Watch Out! Currently writing “Cage Fight”! Can’t wait to tell my story about overcoming thoughts of not being good enough.
For as long as I can remember, I have battled my own thoughts and low self-esteem. Where do the ideas that you are not good enough come from?
I recall this battle in my mind as early as five years old. I remember being afraid to speak out because I thought everyone was judging me and making fun of me.
I have personally dealt with thoughts such as: “I can’t”. “They are watching me.” “What if I mess up.” “They don’t like me”. “I don’t fit in”. “They are better than me”. “I’m fat.” “I’m ugly.” “No one want’s to hear my thoughts”. “They are talking about me.” “They are laughing at me.” “What if they judge me.”
These thoughts are planted like seeds into your thoughts by family and society. We are not born with insecurity and self doubt.
YOU must trim and shape these thoughts so they don’t become overgrown and out of control. Many times I have reminded myself; I am worthy and I am enough!
I began by using affirmations and pray each day for God’s strength and guidance. Turn those negative thoughts into positive ones and embrace who you are!
You would be amazed at the difference it makes using positive affirmations to turn those negative thoughts into positive ones. Examples of the affirmations I use are below.
- I am that I am.
- I am enough.
- I am strong.
- I am beautiful.
- I am worthy.
I also choose an affirmation and log it into my daily planner each day. It helps to give me a boost any time I need it throughout my day. Give it a try and let me know your progress.
