"I am what I believe I am"

I've been somewhat absent from a lot of aspects of my life for the past five or six days. I've been consumed with something that happened to me and have found it difficult to get past. To make a long story short, a nameless individual decided to post hateful, crude and malicious things about me on a public blog for the whole world to see...none of which was true. I didn't deserve it and it hurt...a lot. I tried my best to figure out who the person was so that I could talk to them in person and try to resolve whatever issue he/she has with me, but I was unable to discover their well-hidden identity.

I've gone back and forth with sadness and anger, as well as tried to just blow it off. But it seems to keep coming back to me and making it difficult to focus on much else. Last night, however, as I checked my "Daily Affirmation" on my phone, I found that the quote spoke directly to this situation. It couldn't have come at a better time...

"It does not matter what other people say or do. What matters is how I choose to react and what I choose to believe about myself.", I've decided to repeat this to myself any time I feel consumed with thoughts about what's happened in an effort to try and move on and forget. We'll see how long that takes. :)

I am what I believe I am...I am what I believe I am...I am what I believe I am...
