And you know what? it's not just my thoughts that go through my head. I hear the words of my past, the painful taunts, put downs and other stones too...are hurled at me over and over again.
I'll be honest...sometimes I give them way too much weight and credit. I believe them. I live them. I let those words dictate how I feel about myself. I let them control me at times too. I let them win.
My thoughts and I have a little dance that we do and I will admit I let my thoughts lead for a little while. And sometimes...I let them lead far longer than I should.
I have to fight my thoughts to win back my life...to win back myself. I have to fight for me. I have to believe that I'm worthy of it and that I'm strong enough to fight. I have to believe. I have to hope. I have to.
