STOP BEING HARD ON YOURSELF
Do you even realise how often you tell yourself the following?
“I’m so useless.”
“I’m such an idiot.”
“I never get it right. I am so stupid
For the umpteenth time you feel disappointed in yourself, ashamed of who you are, wracked with self-disappointment and sometimes self-hate. From deep within you feel like an utter failure, convinced you’re a nobody, a waste of time. You will never make it. You will never be a somebody. You’ve become such an expert at beating yourself up. Each day you find more opportunities to feel insignificant! To stop feeling good enough.
I used to feel the same.
l found ways beating myself up for my imperfections and then no matter how well I did, no matter how much I improved, still finding fault. Always looking at what went wrong. All I did its was never good enough.
In fact, all I was doing was hating myself for being human. Punishing myself for being fallible. Suffering for trying to be like someone else.
Because all I wanted was to be loved!
And I thought if I was perfect person, the world would love me. And then I would be happy.
But the reality is, if you hate yourself so much you will never be happy, even if the whole world does love you.
To be truly happy, you need just one person to love you, and that person is YOU!.
But how can you possibly love such an imperfect person as yourself?
By understanding six life truths:
- Control isn’t everything.
- Family doesn’t have to come first
- Relationships aren’t perfect and easy.
- Mistakes are Okay.
- You’re not responsible for others
- Life can be hard and challenging at times
How do you feel after pondering on the 6 truths of life?
Look in the mirror and see love, not hate.
Stop beating yourself up over everything you think, say or do. Stop criticizing yourself endlessly for all your so called ‘weaknesses’
Because every human being is born with flaws – yes its true.
Every person deserves love and support. yes they do
So feel good about yourself. oh go ahead….Feel great about yourself.
Look in the mirror and smile at the person smiling back at you.
Because that person is special, unique and deserves your love.
BECAUSE THAT PERSON IS YOU!
So STOP BEING HARD ON YOURSELF.
