Love Your Life 30 Day Project (Day 8)

What old story have I been telling that isn’t serving me? How does this story make me feel?

In the past, when people asked me about my mother, I would evade the topic or simply tell them that my mom doesn’t want to raise me. This story made me feel unworthy and even worthless! I was kind of victimizing myself.

What new story will you begin telling? How does this story make you feel?

The new story that I began telling over the last few months (wow, this happened not far ago) was that even though my mother did not take part in my life after birth, I am still thankful for the fact that she gave me a life and that from her behaviors, I have learnt what not to do to my future kids. I have an especially loving father, grandparents and aunt and uncle and cousin who extremely and especially loves me. This story makes me feel loved.
