Being yourself


A “good girl”…

doesn’t let you know when she’s mad or hurt…

seldom makes requests because she feels selfish for asking…

does everything she can to avoid feelings of being mean, insensitive, selfish…

doesn’t disagree or express negative feelings directly.
 
 
She learned this as a child…

as a way to fit in and be accepted.

She thinks making others happy

lessens her chances of being rejected.

 
But a good girl isn't happy herself…

 because she has to stifle...
 
 the essence of who she really is.


With determination…

she releases the old belief…

about being good

learning how to be more real...
 
and most of all,
 
loving and accepting herself.

Courage is never to let your actions

be influenced by your fears.
