I found this book at a time I would say I needed it the most. Now I can’t seem to let it go. I have probably read it five times. And while I thought I was reading a book on how to gain self confidence, it turned out to be a guide book for a better life! The Ultimate Secrets of Total Self-Confidence by Dr. Rober Anthony.
I was scrolling through the amazing posts the writers on this platform put up, appreciating all the unmeasurable talent, and suddenly I felt this very immense gratitude, that writing and reading is not a thing of the past. And I’m so thankful for everyone here. Thank you for sharing your creativity! And thank you for taking me back after my looong hiatus.
I believe it’s safe to say that the life experiences of many of us have put us in weird positions where we have to choose between our peace and some other option which is probably deemed by society as ABSOLUTELY important. Toxic jobs, toxic relationships, toxic families. The sad part is that we’ve come to a point where choosing peace is equated to being irresponsible, or shallow, or ignorant, or just petty. So the question is, “what are you willing to trade your peace of mind for?” Money or job security? Just to be with someone? Anyone? Belongingness? Something a little dicey to think about it.
