There is nothing wrong, with patting yourself on the back. It is often said, that the only one you can count on is you, because you know that your the only one to show up, for everything. We all know that counting on someone is difficult to do, because when we open up to someone, we also, open up to disappointment and hurt. The only thing that is certain, is our ability to work through it, because part of growth is believing that what you don’t know, you can certainly learn. Be sure to acknowledge your accomplishments, the more you do, the more you will want to do.
