"At least, I got to see you one last time.”

You don’t need anyone’s affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn’t actually about you. It’s about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don’t have to internalize that. Your worth isn’t contingent upon other people’s acceptance of you — it’s something inherent. You exist, and therefore, you matter. You’re allowed to voice your thoughts and feelings. You’re allowed to assert your needs and take up space. You’re allowed to hold onto the truth that who you are is exactly enough. And you’re allowed to remove anyone from your life who makes you feel otherwise.

THIS IS SO INSPIRATIONAL I HAVE TEARS IN MY EYES

Knowledge is knowing what to say. Wisdom is knowing whether or not to say it.
Be strong, but not rude. Be kind, but not weak. Be humble, but not timid. Be proud, but not arrogant.

So I thought maybe it would be a nice, fun approach to this evening to maybe do something different. So I Googled myself and I read the comments section, thinking I would get some tidbits of what people really think of me, and you know, share them with you for, you know, humorous purposes. Sidenote, no human being should ever, ever read the comment section, or Google one’s self at any time. But I did learn a lot about myself, I did. Some things I was already very well aware of. Let’s see, “Sandra Bullock is over 40” came up a lot. I know – I know that. “Sandra Bullock is way past 40”. Yeah, I know that, too. Oh and apparently, Julia, you and I are in a dispute over George Clooney. We talked about this right? It’s just – it’s shared custody and we’re both fine with it. I don’t know why people keep drumming it up. Lots and lots of comment about who I’ve dated, some are true, some I’ll never admit to. And there was a run of comments on people who didn’t understand why I was in this business. You know, funny things like, I quote anonymous, “I mean there is absolutely nothing special about her acting”, “She’s not particularly attractive”, “I can’t stand her”, “She’s mediocre”, “She’s over 40”.  

Happy Birthday Sandy!
You are a joy and an inspiration.
