I'm stuck in the past.....
Sunday, July 27, 2014
Does the negativity from others change the way you perceive yourself? Or are you strong enough to still be the person you are capable of being?
My maternal grandmother was a positive influence that made me WANT to "do my best in everything I did". She always told me "you can do anything you make up your mind to do". Although she has been gone 31-years, I hope to be half the person she was.
Then there were my parents ~ they spent a lifetime tearing apart my world. No matter what choices I made, how I succeeded or what I experience ~ it was never "good enough".
In fact, it took them 59-years to finally tell me that they were "proud of me" and it carried absolutely NO meaning!!
So, why am I SO stuck in the past??????
How do I get rid of that constant hum, in my mind, from the ghosts of negativity???
My past shouldn't control my future. I should be in control of my future......ME!!!
Perhaps the more I confront the negativity head on, the less it will be able to control me.
How appropriate....the radio is belting out...."What doesn't kill you makes you stronger..."
