I listened to the tape recorder in my head that repeated what my abusers used to tell me. As a result, I allowed the voices of the people who surrounded me and truly loved me to be drowned out. My therapist had me do an exercise where I asked people to tell me my most positive qualities in order for me to realize that what I had been hearing and believing wasn’t true about me. It was their insecurity, jealousy, etc. projected onto me. This was an absolutely terrifying exercise. It was embarrassing and personal and awkward. I knew I had to do it in order to heal and that’s how I found myself doing number 26 on my list... Accepted Positive Personal Feedback.
