Sometimes I find it difficult not to question if there is something wrong with me, but I think the more I strive toward self-acceptance, the easier it becomes to distinguish between the times when I have actually failed and the times when I have done my best, even if things haven’t gone the way I had hoped.

Today I’m feeling some sadness, but I’m also at peace because I know that I have done all that I can up to this moment. Normally when I feel sadness, I want to close my heart off from the world, retreat. I want to remind myself how hard it can be to connect with people and how much I sometimes hate to interact with them. I am certainly feeling that to some degree. Being an introvert is hard.

Today I am making a choice, though. I am choosing to keep my heart open. I’m a good person and I believe the people I have allowed into my life are good people, and I think I’m becoming a better judge of that as life goes on. I am not only learning to accept myself, but I am learning to cherish the relationships in my life for what they are. Besides, quality is more important than quantity.

To all my friends:

“Remember, you don’t need a certain number of friends; just a number of friends you can be certain of.”
