My own worst enemy.....
I know that we are our own worst enemy - we are our harshest critic. I don't need anyone's help in making me feel bad about myself, I do enough of that all on my own. Of course when it's a pile-on by others, that just exacerbates the feelings I have towards myself, and who needs that? It's a choice to let others bother you, regardless of the circumstances, and it's a lot easier to deal with the comments of others, than about your own thoughts in your head.
Just to be clear - I am not looking for confidence boosting from anyone today - I'm in a great mood and a great frame of mind, and I am certainly not fishing for compliments from anyone. I was having a bad day on Thursday when I saw that post on Facebook, and started this entry. I just chose to stop where I was at, because I was headed downhill on the self-doubt train and knew I needed to stop and get my perspective back. All is well in my world!
