|Have you ever felt like you’re not enough?
I hope this blogpost will help you carve out a moment for you among everything you have going on. Pour yourself a cup of coffee or a glass of wine and treat yourself to settling in.
In a world telling you to be more, do more, balance more, consume more, lose more, achieve more – you have the power to bring the whirlwind of voices to a HALT and learn how to start believing ‘I Am Enough.’
If you have caught your self-esteem rise and fall like a carnival ride, you’re not alone. It’s a journey we all find ourselves on.
We all can do more to start believing ‘I Am Enough.’ It’s a part of the human existence.
Even if we don’t always use the word “enough,” so much of our negative self-talk stems from this one rampant falsehood. You may have felt like you’re not enough, but that lie sounded different than you might expect.
For instance: You might say, “I’ve felt terrible all day.” Why? “Because I’ve been wrestling with my kids over homeschooling.” Why is that bad? “Because it’s a constant struggle, and things are slipping through the cracks.” What does that mean? “I’m not good enough to do this.” And there it is.
“I feel discouraged because the social media post I poured energy into barely got engagement.” Why does that bother you? “I can’t grow on social media, therefore I’m not enough.”
“I didn’t hear back from that job opportunity, and now I just want to give up.” Why? “Because I’m obviously not good enough to get the job of my dreams.”
I’m not enough. I’m not enough. I’m not enough. That’s what so much comes down to. The bad news? This is more detrimental than we even realize. The good news? We can change it!
