28 Days: Self-Acceptance

Have you thought about where the negative beliefs you have about yourself come from?

When I was young, I was constantly teased for being unusually tall for my age (there were times when my mother would actually let me lie about my age so I would have to deal with, “My goodness, you’re only six?! I thought you were at least eight!” sigh), being smart (rather, a know-it-all), and being too talkative.  As I got older, I was chided for being both too outspoken and too sensitive. I just couldn’t win on the social and emotional fronts.
