Random Positive Thought of the Day
 
Similar to the other thread, but for positive thoughts that come to mind instead. I think it helps to type them out on a thread like this because thoughts that are kept inside my head tend to slip away after a short period of time (also I would love to read others ;))


I will start:


If I can behave the way I do around the people I'm comfortable with in my life, then I can translate this behavior to people I'm not as comfortable with.

This is a great idea!

Here's one I thought of:

People telling you you're 'too quiet' can be frustrating and hurtful, but what these people are actually trying to tell you is that they like you and value your input, or are interested in knowing you better. If they didn't, they wouldn't say anything at all.

I like this, that is a very good point

I want this thread to live, so I'll give another one:

Rather than compare your achievements with those of others: compare your achievements to what you've done already. Think of life not as a race but running a track and always trying to beat your time.

I don't even know if that makes sense but it does to me.

im really proud of myself for my commitment to my health and fitness. ive lost 7 lbs in just under a week, and i havent had to restrict my eating at all. when i excersize i am so happy when i am able to feel my own progress; moves and stretches that i once didnt even attempt because they seemed too difficult i can find myself able to do- bit by bit i know im getting stronger and leaner and this makes me feel good about myself. i wont listen to anyone tell me i dont need to do this- im already too thin, underweight, like they think the desire to be "in shape" is inherently unhealthy and destructive in my case. im tired of obnoxious 'liberalized/"radical"' people blathering about how everybody just needs to accept themselves and accept other people no matter what shape they're in or what they look like. i still have a ways to go but im starting to feel more confident, strong, and in control.

I'm glad you like the thread! And that makes complete sense. Comparing to others rarely helps because there's always those who have accomplished more. I like the way you phrased this.

Good for you, and congrats on the weight loss. I agree with you, exercise always makes me feel so much better.

I think people would like me if I showed myself to them, and I would like myself more if I were able to show myself to others.

**** it all, I'm done.

Weather was nice today.
My parts for my car came.
People that I thought didn't like me have been unexpectedly nice to me lately.

You look very pretty. :)

One positive thought: Success means to get up just one more time than your failures. ROME was not built in a day so every little bit help

I'm desperately trying to hang in there.

I think having SA has made me a more independent and self reliant person.

So is that a false belief based on SA?

Life is what you make it. Id like to think of that as positive..

WhatWentWrong 06-23-2013 02:14 PM

Life isn't that special, we come and go and the universe doesn't give a damn. Not massively positive I suppose.
