Being Me!

Monday, January 28, 2013

I have a poor self-image of myself. The above statement is something that I've struggled with my whole life. Growing up, I was often subjected to verbal abuse by my mother. I've carried that self-doubt my whole life and is something that I am working on addressing in my life. I'm working on feeling the joy of being me! There is a website that I have discovered called Daily Motivator. It can be found here And it just so happens that today's post is exactly what I need to work on. Finding the Joy in Being Me.

May today, you find your joy in being you! We are each unique. May you believe that today, if only for a little bit.

    That's a great link!! I bookmarked it.

    I experienced a lot of verbal abuse via my Mom too when I was growing up. She has passed away and before she passed away we didn't speak for years. However, despite the fact that we did not have contact, we still had a relationship, simply because she was my Mother and I understood myself in relation to her. So I worked towards forgiving her, as well as seeing her for who she was. There were a lot of good things about my Mother. She was perhaps, just not cut out to be a Mom. But she was very talented, very creative, and very intelligent. Part of the dynamic of a Mother Daughter relationship is loving/hating seeing one another in each other. Part of my struggle to care for and love myself has been my struggle to love and care for the part of me that is my Mother. So I continually work on that.

    After my Mom passed away my Brother dealt with the estate. Which, I give him tons of credit for. He gave me a lot of her things but I found that I could not look at them when I first got them. I did not wan to deal with it. I didn't care. I didn't want to care.

    Recently I have gone through the things and found some treasures. I found a huge amber pendant and earrings set and other fun things. I enjoy wearing
    them now.

    Thanks for your blog post and all the best on the continuing struggle to care for yourself. I think we all have that to whatever extent.

    emoticon that's a true and nice quote!! Thanks for sharing. I hope that you yourself can be happy with yourself each and everyday. It's hard to believe in ones self when doubt has been put in our minds as we grow, but I hope that that doubt weakens for you everyday. One day (soon) the doubt will be gone and YOU can shine. Good luck on your path. emoticon emoticon because we are worth it.
