The same old stuff happens over and over. Just when I think I have put something behind me, it pops up again. Or just when I think I feel better about myself and won't let others have the power to make me feel bad about myself, there I go again.
Someone the other day just made a comment that triggered old feelings and out they came. I felt like I wasn't worth their time or attention and I let it depress me. The good thing is, I recognized it quicker than usual and was able to talk myself out of the feeling of depression.
That is all good, I guess. But I need to stop being surprised when those old feelings of low self-worth pop up again. I guess I will fight those feelings all my life. At least I can give myself a pep talk when it happens.
