“It’s not who you are that holds you back, it’s who you think you’re not.”
How many times in your life do some of you ever feel like you’re never good enough? Always worrying you can never accomplish your dreams. If you are one of those people who grew up in a toxic environment then this is something you have had to battle with your whole life. Unfortunately by the time you realize this ,you probably think it is too late to just go for your dreams. Year after year you just accepted how things were until finally one day you woke up and everything was clear. This is kind of what happened with me and my family. So many of us are the scapegoats. I think this is probably what is happening right now in the world. Two sides, battling it out…the scapegoats and the golden ones. So much ugly abuse and contempt. Like crabs in a bucket my husband always says. One crab tries to escape and see what the world is all about and all the other crabs try to pull it back in. This is that sad programming that scapegoats were raised to believe.
Scapegoats will always question everything in their life. They may think they’re never smart enough, creative enough, or even pretty enough for anything. This is what they were made to believe… but they are all lies. It’s never too late in life to turn things around. Show the world how beautiful you are inside and out. Show the world your gifts and talents. Show the world how kind and caring you are. Show the world your strengths and even humble yourself by showing your weaknesses as well…all of those beautiful things about YOU. They make you who you are. That inner beauty that never had a chance to bloom, well now it can. There is nothing stopping you from going for your dreams and living in happiness. If you live everyday with those attitudes then everyday will be a gift. Time to get to work as my Nana used to say. Show everyone your beautiful spirit starting today.
“ You can take no credit for beauty at 16. But if you are beautiful at sixty, it will be your soul’s own doing.”
