Anne Peterson nailed it in her comment though. Coming from an abusive upbringing, it can sometimes be so tough to shut the negative committee up. That’s all we know. Retraining your brain is a life long job. I do think I’m pretty awesome, but every now and then “you’ll never amount to anything” whispers in my ear.

When you’ve craved love all your life because you never received it growing up, it’s hard to love yourself. That takes work too. I’m getting better at it every day though.

Great piece Kris Gage . 💕❤️
