EMPTINESS

Self-Image

Self-image may consist of three types:

  1. Self image resulting from how the individual sees himself or herself.
  2. Self image resulting from how others see the individual.
  3. Self image resulting from how the individual perceives others see him or her.

What controls or makes up your self-image?

When I first learned I was dealing with major depression I immediately felt ashamed, didn’t want anyone to know.  I allowed my self-image to be governed by the stigma of mental illness.  Add this to the emptiness and insecure feelings already in place b/c of the illness, and you have a recipe for a gigantic road block to wellness & recovery.  I now am chipping away the road block by learning the truth and letting ago of these false beliefs.

Don’t look at me

Every day is so wonderful
and suddenly, it’s hard to breathe
Now and then I get insecure
from all the pain, feel so ashamed

I am beautiful no matter what they say
Words can’t bring me down
I am beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can’t bring me down, oh no
So don’t you bring me down today

To all your friends you’re delirious
so consumed, in all your doom
Tryin’ hard to fill the emptiness, the piece is gone
left the puzzle undone, ain’t that the way it is

‘Cause you are beautiful no matter what they say
Words can’t bring you down, oh no
You are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can’t bring you down, oh no
So don’t you bring me down today

(No matter what we do)
No matter what we do
(No matter what we say)
No matter what we say
(We’re the song that’s outta tune)
(Full of beautiful mistakes)

(And everywhere we go)
And everywhere we go
(The sun will always shine)
The sun will always, always shine!
(But tomorrow we might awake on the other side)

‘Cause we are beautiful no matter what they say
Yes, words won’t bring us down, oh no
We are beautiful in every single way
Yes, words can’t bring us down, oh no
So don’t you bring me down today

Don’t you bring me down today

Don’t you bring me down today
