I wish I would have seen this picture a year back when I felt weight of the whole world was sitting on my shoulders.
When I personally feel down it feels like standing inside of old well, looking up, barely seeing light at the top. Not even an idea occures to my mind that I could save myself if I'd just start to climb.
Victim mentality is a big deal for me, I've learned how to do it from the best - my closest family members. It has been a long road of discovering that I am different, we all are... from our parents, grandparents, friends.. we can be whoever we want to be.
So to get out of victim mentality that was the first thing that I discovered for myself. No matter who raised me up, I don't need to feel, think and do things as they do
(if their habits are good for me sure I can keep them, but feeling like a victim all the time didn't do me any good) - keep what serves you and let go of what doesn't!
Second, I am the one who pulls myself up, I am the one who stands back up and starts climbing. Even if I cry while doing that :) Next time I'm feeling down, I'll have this picture as a reminder...
- it only goes up from here
- how is gonna be it's up to me and also
- the best things in life come from the hardest things you had to go through.
