I sat across from my therapist, as he asked me, “What makes you think you’re not going to end up alone at the end of this?”⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The strong woman in me rose up and answered, “Well, I am pretty great.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I had pushed her so far down, she had almost disappeared.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As I looked at this relationship “expert”, I drew a line in the sand. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I would no longer allow myself to believe the lie that I wasn’t worthy of being in a loving relationship. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And anyone who thought otherwise was not welcome in my life. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Those 5 words I spoke to that therapist have continued to serve me over the last 7 years.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
When doubt sneaks in and I start to question my abilities, worthiness, calling, etc, I just look at myself in the mirror and say, “Well, I am pretty great.”
