Be kind to yourself

I don’t know if I ever really liked myself.

If I did I don’t remember.

I’d tell myself I was stupid.  Ugly.  Bad.

You get the idea.

I’m not stupid.  There’s plenty of proof of that.

Beauty is subjective.  So is ugliness.  All of my significant others have told me I’m handsome.  So has my mom.  😉

We all do good things.  We all do bad things.  I’ve done plenty of bad things.  Some indefensible.  But I try to be a good man.  I think that counts for a lot.

We all have hard times.  They’re a part of life.

We all need help.  We need support.  From others, and from ourselves.

Life is tough.

Don’t make it tougher than it has to be.

What happened to listening?

It’s ridiculous.

People demonize others.

Who don’t believe the same things.

Who don’t like the same things.

What happened to listening?

What happened to understanding?

Does liking a different sports team mean someone is bad?

Do different beliefs about the origin of the universe mean someone is an idiot?

“Divide” is the first part of “Divide and Conquer.”  There’s a reason for that.

United we stand, divided we fall.

Trying to be authentic

One of the problems I have with social media is that most people only show the good part of their lives.

I’m all for positivity.

But surely not everything in your life is wonderful.

Surely you have bad days.

I want to know who my friends really are.  Good and bad.

I haven’t been one to share much of anything.

I’m making up for that now.  😉
