Dirty Challenge # 1

Made this for Dirty Challenge # 1 HERE.

Sometimes I get so mad at myself

Handwritten quote in the upper left reads:
Nobody can hurt you without your permission. – Mahatma Gandhi

I tend to harbor negative comments, shrug away positive ones. I’ve listened to people who tell me I’m fat or “She’s not a good writer” when I shouldn’t have. Most of all, I’ve spent my entire life hiding myself. I hated having my picture taken, judging myself as harshly or even worse. But, no more. I won’t give people the permission to hurt me anymore. Thank God He gave me a man who loved me for who I am. So that I can look thru his eyes. 1-11-10
