You ARE Enough!
You ARE Enough!!
You believe you are not worthy of love, friendship and understanding. You believe you are not enough.
Let me tell you, my friend…you are WRONG. You believe you are unworthy or not enough because somewhere over the years you have been told or made to feel that way. In my case, I was always told I was fat and ugly. I heard those words every day from before the age of 5. As I grew up, I based every decision on my weight, size, etc. I was a fitness fanatic who played at least some type of competitive sport at least once per day. That was when I was at school. At home I would do my own workout, go for a 30+km bike ride (racing), and did a great deal of physical work during my summers off school. Despite everything I did, I always felt fat and ugly. Those words were destroying my life!
Every time my boyfriend would turn his head and look at someone else, I compared myself. I should have had longer and blonder hair, I should have a smaller waist, I shouldn’t have this muscular back and powerfully built legs. Does that make me masculine? Self-talk was yelling at me that he would prefer her…I couldn’t have been more wrong. This is not something we do to ourselves. Not feeling a sense of self-worth is a destructive and lonely existence. But we must realize that we are doing it to ourselves. We are taking other people’s words as our own, and that is so wrong.
All of this creates a downward spiral into self-loathing, depression, eating disorders, just to name a few. When you let someone else tell you what they think and feel about you, is it really any of your business? Those are their thoughts, ideas, comments. YOU are a unique being on this world. There is not another like you. What gives someone else the right to dictate how you should look, dress, and feel. That is so wrong on so many levels. YOU are responsible for YOU. End of story!
When you keep yourself locked in the low self-worth/self-esteem ideals, you stay isolated and protected from anyone who really wants to love you and care for you.
I look at you and see the love, kindness, compassion, and pain that is trapped behind your wall and mask. It’s time to step away from those who keep you down. It’s your time to shine as a true being of love and compassion.
Today is YOUR DAY!!! Show yourself that you ARE WORTHY; You ARE ENOUGH! Believe it, feel it, breathe it in to every cell of your body every minute of every day, because it is the truth. Practice self-talk gently at first. Be kind to yourself. Stand in front of a mirror like I had to do many years ago and look at the eyes. I like my eyes. I think they are my best feature. So, I slowly began telling myself, “I like my eyes,” that grew into, “I have beautiful eyes.” Practice talking to yourself kindly and also begin to shut out all negative talk from others. You do not have to listen to it…you have a choice.
Today, I want you to Rip down those barriers! Tell yourself You ARE WORTHY!!! You ARE ENOUGH!!! You are Beautiful!!!
