Changing the things I can
Female, Anonymous - Palm Springs, FL
I have started to learn how to love myself and how not to think so negatively about myself, my body, and my mind. I learned that God created me the way He wants, and now I can appreciate that. I have stopped complaining about things that are in my power to change. Whenever I find myself thinking negatively, I try to stop it and think more encouraging thoughts. When that doesn’t help, I write whatever I’m feeling down in my notebook and write something true and encouraging about myself. I try not to jump to conclusions and draw negative assumptions.
I’m finally understanding that I can find a way to change the things that are in my control to work on. I'm also allowing myself to grieve the loss of my mother instead of suppressing my emotions. I am now reading God's word more and learning to put my trust in God. I’ve been trying to include God more, and I find myself trying to better myself more for Him. What I liked most about my sessions with Stephanie was how she would go over things that I need to do that helped to guide me in the right direction.
