So lately I have been having these weird thoughts ideas feeling.

I am okay, I am proud of myself and I like myself and I accept myself.

I want to shout it. I want to share it, Its like this energy inside of me saying its okay, LIVE!

My depression, times of self pity, my triggers, my feelings of self doubt, shame, anger. I know where its coming from and I know what to do.

I think I am actually trusting myself, I think I am finding my voice, my grounding.

Am I proud of the things I have done, No. I am ashamed for those things in my life. The realization is, I can't change it. It is. Its part of me, and I embrace that, I know why that part of me did what I did, I know the negative and I know the positive side. WEird yes , the human mind is insane really.

I get it. Do I wish it had been different, yes.

I just at this moment and time have a sense of peace, in all the craziness that is going around me. I realized I guess, I am not going to old coping, as soon as I feel them I change them. I am aware of my self. And it makes me cry with loveand acceptance.

I don't remember ever feeling this way.

Thank you for listening.

Savour it, take pride and joy in your inner peace. Know that you got here with hard, hard work.

You deserve this, I'm really happy for you!

Joanh, this is good to hear. Have you forgiven yourself? If so, what does that mean to you? I'm struggling with that piece. I wonder if it even matters to get forgiveness from anyone except the BS.

Fighting what I call the demons is the to7ghest part. I keep reminding myself I am making changes for the better. I look at how my choices have changed me and others around me and I don't like it. I need to get back to a place of self acceptance. Keep fighting the good fight.

I am smiling. So happy you are tasting some fruits of your very conscious and considerable efforts. You be brain rewiring! And it's working!

Breathe it in. Remember this feeling. Proceed with valor and conviction.

Proud of you.
