#trackpantsdiaries journals

March 2022 — I learned…
I grew up believing that “you need things, butI don’t need as much as you do”
—- false, I know (I know this now, but I didn’t know this back then)

September 2002
“I must help you because I can. It is my duty, my responsibility in life
Therefore: I disappear whenever I can. Here, in the darkness, I am safe”
— true: I did need to disappear to be safe
— false: It was not my responsibility to help everytime, to make life easier, better for you.

January 2015
“Feeling I have nothing to give other than me is terrifying.”
— true: I was terrified (not seeing the inner me was enough)
— false: Believing we have nothing to give if it’s not tangible
Realization and acceptance:
I always have (we all always have) something to give, but it’s not a physical thing

October 2023
“Self-judgement must be eliminated for peace and personal growth to be possible”
— false: self-judgement is natural and occurs every day. I choose to increase self-awareness instead and learn to discern what I am judging about myself so that I make adjustments where necessary and accept what is needed and unchanging.
