” I refuse to become his version of myself.
I will not be defined nor be labeled by him.”
Note to self: My Daily Reminders:
If I do not live up to today’s expectations, that is OK, and I will try harder tomorrow.
If I cry today, I am not “depressed.” I am only showing compassion, empathy, and emotions.
If I scream today, I am letting go of my anger. I am not a psychopath.
Sometimes I smile to hide the pain, and I am not obligated to share my pain with everyone.
When my children make mistakes, I am not to blame. They are individuals with their unique thoughts. They, too, will learn from their mistakes. They are work in progress.
It is ok that he is blaming me for his lack of competence and life’s failures! He is just weak and can not handle the truth. I will just let it go.
I will not apologize for not wanting to become invisible and hide. I have a voice, and I will scream when the world decides to ignore me.
I have a brain, and I am not ashamed to use it.
Today I will remember that his stupidity will not hinder my empowerment.
Go ahead, label me, define me as you wish, call me names, insult me: Today, I will remember that I am who I am, and it is certainly not who He thinks that I should be.
I am not my children’s best friend, I am A parent, and it is ok if they do not believe I am “The BOMB.”
It is not my fault that I react to his abuse with emotions. That is the narcissist in him, he is sick.
It is fine to dream that one day I will make passionate love with my true lover. We were never a pair. We have no bonds.
Today I will be free to be “plain old me.”
