Change what is wrong with me to what is right with me.

What is the matter with me?!  Why can’t I do anything right?!  Nothing I do is right!

Maybe it’s me.

What is wrong with me?

Am I being too sensitive?

what is wrong with me?

Does it ever seem like people talk to you and treat you with disregard and disrespect?

A colleague, a manager, someone who you thought was a friend, a spouse?

You think…what is it about me that people feel they can belittle me, act rudely and condescending toward me?

 There is absolutely nothing wrong with you.

  If someone is tearing you down.  Bullying you.  Giving you the silent treatment.  That is on them, not you.

I know I know.

It doesn’t heal the hurt or extinguish the anger.  It doesn’t even really answer the question.

It doesn’t stop them from being pricks or insensitive jerks.

But guess what!?  You have a choice.  You can choose not to allow them to steal your joy.  Stand up for yourself and don’t entertain their negative energy.

Trust me.

I know this shit is hard.

I throw pity parties all the time.  Holding my head in my hands and asking “Why me God?” happens about 10x a month.  Until I realized my worth, and believed in what it is that I deserve and desire.

There has got to be something wrong with me.

I was born into this world destined to be a failure by people’s views.  Poor, black, a product of a single parent household and abused.

But you know what?

There are mother fuckers out there born with no arms and no legs!!!  And they are motivational speakers!

Yes!  Armless, legless, (don’t ask me about their private parts) human beings waking up and doing it…living life, thankful for life.

  And motivating other humans who were born with arms and legs (and take them for granted) to live life to the fullest.

I’m sure they are met with people everyday giving them a side eye, pointing and staring.

Shit, if they can do it, you can too.  It’s hard, but you gotta push through.  It may not be overnight, but it will come.

Strong people don’t put people down, they lift people up.

It happens to everyone.  Words hurt.  But changing what you believe and think can also heal.

Change what is wrong with me to what is right with me.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with you.

When people ask “how are you doing?”  You know what?  They generally really don’t give a shit.  They don’t want to hear about what ails you.  How traffic sucks.  What such and such said to you and how pissed off you are.  They want to bitch and moan and melt your ear.

That’s how shit works.

Stop inviting the negative and learn to be better.

Work on your changing your mindset about you.

Work on the one and only you.

Your story, your strength can lift people up.  You can heal yourself by healing others with…yes, your words, which stem from your thoughts!

Just Do It!  Stop asking yourself what is wrong with me and start saying what is right with me.

Have faith.  Believe and trust in you.

  You are a strong bitch with all the shit you’ve dealt with and still are dealing with.

Give yourself credit..

Whether you made a mean vegetable lasagna last night.  Or you can paint your fingernails without looking like you just committed a murder and you taught yourself how to fold a dollar bill into a crane.

Stop beating yourself down by looking for the wrong in you and start looking for what is right.  Self improvement, knowledge of self is a journey in itself, but the time invested is worth it, because you are worth it.

Make it a habit when a negative thought enters your mind about yourself, think about something positive.

Ask yourself. . . What is right with you?
