Choices Made Out of Neediness... (Connie J...)
Growing up in a Domestic Violence situation, I developed a keen sense of neediness - which caused me to make most of my choices out of that neediness. Not a healthy way to go, let me tell you.
One of the choices I made was to be with people at all costs, even to my self-esteem, and mental well-being (even physical well-being, at times).
I have also chosen to spend years with people that show no real growth, as people, over a number of years. This can be so draining, and I no longer associate with them. If I cannot be true to myself, I do not want to be in their company.
I was/am not proud of many of those choices I made, when I was younger; though they have helped form the "Me" I am, today.
Truthfully, I would have much rather NOT been that way. But, as I have grown away from my "leftovers", we'll call them, I have grown into a strong person.
You cannot let life keep you down, when it knocks you down, as it always will.
Have you made unhealthy choices, even recently, and feel you can never grow out of them? Do you really believe that, or are you willing to take the steps you need for YOU?
I would LOVE to hear some of your input, on this topic.
Have a good day, and be safe... #listen #ibelieveyou #doyouhear
