I found this very powerful, Moonglow. My partner has told me to say things like that out loud, because it gives the words more strength.
I have not been able to achieve the same level of power with the out loud statements than I would like, but I think that has to do with not being able to believe in myself as I should. I am getting better at that though, and working harder every day. I have moments where I can strip my fears of their power over me, and that feels amazing!
You sound like we have common struggles. I am actively looking for new friends, and email ones count. If you are interested, send me a PM.
