The Wrong People

Today, I was at lunch with one of my teenagers. She confided that she'd stumbled across a journal she kept when she was in elementary school, and it was "SO DRAMATIC."

I asked for an example, and she said, "Well... I was kind of sad and wrote that I thought you had to be perfect all the time for people to like you."

"That's interesting...  what do you think about that now?"

She paused for a minute and answered thoughtfully, "I don't believe that now...  I just think I wasn't talking to the right people."

And I thought that was quite wise...

Sometimes when the world seems like it's against us and we believe all the negative things about ourselves, maybe we're just not talking to the right people.
