Maybe you ARE enough. Maybe you ARE worthy of love and belonging.

Brene Brown is a researcher, author, and speaker. Based on the data from hundreds of interviews she saw that the only difference between people who have love and belonging in their life and those that struggle for it is that the ones who have it believe that they are worthy of it!!

So maybe all we need to do is accept ourselves just the way we are. No one else is perfect so why do I need to be?

There is a great series on YouTube called "what would you do". Actors create situations of people in need of assistance or support and they test whether bystanders will jump in to help the person in need. For the most part people jump in to help others. Most people are decent and accepting. Most people are not critical like my parents.

What do you think?

Because of my upbringing I am behind in a lot of things.
Nu.
I have my whole life to catch up on these things.
I only have the power to take small small steps.
Small steps do add up over time.
It's normal to have set backs and to get frustrated and despondent that change is happening so slowly.

Yom Tov is a hard time that is understandable.
I don't have parents and family to lean on and be with.
It is depressing and that's normal.

But in the long run nothing is permanent. Small changes can add up to big changes and over time I can find more and more meaning in life.
Even suffering has meaning even though it's so painful.

Depression is very very tough. All I can do is let it be and try my best -which I'm already doing.

I can't always stop the negative thoughts or the depression.
Sometimes It's just there.

May my pain be a kaparah for myself and all of klal yisroel.
May we all find meaning in our life.
