"It is your road and yours alone. Others may walk it with you, but no one can walk it for you. Accept yourself and your actions. Own your thoughts. Speak up when wrong, and apologize. Know your path at all times. To do this you must know yourself inside and out, accept your gifts as well as your shortcomings, and grow each day with honesty, integrity, compassion, faith, and brotherhood... I have made myself what I am." —TECUMSEH, SHAWNEE: www.QuantumGrace.net ..*
I am an alpha-female. This is why I achieve more than others. It is why I do not tolerate bullshit. It is why the only person I compete with, is myself. I do not play the victim. I do not need another person to survive in this world, as I am not co-dependent. I know when to walk away from something or someone who is not worthy of my time. Thank you, Wendy, for reminding me how awesome I am!
I'm pinning this in here. Mainly because I am doing my best to be less toxic. Due to my abandonment in my early life, and at times in my early 20's, I am prone to be needy with it being mostly emotional needs. I don't have a lot of physical contact with anyone (and when I say "physical" I really do mean touching, hugging, kissing, cuddling, etc.) and I think that it's very important to have on a daily basis.
