Society tells us “just be happy”, but we still feel sad, lonely, and numb.
Some of the daily messages we hear (or tell ourselves) are variations of “armor up”, “suck it up”, or “push through”. What do these messages tell us about our feelings of sadness, numbness, anxiousness, and hurt? Is “push through” self-love?
The bottom line:
WE START TO BELIEVE THAT WE ARE NEVER GOOD ENOUGH.
This belief impacts the way we see ourselves and the way we see others. Ultimately, it can wreak havoc on our lives and relationships!
– Does it ever feel impossible to get past the self-criticism and negative tape playing in your head?
– Does the saying “you have to love yourself before you can love anyone else” leave you feeling frustrated or confused?
– Are you wondering “how can I love myself when I know who I’ve been and the things I’ve done”?
