See Yourself!

Sometimes, being a good person simply isn’t enough…
More often than not, other people see and do things that make themselves happy first and foremost. So they don’t always see you. Self-preservation, I’d guess. So you’ve become secondary, or even less… Remember that you can only do your best, that everything isn’t simply cut and dry. We all struggle with something difficult… whether it be your health, finances, loss, self-esteem, family, friends, etc., or even a combination of those things. But you have to make the choice to still be a good person and do the right things, no matter the difficulty. Continue to be kind to one another because those little things do matter. Do not allow those positive things to fall by the wayside because negativity is always waiting, right around the corner. Misery loves company.
Try not to let other’s thoughts, actions, or words define who you are. You are worth more than the label someone else puts upon you. You are a multitude of wonderful things all wrapped into one, so remind yourself of those things! You don’t need another person’s approval or praise to feel good about yourself. They are nice to hear, of course. But, if you place too much emphasis on them, you’ll lose whom you really are deep down. You’ll begin to see yourself only through their lenses. So, as soon as you hear something negative; it will instantly steal the wind from your sails, leaving you in the darkness to dwell on their words. It’s so easy to allow the negative thoughts to creep in, so try to stay vigilant. Keep moving forward. Remember who you really are! There are still good days ahead, awaiting for us to embrace them.
If you are one of those lucky enough, to have someone truly thoughtful in your life. Do everything in your power to treat them as well as they have you. That means putting them ahead of everything else. Why, you ask? Because they will always be there for you, if you do! If you don’t; you could very well lose them and end up alone…
Sadly, in our social media world today, being alone has become the norm. Sitting behind our computers/phones, trying to find a connection there instead of interacting with those around us. It’s easy to get wrapped up in our online world and just as easily to get discarded like trash. So place value where it richly belongs. In those that truly care for and love you, in the real world, right beside you.
This was written for someone who would like to remain anonymous. I hope this helps.
You are not alone… and neither am I!
Love you all 💜💋MJ
*To be clear, I’m not saying that our fibro communities are not helpful and supportive. Of course they are! I’m just reminding everyone to remember that there are those around us who need our attention and us theirs, much more.
