The Negative Words of People You Love… You are fat and ugly and nobody is ever going to love you. Grandpa Jerry
If you lose 25 pounds, Ill buy you a new wardrobe. –Ex-boyfriend, E
Just to show you where you stand…We have no future. –E
You have nothing to offer me. You know nothing about world issues…like Global Economics. –E
Yah. You never would have thought [shed turn out pretty] watching her grow up. –Longtime neighbor, T
You have a really pretty face, but youre a little bottom heavy. –Ex-boyfriend, J
If I could afford it, Id buy you boobs. –Ex-boyfriend, M
How come you dont workout? Dont you want to get a man? –Former crush, T
Youre not what Im looking for. Youre not quite right. –Ex-boyfriend, T
I just dont find you attractive. I dont like tattoos. –T
You will never make a good mother. You cant even take care of yourself. –T
I….will never love you. –T
Thats fucking disgusting. Why would you do that. –Friends mom
After a lifetime of negative words… Is there any self-esteem left? How does one survive? Does a soul ever really heal? What are the consequences of negative comments? Who can be victimized? Where do you go from here?
What impact has this program had on my life? Old wounds never really die, they just get buried for awhile. Love, through positive words, will allow for healing. I understand why I am the way I am. I know my next destination, for the first time. Growth is a continuous process.
The Final Word To all those abusive people in my life… Thank You!
