Always remember, you are not the lies you were told by the adults in your life while you were growing up. People who do this are troubled. They have issues that are very difficult to understand. And though it's challenging not to take a personal attack personally, it is paramount to your healing that you find a way to do just that. To find a way to recognize that what you were told WERE lies, and that those lies came from someone who wasn't right in the head. Someone who was deeply disturbed.

Start telling yourself all the wonderful things about yourself. Don't allow yourself to be berated, either by others or by your own self-talk. Focus on the qualities you have. Nurture these qualities.

If you stay in the emotional turmoil of what you endured as a child, you will always have anger and hostility and fear in your life. These key to healing is to adopt practices that that have you seeing your Self as you really are: wonderful, unique, valued, understanding, caring, compassionate, plus a host of other positive character traits. When you can do that, the messages you got while growing up will fall away. I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.
