Nobody can make you feel inferior without your consent. – Eleanor Roosevelt
This is one of the things I struggle with, on a regular basis. I know that it is true, and that I am the one in control of my self-esteem, but sometimes I have an off day, or several off days, and I lose sight of the truth in it. I am a good person, I try to do the right thing, and I know that Karma is a bitch, so I do try to not put out an excessive amount of negativity, but there have been a couple of incidents of late that, at least temporarily, caused me to roll back into that insecure little girl. This time around, I'm kind of attributing it to still getting back into the groove of faire being over and some of the other changes that have happened at work and at home. I don't do change particularly well, and I know this, and there is more change afoot, at least at home, that, quite frankly, I'm not sure where it will land me, though I'm fairly certain that I have at least a few months to make my own changes if I end up having to move.
In the meantime, I am taking each day as it comes, getting faire packed back up again, getting winter clothes packed up, and reclaiming my bedroom and closet from the wreck that it's become in the last few months.
