Enough is Enough - Lesson's for My Son (DLP)

I am on a roll with this book and I love it! I thought I would also try my hand at the Documented Life Project.

To me 'cry me a river' was a little tough for me so I googled it to see the meaning behind it and decided to journal about how to deal with people's harsh opinions. This came at the right time as today my son told me his feelings got hurt at school the other day because a boy told him he didn't like him for no reason.  I have been really motivated to work on my son's lessons book and this journal entry was very useful for me as well (they always are).

I did use lots of acrylic paints and some inks (spray and india). I did collage some papers on this page but ended up covering most of them.


The journalling reads:

Sometimes 'enough is enough'. So please be strong and know when enough is enough. Take your stand, speak up and refuse to let others hurt you. Throughout your lifetime some people will discredit you, disrespect you and treat you poorly for no apparent reason at all. Don't consume yourself with trying to change them or win their approval. And don't make any space in your heart to hate them. You don't have control over what others think about you, but you do have control over how you decide to internalize their opinions. Leave them to their own judgements. Let people love you for who you are, and not for who they want you to be. Or let them walk away if they choose. They can't harm you either way; it's their understanding that is faulty, not yours. Please love and respect yourself enough to say enough is enough and choose what your heart tells you. 

Thank you for stopping by!
