... is me. But there is an upside to that comment as well. You see, my biggest cheerleader is also me! I just have to get those aspects of me in balance to live a healthy mental life.
There are times when I get down. I don’t mean sad, I mean really depressed. And it’s then that I think ‘What’s the point?’
What I now know for sure is that we often get the courage to carry on at the very point when we are ready to give up. This has happened to me repeatedly.
My inner critic will berate me and beat me up and I really want to give up. I intend to. Then, right at that last moment, I awaken the dormant courage that I realise I have and I am practically invincible again. I believe in myself and I know that I must carry on because I owe it to myself.
It’s that simple ... and that hard.
I look at myself and know that I must make the effort ... for me. I do. I will. Thus doing I silence my biggest critic.
Rah, rah, rah!
