Over this weekend with all my crazy… I realized who cares if I’m an attention seeker, who cares if it’s all about me, who cares if I’m a know it all, or whatever else anyone says about me.
I am strong, I am recovering, and I am here, and I’m doing the work, and if that means it seems like I wanna be center of attention and only care about myself and it’s Katie’s world then cool, because that’s a far cry from who I was 8 months ago when I didn’t think I deserved anything, when I didn’t think I was worth anything.
My kids love me as I am, my husband loves me as I am, my family (even though they don’t always agree) loves me as I am, and the friends that know me love me as I am. So why am I worrying. If I’ve been this way my whole life, why am I trying to change to make others happy. If they don’t like me for who I am and can’t overlook flaws that mean nothing to who I am as a person. Then that’s on them.
I love who I’m becoming and if some of the rest of the world can’t see that then that’s theirs to deal with. I don’t need them in my life if they can’t support me regardless of my issues.
Hope that made sense.
