plz hear what i am not saying.
i didn't write this but i really like this and try to remember it every time. this is from a book.
1. everybody doesn't have to love me
not everybody has to love me or even like me. i don't necessarily like everybody i know, so why should everybody else like me, i will still be okay and still feel like i am an okay person. i cannot make somebody like me, anymore than someone can get me to like them. i don't need approval all the time. if somebody does not approve of me then i will still be okay.
2. it is okay to make mistakes.
making mistakes is something we all do, and i am still a fine and worthwhile person when i make them. there is no reason for me to get upset when i make a mistake. i am trying and if i make a mistake i am going to continue trying. i can handle making a mistake. it is okay for others to make mistakes too. i will accept mistakes in myself and mistakes that others make.
3. i don't have to control things.
i will survive if things are different than what i want them to be. i can accept things the way they are, accept people the way they are and accept myself the way i am. there is no need to get upset if i cant change things to fit my idea of how they ought to be. there is no reason for why i should have to like everything. even if i don't like it i can live with it.
4.i am responsible for my day.
i am responsible for how i feel and what i do. nobody can make me feel anything. if i have a rotten day, i am the one who allowed it to be like that. if i have a great day, i am the one who deserves credit for being positive. i am the one who is in charge of my life.
