Something to Think About

“I’ve never tried to block out the memories of the past, even though some are painful. I don’t understand people who hide from their past. Everything you live through helps to make you the person you are now.” ~ Sophia Loren

 

Our experiences and how we react to them shape who we are and what we are becoming. We’ve all have had painful experiences that left scars. We’ve all had wonderful experiences filled with joy, love, and happiness that lifted us up.

One of my personal tenets is, if I love myself, I will love all my experiences because I am who I am because of what I experienced.  To me, it simply means I’ve taken the painful times and made something good come from them. I’ve taken the good experiences to strengthen me and build confidence to go on.

A few questions for self reflection:

How do I feel about yourself?

How have I transformed the negative experiences in my life and made something good from them?

How have my good experiences built me up and given me  the confidence to face the toughest challenges?
