I remember when I was younger, I had a total preoccupation with what other people thought of me. At times it was paralyzing. The fear that someone might judge me would overwhelm me. As I matured and sought the help that I needed mentally, emotionally, and spiritually, over time it slowly went away. My thoughts about what other people think of me are nothing like they used to be. My insecure moments aren’t near as often. I can see my value and my strengths. The journey to this point has been worth every moment of self doubt. I am grateful for the me I am today.
