And since I did, I wrote myself an affirmation.
"Huh?" you say.
Well, if you're tired of reading nothing but rants in your flist's LJs (and I admit, rants are fun, but occasionally we need something different), you might consider joining a new community where nothing but the positive is posted: my_affirmations
In my opinion, everyone should learn to say good things about themselves sometimes. We're all too hard on ourselves, too down on ourselves. "I'm too fat," "I'm an idiot," "I'm a mess." People who know me will tell you that I'm okay with an occasional "I screwed up," but I won't listen to blanket statements that say "I am bad." I think they turn into self-fulfilling prophecies and excuses.
So join up and look for good things about yourself you can share with like-minded folks! The maintainer is joelacritter.
