This is going to be rough for me to type.....

.....but here goes.
I am not a bad person. I did not deserve any of the bullshit I went through in this lifetime. Getting beaten, humiliated, raped - none of that was my fault.
I have a lot to contribute to the world around me. I volunteer, I am going back to school, I do what I can to improve my life and the lives of others around me.
I should embrace feelings of happiness instead of shying away from them.
There is no reason why I should not feel comfortable in my own skin.
All of the negative feelings I have for myself deep within my soul - I can overcome them.
Sorry if this post seems terribly self-indulgent. I never actually typed words like those before, much less said them aloud. Now all I have to do is actually start believing them. Heh.
