Repeat to Yourself: They’re Not Here

Sometimes it’s easier to remember the people who makes us feel bad than the people who make us feel good. Whenever the memory of those bad-vibes people come into my mind, I say these words to myself, “They’re not here.”

They’re not here. So I don’t have to feel miserable about what they did to me. They’re not here. So I don’t have to feel afraid of what they might do to me. They’re not here. So I’ll remember that they do not control me. They’re not here. So I’ll remember that I have power over my life.

They are not here.

I am here.
