Time I told Myself

Posted: January 31, 2008 by lcbelcher in Lindsey

        I always try to tell myself that things I need to hear, but I can’t always do that and sometimes I don’t even know what I want to hear. It would be wonderful for somebody to tell me all the sweet things, to reassure me and my confidence, but there is no one and I understand that I can only really rely on myself. If I don’t believe that I’m lovely, smart, or whatever else, then I need to teach myself to believe these things, or to at least to make myself so that they are true. I don’t think that anyone can really tell us anything we wouldn’t really rather tell ourselves anyway.

    Sometimes things sound better coming from ourselves, sometimes they sound better coming from outside sources. Life’s crazy, what can I say?
    This composition does have a super-novel idea behind it, though: “…I need to teach myself to believe these things, or to at least to make myself so that they are true.” That is the key to happiness, I think. Don’t just dream what you want, put footwork and action and sweat behind your passions and you can BECOME them. I think. Maybe I’m missing the point, but that’s what I get from it. =3
