Q is for Quitting and Questioning
Worst. Words. Ever.
There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t question myself. Why am I doing this? Who cares that I did this? Is this what I’m going to be doing the rest of my life? Is this who I’m suppose to be?
And after each one of those questions, I slap it down with a positive thought…or at least try to.
It’s not easy living with self-doubt, yet we all do. And I think that’s important to know. Even the most strong people have a inkling of self doubt once in a while. I try to remember that and talk to those I trust will understand my worries.
People who will be there to push me through and tell me that it’s just the self-doubt talking, not reality.
Reality is this. I am who I am. I weigh this amount. I speak a certain way. I laugh at certain jokes and I cry at certain things. I love to read and tell stories and I love geeky, childish things.
I am who I am.
So when self doubt gets me questioning myself, tricking me into quitting what I love the most, I step back and find the one positive that will save me.
I remind myself how lucky I am. How blessed I am. And then, I move on.
It’s a mind game and I plan on winning.
