In small doses, jealousy sparks intrigue, fuels ambition & ignites passion. However, too much jealousy can ultimately lead to a toxic mind & unhappy heart. As someone who's felt pretty worthless my entire life, I do whatever I can to make other people feel special. I'll hug pretty much anyone & call them pet names such as 'my love' and 'my darling'. This level of endearment is considered strange in today's climate but I know in my heart that if someone directs that same affectionate language back at me, it puts a smile on my face, thus I know it'll do the same for others & that's all that counts. Talking with my therapist, she always praises me for this but I refuse to acknowledge it as anything special. My argument? I simply believe that this is something we all should be doing every day! She told me to stop thinking about what people SHOULD be doing (because lord knows we can't seem to agree on that *cough* Brexit *cough), and start thinking more along the lines of what we COULD be doing to make the world a kinder place. For example, one of the closest friends I have in my life right now is someone I've only met in person briefly twice. Why have we become so close? Life's too short for small talk! Yes it's easy to bond with someone when you share similar heartache, and in our case we both battle with our mental health...but at the end of the day, mental illness tries to isolate you & we both know that genuine love and affection for those around you keeps the darkness at bay. If it's deemed socially unacceptable then I only apologise if I ever make someone feel uncomfortable. As a young woman I know understand the anxiety of unwanted attention. However, I also understand the positive power of affection on an unhappy heart- and it's miraculous. I'm not saying we should all start walking around the streets hugging every stranger we pass by. However, take a moment to each day to check in and question; "have I texted my best friend to tell them I love them?" "Have mentioned I'm proud of them or that I'm thankful for their ongoing support?" If not...why not? It doesn't take all that you have to make difference, it's what you do with what you have that counts💗🙌

It gets better...trust me! 😍🤗 The truth is that we've been conditioned throughout our lives to doubt ourselves. We must retrain ourselves to get rid of our fears and self-doubt in order to build self-esteem and self-confidence. Everything you have in your life is a result of your belief in yourself and the belief that it's possible. #narcissticabuse #narcissism #gonocontact #getaway #beliveinyourself❤️ #selfworth #loveyourself #savetheinnerchild #itgetsbetter
