Wanting to feel special

23 Dec

It bothers me that I need reassurance that people like me, that I’m a good person. I feel like it’s only valid if someone else says it to me, not if I think it of myself. Growing up in a critical perfectionistic family I have major self esteem issues. When people say nice things about me it catches me off guard and I probably react awkwardly but I can replay those words sometimes when I’m having a rough time or even on good days. I guess everyone likes to hear they’re special. And it means the world if it comes from people you care about and respect too.

    I know I love hearing those words…you are loved, special, etc. It does mean the world. XX
