Repeat after me

I am not a failure

I am not a screw up

I am not a punching bag

I am not afraid

I am not a disappointment

I am not crazy

I am not giving up

I am not a loser

I am not ugly

I am not inferior to anyone

I am not stupid

I am not dumb

I am not who you say I am

Did you get all of that? Great! Now, repeat after me!

Some of you may have had these hurtful words hurled at you, and because you didn’t act fast enough, you were hit hard. The negativity knocked you down, and you couldn’t seem to get up. Every time you tried to stand, you were pushed off of your feet. This continued for years, so much so, you gave up, because you didn’t see yourself winning. Maybe it’s because you didn’t try to, or you just accepted the fact that you were all of the above. Whichever one you chose, is your decision. However, I just want you to know it doesn’t have to be.

Until next time my NOTE takers!
