Who would ever think that two small words

 such as "how" and "why" could impact a person's life.

I wasn't asked these questions very often 

when I was younger. "How was school? How are you

today? Why don't you always eat? Why don't

you look in mirrors? Why do you feel so low about yourself?

How come you're always depressed? Why do

you spend all day in your room? etc." 

 

I wonder if I was asked would I have turned out differently.

Would I have confidence, happiness, and love

myself inside and out? Would I feel like I belonged, that I 

wasn't a failure in everything? That I just didn't

take up space. I would like to think, Yes, I would have been

different, positive and upbeat. I try to overcome

these feelings but it is such a daily struggle, one I have been

dealing with for over thirty five years.

 

I had developed bonds with these negative emotions. They

became my best friends over the years. Then I 

realized that my best friends turned into my enemies by 

torturing me daily. Funny, Two small three

letter words did such huge damage.
