I got my feelings hurt earlier this week. Just a little thing, but I felt unwelcome. It's a yucky feeling.
My low-self-esteem-self isn't strong enough for that. Which I find so sad. I had really hoped I would outgrow low self esteem.
I expressed some of my feelings, and I got scolded by my mom for being catty. Also a yucky feeling and also something that I wish I could outgrow. When I explained the whole situation, we both ended up in tears that each one was hurting.
In the end, I decided my hurt feelings were not worth it. I realized I probably was being a little catty after all. And the kicker is I think I turned right around and said something to hurt someone else in pretty much the same way.
I'm wondering when I'll learn. Or outgrow this.
