“You are known by the company you keep”. My mother use to tell me that quite often when I was growing up…and I suppose I said it to my kids. Today those words have a whole new meaning to me.
As we get older the “would have”…”should have”…and” could haves” can yell pretty loud in our heads, often leaving us feeling like we are a complete failure. None of us are perfect, but I really thought that by the time I was in my 50′s I would be a lot closer to it than this.
As most of you know …I am married to an amazing man…..hence the nick name..Mr. Amazing. Being married to such an amazing person is wonderful…sort of. The truth is it plays havoc with the self esteem. People are always in awe of him and I hardly ever get a mention.
There is another amazing person in my life…my best friend..
This is her helping me work on the drapes for my bedroom. She is a wonder woman. What I do for others in a year is nothing compared to her good deeds of the week. And I can tell you that she helps others because she truly wants to.
I could go on, but the point is I have really wonderful people in my life…so if mom was right and I am known by the company I keep…maybe..just maybe I’m okay. Why else would these wonderful people want to be with me?
Are you feeling down about yourself today? I hope this makes you pause and think about the people that like you…do you really think they would like junk?
