Recently, I have been feeling sad. I have been feeling very anxious and stressed and I have been overworking myself to compensate for my apparent failures. I have forgotten everything I’ve achieved and simply focused on everything that I’ve ‘failed’ at. But you know what? I’m not all that bad. I will value myself and my achievements. I will love myself and learn to empathize with my emotions at difficult times. I’m stuck with me for however long I’m sticking this shit out for, so I better learn to like myself. Therefore my friends, today I am compiling a list of my achievements, because we all need a little TLC.
- This blog! Every single thing that I post on this blog I’ve thought about and worked hard on. I’ve got a lot to learn and I’m far from perfect, but I’ve posted some interesting and intelligent posts to a community which appreciate me and my writing. I’m proud that I’ve used the Internet in an appropriate manner and used the platform to cheer people up and help people get through difficult times.
- I’m a nice person and that’s difficult in the ‘society’ we live in. Once again, I’m not perfect, but I’ve never been intentionally horrible to anyone. I always try to help people and make them feel better about themselves.
- I’m a good writer and a good learner.I’m constantly improving my skills and produced writing, that at the time, I was proud of. There are endless ways on which I can improve, but I have talent. Hey, not many people have finished a novel.
- I’ve overcome a horrible mental illness and come out the other end a better and happier person and now I try to help others that went through what I did. I was incredibly brave during that time in my life and I’m proud of what I achieved.
And there’s my list! I encourage you guys to do the same, because it’s so important that you recognize how awesome you really are. Don’t allow your so called ‘failures’ to take anything away from your achievements. And when you do ‘fail’ your not really ‘failing’ at all. You tried your best and by another person’s personal standards you haven’t succeeded. But you’re learning and growing as a person everyday, you can make positive changes in your life and turn your so called ‘failures’ into achievements. Celebrate yourself, throw a party for YOU, I’ll come along… as long as there’s cake.
Thank you so much for reading,
