I’ve spoken about your internal monologue before. We all have one and sometimes it’s quite a critic and your mind can be a very convincing lier to.
My destructive thoughts regarding if I’m good enough come in waves and that, I think, is just part of being human and maybe quite imperative to having quite an open, exploring mind.....no? Am I a good enough person to be a friend or in a relationship or to be a physio?
We all compare ourselves to other people and those people we compare ourselves to compare themselves to other people also. Society and what’s socially considered to be achieved leads us to failure and creates a negative feedback loop. The same old thinking gets the same old results.
It all stacks up and weights heavily on our minds. Boyfriend/girlfriend, money, friendship groups, clothes, body image and what society portrays is difficult to obtain and leads us to feel inadequate, lost and lonely. I definitely have moments feeling like that.
We all deserve to be loved but regardless, we should always live up to our full potential and love yourself first. I believe there is always more right than wrong with you.
It’s hard, but you must focus on the progress and process rather than perfection and on how far you've come rather than how far you have left to go.
I don’t know about other people but I know that I’m good at giving advice or some positive feedback but not very good at taking my own advice. This is something I definitely need to work on.
Here’s to continual progress.
