The ego is the worn-out script that plays out in our head to convince us of our unworthiness. This is coupled with recalling negative thoughts that have us believe we are less than perfect.
Should I have decided this before falling in love with you? Did I have that option?
The more we compare ourselves to others, the more we diminish the good within us. The elusive person you’re jealous of is as flawed and fragile as you are.
I was thinking about the idea of there being faults in our stars. I guess nobody is perfect. I guess we all have faults. We all have shortcomings – places in time and space and love stories where we fall short. I think I’ve decided we never did.
One day you wake up and the haze is gone. Every thought is free from negative connotations, once prettily tied up in a bow on each passerby. Every process and function no longer clogged with anxiety-ridden fears. When the light breaks through, there’s no stopping in illuminating the dark.
I have so much to be thankful for, and to be honest; I could not find any crack in my life that I am discontented with. I can’t. So why do I have this constant feeling that it is not enough? Why do I feel like there are greater things for me that I somehow cannot see? In the recesses of my heart there is a missing puzzle piece, and the thought that I might never discover it frightens me to my bones.
Random conversations with your closest friends are the best because they just get you and never fail to make your day ten times brighter. Need to rant about your terrible day? Friends: your one stop shop for unloading your troubles, literally.
We’re not responsible for other people’s decisions. We’re only responsible for our own. When we truly grasp this, it’s like a weight has been lifted and in its place is a deep, profound sense of inner peace.
You led me to the point of realization. The point where I had to come to terms with reality. This was not love, this was not anything. So I let you go. You tried to hold onto me for a little while. But I knew you felt the same way, which was nothing.
Cultivating a simple gratitude practice by journaling five things you’re grateful for first thing in the morning and before you go to sleep at night can change everything for you. Gratitude turns we have into enough. And once we believe that what we have and where are is enough right now then the space has been opened for you to grow into where you want to be.
