People can be so cruel and no matter how many times I see it, I just don't get it. 99% of the time I let it roll off my back but then there is just this one comment or message that seems to hit a nerve. I laugh it off, delete it and keep going but I notice that I'm thinking about it later. Maybe it's because their cruel, hurtful comment is somehow my biggest fear ... "I'm not good enough". Isn't that what we all really fear deep-down inside? .
It is totally normal to feel all these feelings and honestly I believe it's GOOD to feel feelings instead of brushing them under the rug. I just can't make permanent decisions based off of a temporary feeling. In 90 seconds after this post I'll "feel" differently and talking about how you feel has been scientifically proven to help you process your feelings properly. The key to living a mentally healthy life, at least for me, is to KNOW who you are and what your purpose is. Then when "feelings" come in that make you want to quit you can remember what the truth is.
I'm doing the best I can. That's really all I can do. I feel defeated and a total failure sometimes and basically like "what the hell am I doing" but I just get up every day and remember that I have a purpose. I try to think about all the kind, loving people who tell me I've helped them or made a difference in their life. It motivates me to keep going, keep sharing and keep moving in my purpose.
Oh and to the jerks out there who sit behind a keyboard and tell you your a fake, fat or somehow not "good enough" in their eyes... get a life. ✌🏻 #psa .
