These are compliments I’ve received from real people in real life. I post them here because I have a problem with reverse boundaries. See my boundaries tend to keep the bad in and the good out. This is apparently ‘normal’ or rather ‘a common symptom’ for survivors of childhood trauma.
The plan is that this will become a place for me that I can come to when I feel down – this is where I’ll find perspective and inspiration in the midst of the storms of life.
Anyway, my hope is that by making a tangible effort to cherish and keep these compliments, by literally exhibiting them on a ‘wall’ I’ll eventually be able to take them in, believe them, own them and develop healthy self-esteem.
