I (Andrea), tend to get struck down by disappointment. Some people are affected by anger. Some by disgust or hate. Me, it's disappointment. What I mean is, when all sorts of things hit the fan, I can stand pretty strong. But when I'm disappointed, by the actions or inactions of others, for example, I am knocked down. I am broken. I will curl up in a mental ball and feel sad, left out, and wonder why nobody likes me.
And that's okay to do - for about three minutes. Give yourself that bit of sulk time. And then get out a pen and paper and write down the positives in your life. For every bit of disappointment, there are at least three bits of positive energy that exist. At least. And this goes for every aspect of your life. Sometimes you have to remind yourself of that. Feel fortunate and happy for the things you do have, and for the wonderful things that you are, and for the great things that you get to do. It's those things that keep us going. #BePositive #YouAreWorthIt
Frankie and Andrea take turns sharing stories. Just good talk over a cup of coffee.
