I know my last few posts about how other people are affecting me makes me look like I am blaming other people for how I feel. I know it’s me that’s struggling with these questions in my soul and that I can’t let people affect me this much.
How do I focus on me when I get in trouble for standing up for myself? How do I focus on me when I am supposed to put other people first?
I know once I can answer these questions, the end result will be that a stronger, truer me will be able to defend myself without caring about the consequence because protecting myself is what is best for me. I will be able to put others before me because in my heart that’s what I truly want, not just because I’m supposed to.
I want to own who I am without being sorry for it.
