I spent many years feeling like I would only be enough when…
– I lost the weight
– Got a promotion
– Had a new car
– Had longer hair
– Had clearer skin
– Had better clothes
– ‘He’ called
I thought when I achieved those things and only then, that I would be acceptable to others and therefore lovable.
The reality is even if one of those things was achieved I’d simply replace it with another!
I was looking for acceptance from others but never really felt I got it.
It took many years of not feeling good enough to work out why?
The one person I needed to accept me was the one person that didn’t…
Learning to love myself was not easy.
But it sure was easier than living a life where I didn’t like myself!
When I finally cracked first liking and then loving myself it was so liberating.
Life became so much more enjoyable.
To be able to play a part in helping someone else to recognise their wonderful and unique qualities is an amazing experience.
Are you walking tall?
