Positive/empowering thoughts.

Hey guys.

Hopefully it's okay to post this here and mimick a few of the ideas on the ED support board...

It can be really easy to keep thinking bad thoughts about ourselves when we've been through bad experiences, or to "re-inforce" them in our minds.

So maybe we could try and make a list of good positive things about ourselves (directly related to experiences or not) and encourage each other!
  1. Bad experiences in life does not make us weak.
Follow it on? :)

Where do you turn when the night turns to singing
such sweet melodies and you flash your fin
then it's back to the depths where I cannot see you
but I built these towers just to honour you.....

  14. Reaching the bottom makes reaching the top even more amazing when you get there and makes you appreciate it so much more.
  15. Knowing you can get through something awful and come out of the other side can give you so much strength, confidence and pride in yourself.
  16. You are not alone. People do not think anything bad about you because of what has happened. People care about you and want to help, and you DO deserve that support
