I have spent a good deal of my life stuck in a rut of that “I’m not enough” feeling. I saw and believed without question how others around judged value in themselves and applied it to myself. And I set unreachable standards and measures for myself and berates and bullied myself when I didn’t reach them. Before long this became my most prominent inner voice. This voice became the truth for me, it had drowned out any positive thoughts. This led to more negative personal assessments and judgement. Before long I closed off to believing anything else. What I had forgotten how to do was hold up the mirror of what others saw in me and allow it to be heard and seen. To question self judging thoughts. To leave room that this inner voice could be scared, fearful or just plain wrong.
