Every single day good people imprison themselves.
They tell themselves that they are not enough. That they are failures. That they are too sensitive. That they are not sensitive enough. That they are not pretty enough. That they are not thin enough. That nothing good will ever happen for them. That nobody will ever love them. And a lot of other stuff that hurts and keeps them small.
And that’s not all.
They believe all that crap.
They probably believe it because someone once told them that crap. And they didn’t stop and ask if was true or not. So, they just took it on, and from that point forward, they came at their lives from a small, “less than” place.
That’s the saddest thing in the world to me.
Because the way we see and experience ourselves is the single biggest factor in determining the quality of our lives.
Until you look at yourself and respect what you see, you will keep yourself small, and yes, imprisoned.
But you have a different option.
You can choose to NOT make the crap that anyone has ever told you about you be more important to you than what YOU KNOW about you. (read that again)
Are you doing the very best you can?
Do you hold yourself accountable for being the person you most want to be?
Are you showing up, every single day, with gratitude in your heart for your life?
Then you are doing great.
There is nothing wrong with you.
You have n.o.t.h.i.n.g. to be ashamed of.
Let others say what they will say. That’s never had anything to do with you anyway.
What you do next matters…
