In search of me – Day 30!!

Forgive Yourself by Julia Breckenreid

Forgive Yourself by Julia Breckenreid

Last question:

Do you forgive yourself?

30 difficult questions.  30 long days.  For those of you who participated in this with me, don’t stop asking yourself questions.  Don’t stop learning about yourselves.

I have really enjoyed this.  A full month of contemplating who I am, how I feel, and what’s important to me.  Did you enjoy it too?  Or did you think it was useless?  Please let me know your thoughts here.  Anyone is welcome, even if you didn’t share any answers along the way.

I wish I could answer a resounding ‘YES’ here; but I can’t. Some day’s I do. Most days I don’t. I put a great deal of pressure on myself and in this regard I don’t cut myself much slack either. My perfectionism has a stranglehold on me and as much as I try to shake it, it doesn’t go away.

But I’m trying. Maybe I should try a mantra or some self affirmations in the mirror each morning. I’m sure I could find a Stuart Smalley (bonus points if you get the reference) one that would do. :D

“Because I’m good enough, I’m smart enough, and doggone it, people like me!”

And I guess you can say that with a little more authenticity than most since you don’t always know when and if he’ll be back. Support to all the troops working on everyone’s behalf!

Hi Carolyn!

Thank you for finding me!! Are we opposites? Or united in the fact that our lives have been controlled by other peoples circumstances that are beyond our control?

I’d love to hear more from you on the forum – it’s always great to hear a step-child’s point of view. I’m going to set up a post on the forum now for step-children to comment. How was your relationship with your step-mother?

Oooh blimey, I’m going to have you on the pyschiatrists couch in a minute!!! Feel free to tell me to bugger off! I’m very nosey sometimes! ;-)

B xx
