So here’s a little secret of mine… There hasn’t been one day in my life since I turned 10 when I haven’t been insulted by my mother… And this ranges from the completely insignificant such as ‘You’re lazy’ to things such as ‘I wish you had never been born, you’re a complete waste of space and you’d be better of dead’… Yes, it’s hurtful. Especially when it comes from someone who you trust and believe should love you unconditionally…
Yet, I’ve learnt that the best way to not let these things scar you is to talk to someone you trust and ask for an honest opinion. Tell them what’s being said about you and tell them it’s making you feel insecure, then ask them for their honest opinion about you and then, most importantly - believe them! I am extremely guilty of not having done this, but this honestly won’t help you if you question what they say to you!
So have some confidence in yourself and believe them when they say you’re amazing. Then the next time someone tries to put you down, before you let it hurt you, remember what your friend said to you, remember that what they said was true, and dismiss the hurtful words being spoken.
Fighting back will only worsen the situation so as they say, it’s best to be quietly confident! Quite simply, believe in yourself :)
Stay strong my lovelies!! ♥ xx
