Friend, it is all too easy to struggle with our sense of self-worth. To question who we are, particularly when life hands us lemons and we find ourselves solidly immersed in personal struggles.
Any perceived failure has the ability to send us into a downward spiral of negative self-talk, the inner mean girl coming out in full force.
You can’t do that.
You’re not pretty enough.
You don’t deserve that.
No one is going to love you.
No one is going to want you.
How horrible our inner critic can be, and how awfully off base s/he is. If you allow yourself to succumb to this kind of self-talk, you will end up mired deeply in sadness.
Friend, when you find yourself at the mercy of thoughts like this, please, make every effort to replace them with the truth.
You are worthy.
You are loved.
You are beautiful.
You are strong.
You are magical.
You are unique.
Don’t let the lies you tell yourself undermine your sense of who you are. I know how easy it is to be critical, especially in times of deep sadness, but I also know that the reality of who you are is so much more than this moment you find yourself in.
Friend, you are so worthy of love, kindness, compassion, joy, and happiness. Until you remember this, I’ll remind you.
Your Trusted Friend ♥
