It is funny how there are moments in your life, when you feel less about yourself. Perhaps it is the onslaught of events. Perhaps it is the actual or imagined perceptions about you from others. Perhaps it is the need to be loved by someone and it is not happening.
Many things can cause you to give in to that mocking, taunting voice in your head that tells you you are not good enough, beautiful enough or worthy enough. If you continue to give into it, it becomes a chorus of voices that throws a mirror of yourself up in your mind.
You look into that mirror and you are horrified. You believe that voice because of the image. You believe everyone sees that image who looks at you.
What happens, is as you buy into it, you begin to take that image and make it part of your outward self… not in detail but in demeanor and in what kind of energy you give off. You become it.
How to combat it? Like yourself. That voice will evaporate against a self will who believes and likes one’s self. Yes, you are not perfect. Yes, circumstances are not always wonderful. Yes, maybe the love of your life is not who you hope it would be or has not arrived yet….but damn it….you are wonderful.
Look into that mirror in your mind… and see this wonderful, good person you are that people are damn lucky to have as a friend, colleague and even lover in their lives.
Like yourself! I like me….So there!
