Somewhere along the way, I chose to see the silver lining. I’m really proud of the fact that, in spite of my foibles and shortcomings, I find beauty everywhere I go.
I just got home from Spain, where the former friend whose birthday I went to celebrate verbally abused me for 2 weeks until she physically assaulted me. Still, I had an amazing journey and learned exactly what I needed to. I came home with the last piece of unworthiness finally falling off of me, more sure than ever before that I deserve the best. I can live up to the best. I’m capable of my best. The best is in my future and in my now. I’m glad I see the world that way. I did that. I’m proud of myself. I like me.
