Why do we as humans, find it so difficult to be ok with ourselves, JUST AS WE ARE? We are all created perfectly, yet we continue to tell ourselves that we’re “not good enough”, that we need to be ‘more” , that someone else is “better than” me, etc, etc. We know the list can go on and on, as we each have our own way of creating a “lesser me” than what I truly AM.
Why is it so hard for us to truthfully LOVE every bit of who we ARE, acknowledging our perceived weaknesses and strengths? Today a friend Nancy reminded me that our strengths and our weaknesses are often one in the same!
It has taken me years to finally get to a place where I’m beginning, and only beginning, to appreciate myself for who I am… I have spent the last 5 yrs to really look inside, introspectively, at ME. I have come to question many of my own personal “truths.” In the process, I have learned that to honor myself, I need to trust what feels right to me, what resonates with me, and allow THAT to be my truth! I have also learned that my truth doesn’t have to be anyone else’s truth and it’s ok! It’s taken a while to remember and to awaken to myself, and my process continues. My journey has been awesome and rewarding. I continue to let myself out of another closet with each truth revealed! I have no reason to hide who I am…it’s what I was born to be!
