SWT 100 Notes: Note 19


This is a letter from one of those whos killed herself trying to be the best because shes always been in the shadows. The loser. The second best. The one whos been rejected. The girl who developed anxiety because she overcompensates and overdoes it.  The one who was so tedious in her actions that she gets nervous when shes not perfect. The one who got up extra early to be on time but all she gained from that was loss of sleep. The one who stood up all night studying and skipped breakfast. The one who raised her hand every class. The one who was the weakest link. The one who couldn’t go to graduate school. The one whos mental illnesses crippled her to mental paralysis. Dark. In a daze. She just wanted to be…the best. 

The best is an illusion. The best is fake. The best is a lie. No one is the best. Everyone has talents. Everyone is really good at some things, and not so good in others. You have something about you thats great. That doesn’t make you better, or the best, it makes you who you are. 

Get rid of the notion that you need to be the best. The best is a disease. Take your time. Go slow. Find yourself. You’ll then realize the best is already in you.

Bulletin Board November 2017: Strength and Power

 

 

You give yourself your strength and you give yourself your power. Your power and strength is based on your ability to know yourself in every level, aspect, and perspective. As you grow yourself, you grow your strength and the more powerful you will become. Strength does not come in complacency so work on yourself daily, grow in your own shoes. Become yourself. The more of you that you become, the more power you will then see.
