I’m participating in a blog challenge this month. I am doing it in art journal style. Each week there is a different theme.I’ve decided that 2 is a good number to go for. I am going to try to get 2 posts up a week for the October Memoir blog challenge. If you are interested in learning more about this challenge- hop on over here.
This week’s theme is relationships. After some thought I decided to start with the most important relationship anyone has. Their relationship with themselves. How often do we overlook this relationship? How many of us don’t have good self talk? How many put themselves down or berate themselves?
My relationship with myself was terrible for a very long time. I talked to myself in ways I wouldn’t talk to any other person. You can read old entries here for more about why. As an abuse survivor, I think it is common. For a very long time I thought it was my fault what happened. That is why I hated myself.
I’ve done a lot of work to get here and it sure hasn’t been easy.
