I created Positive Pocket in 2011 in response to a bullying incident which left me feeling sad, angry, embarrassed, upset, and anxious. That night, I went on the computer, typed up some of my favorite positive sayings and included some pictures that I liked – ones that made me feel good. I printed them out, put clear tape over it so they wouldn’t rip, and placed them in my jean pocket. The next day, when I was feeling anxious or down, I discretely pulled out my card, read it to myself to remind myself that I’m alright, and placed it back in my pocket. Do you know what? It worked! I had rediscovered my strength, and self-confidence within me!
