My Insecurities Make Me Feel Not Good Enough

A great reminder!

Eternal Hope Christian Counseling and Coaching

THE STRUGGLE IS REAL

I want you to take a moment for self-reflection.  Take a moment and dig deep into your most inner self and consider how many times that you are really unkind to yourself, relentlessly comparing yourself to others.  Consider that in spite of how many times that you have heard you are loved you are convinced that that is not possible.  That somehow you just don’t meet the criteria to be loved by anyone.  We find our inner thoughts searching for evidence that we don’t stack up, that we are not living to our full potential, that we are just “not good enough.”

  • I am not good enough
  • I am not kind enough
  • I am not loving enough
  • I am the worst mom ever
  • I am the worst friend ever
  • I am the worst sibling ever
  • I am the worst child ever
  • Nobody could possibly like me…

is the words I would hear.
When I was depressed,

 Stop that stinkin’ thinkin’…
is what my sister would say…
when I was crying and upset
and not able to get through the day.

Stinkin’ Thinkin’
is what abusers cause…
as they put victims down…
and exaggerate any flaws. Continue reading
