Learning to love myself

Wednesday, August 12, 2015

Yesterday I was driving to see my Dad ..I needed to stop to use the bathroom.....

The rest area was pretty full so I had only one place to park my car....there was a group of young teenagers standing there and my heart skipped a beat...my brain flashed to these kids are going to say some nasty comment to me as I get out of my car or walk by....I relived the other times in my past that people said cruel comment about my weight ....
......
I then reminded myself that was along time ago....I had made a huge change in my appearance ....
But wondered why am I still letting the words of others bother me so many years ago...

Then I decided I was just normal...words do hurt ...but I got out held my head high and smiled...the kids moved back off the side walk a bit to let me walk by and one very nice looking young man said hi, like your car....does it get good mileage....with that I replied ya it does for a V6 and off I went to the rest room....thinking see you worry too much about what people MIGHT say...
When I can back I said you kids have a good day and please drive safe.... they all laughed a bit and said YES MOM we will.....that gave me a big smile and made my day....

I am working on getting over my old fears and my insecurities ....maybe some day I will... emoticon

Life is a journey with lots of ups and downs... emoticon
