- I eat and drink for myself to survive
- I feel my own pain, emotional and physical, better than others
- Even though I don’t have complete power over my mind, I am still the perceive-r of my life. I have the lens to view my life. No other person can do it for me.
- I have lived my entire imperfect life myself, no one did it for me.
- My pain has made me naive, OCD but it made me smarter and more effective with my decisions as well.
- I can express my feelings clearly, though almost never in speaking, but in writing
- I try to not place my self-love on how I want to help people because I know that whenever I won’t be able to help people, I would hate myself again. See #10
- I try not to pin my self-worth on materialistic things/success because what happens when I lose those things? Do I *lose* my worth with them? So, I try not to, even though I am not very successful at not being egoistical See #10
- I try not to pin my self-worth on my character/personality. Because I would lose character once I see it as some trophy to show to the world, which it definitely isn’t. But I still sometimes become all egoistic (mentally) when I see someone being bad and I feel I am superior to them, which is not true. People either lose their way in the dark or not, and other people, being criminals or whatnot, makes me no better unless I try to help them out of it (which sounds dangerous so, I won’t be better then them :P) See #10
- I take care of myself emotionally. Even though I am growing up, I try not to mentally. That can never be possible, I know, but I try to enjoy the simplistic things. I will enjoy simplistic things but at the same time I will try not to be quiet when I see unfairness (anyone read my never-ending rant on feminism? ;)). I also process my feelings by writing, which I am doing now, to make myself feel better because I wanted to balance out all the negativity in my posts with the simplicity in my life 🙂 I try not to hold my tears when I see something beautiful or sad (although I sometimes do it to appear mentally “strong” to my mother, but being highly sensitive is something to embrace, not cry over. Pun intended.)
Now….if only I can remember all the above points! XD
