Thank you all for being so supportive.  As some of you pointed out though, if nobody approved of me, it wouldn't make any difference, because in the end, I have myself, and I have to live with myself.  If nobody on earth approved of me, it shouldn't matter to me (as long as I am being a decent human being).  I don't know why I try to get approval so much.  I need to get more self esteem.  Thank you dear readers, for showing me this.  And thanks again for being so supportive.  :-) 


  1. I think we all feel a bit like that

  2. You can do it !!! Anything I can do to help please let me know..

  6. Thanks for visiting my journal and understanding the issue I was writing about. Read your journal and I wish you the best. Curious how you happened to stumble on me. I don't have many readers. But, glad you did.

  7. You have courage. And it is human nature to want approval. We all do at one time or another.

    We all want approval ... but you got it here with this entry.  It is YOU and if it matters to you then so be it.  I too need more self esteem ... maybe we can work on that!


  10. More people then anyone realises suffer from these things, along with anxioty too...and it's nothing to be ashamed have a really great journal...thanks!

  11. Thank you for stopping by my journal and leaving a comment and your link........and to share your story so honestly and openly in your journal (last entry).  You are so right when you write :-) "If nobody on earth approved of me, it shouldn't matter to me (as long as I am being a decent human being).".......this is very true, so very true.  I have to remind myself of this too, some days more often than siggy in my email is a Shakespearean quote you might like: "Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none."  So, don't worry about approval or popularity, just do the right thing is all that matters.  I will be back to your journal, stop by mine anytime :-)

  12. i actually found your journal by mistake but i am glad i did. i too have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia and know how painful it can be. i also take meds for anxiety/depression. life can be tough but we have to just hang in there and keep our heads held high. i wish you the best and you are in my prayers. i dont know how to tell you to get to my journal .its call micheal and hailee's can see if u can find it. good luck. stay strong. ronda

  13. Being open and honest is so very liberating.....the truth will set you free.  The love of Christ is pure and is DESPITE our flaws...but you know this.

    Thank you for visiting my brave for yourself.  :)  xxoo
