When my grades started to drop, my mom asked me what was up. I told her that kids were making fun of me at school. She asked me what kind of things they were saying, and I told her. Her response, "well honey, it wouldn't bother you so much if you weren't afraid it was true. If they told you that you were a blue frog, what would you say?" I told her I would laugh.
Her point was well taken. I realized that I needed to become comfortable in my own skin. That way if people said something that was true about me, I would know that it was a part of me that I accepted, and if they said something I knew to be false, it would go in the same category of "blue frog."
I lost the concept of the blue frog today. Someone said something to me that utterly shattered my peace of mind. And I realized that it wouldn't bother me so much if I didn't fear it was true. So, magnifying glass in hand, I'm going to perform a little omphaloskepsis today and see if I can't either decide to put those words in the category of blue frog, or perhaps make some changes so that those words no longer apply.
In the meantime, I urge you all to find your own blue frogs, whatever they may be.
