What do you think of yourself as a person? Seriously, come on be honest here, because unless you said I’m a happy and well adjusted individual who thinks of myself as a good person then you’re probably letting the past and other people dictate many of your feelings.
Truth is the following: it doesn’t matter who you were growing up as a child, or in school, if you were viewed as or thought yourself as unliked or unpopular – it doesn’t matter now. Unless you’ve decided to make it matter.
Because who you are deep inside – is the seed of you, of your potential and the possibilities of who you are meant to be. Everything else is an outside influence, you being the one to determine how to deal with them.
Anyone who decides their own self worth is tied into what others think is not seeing themselves clearly. A foggy view at best! Your self-worth is decided by you. All other things should factor in after you realize and accept this as your personal truth.
Our experience in life shapes and molds our character, another truth, however even if your life has been filled with negative circumstances and negative verbal input, it’s still you who decides what to do.
The only person you have to prove anything to is YOU, period!
And from where I’m standing you’re looking pretty terrific. You’re a great person with a huge, sensitive caring heart. The people who don’t realize this both past and present, (because they haven’t taken the time to get to know the real you), well that’s their loss … not yours.
So take another look at who you think you are. I believe the view is pretty amazing. The view of you, as it should be!
Hope your week started off well and keeps getting better. Remember … take care of you because if you aren’t well, you can’t be there for others, or effectively accomplish your own goals.
With sincere affection,

So much truth and beauty here Penny. So many of us are so busy trying to please everyone or finding it difficult to maintain relationships. We have to look within ourselves and first appreciate and learn to love ourselves. ❤
AnElephantCant claim to be pretty
He has a big funny shaped head with very few hairs on
But he tries to be nice
And maybe once or even twice
He is told he is not a really bad person
Once or twice … xo

Yea 🙂 I am finding my lost self. No wonder I have been living in confusion.
Thank you, Penny, for this. Now I understand myself better that my family members have been putting me in a box and I let them cross over my boundaries. I have been so miserable.
