Something to Remember Next Time You Hate Yourself
Stealing from my 2009 self to send out this reminder:
I wish I could remember where I read this mantra.
The things that we hate most about ourselves are our secret superpowers.
That thought just keeps RunningRunningRunning through my head. I want to needlepoint a pillow, cross-stitch a frame, spray paint a wall with that saying. Because the things I hate about myself:
Incomprehensible surges of emotion regarding seemingly benign issues
Getting what I want when I want it because I know I deserve it
They've just got to be superpowers. I just need to harness them for good (and still for a little evil sometimes).
