out sooo good and i served it with tortillas, sour cream and a little cheese. Also I went swimming this evening and when I got home I looked in the mirror and realized I was curvy and I loved it! I don't feel incredibly uncomfortable in my own skin anymore. I love it!

    thankyou :) It's hard to stay strong when people try to drag you down but you just have to stay positive and realize you don't need people like that in your life anyways.

    I can't believe someone would say something like that to you. But what is even crazier is that you kept your composure! You are definitely a strong, resilient woman and it doesn't appear anyone is going to hold you back. Keep it up and by the way you look amazing in your swim top.

    Some people who feel small talks down to others to make themselves feel bigger. I am glad you took the attitude you did. There is a scripture that say, "Render good for evil and it will heap coals on the head of your enemies." In other words, you did the right thing. You extinguished the big gloat that guy was probably feeling. Or another way to say it, " You let the air out of his balloon. I know you are feeling great about doing a good thing and not putting yourself on his level. You are all the positive things you said about yourself. I am glad you know that. Great going! emoticon emoticon
