Ladies--we need to talk. I see so many of you beautiful creatures out there beating yourselves up, demeaning yourselves, and breaking your own self down.
This is not okay!! I think as women especially, we’re held to such a high standard. We’re supposed to be classy in the streets, but trashy in the sheets. We’re expected to be kind, but not too kind because then we’d be a pushover. Oh, but if we’re too “unkind”, we might be labeled as a bitch. We’re supposed to look pretty, but not like we’re trying too hard, because then someone might call us a slut.
Will all this pressure put on us, what are we supposed to do?? Who are we supposed to be?
I’m willing to bet that you are too hard on yourself. That you expect A LOT from yourself, but you never feel like you really measure up. Maybe when you were growing up, you were told that you weren’t enough. Or you saw your dad treat your mom like she wasn’t enough. Or you internalized all the messaging out there about how a woman should look, act, feel, etc.
Are you overthinking everything you do? Do you leave conversations and replay everything that was said in your mind, and cringe at all the times you felt like you said the “wrong” thing? Are you thinking to yourself “I was too pushy” or “did I talk to much?” or “does he/she even like me??”
Your feelings of unworthiness can be so paralyzing that you might be having a hard time expressing yourself, or being honest about your needs, or becoming the woman you desire to be.
I SEE you, and I know what you’re going through. I struggled with feeling unworthy (and still do sometimes) because of the things I was told when I was a young girl. The hurtful words have burned in my mind and held me back for wayyy too long.
Those words are still deeply ingrained in my mind, and I’ve had to do a ton of mindset work to move past them. I’ve had to REALLY work hard on changing that script so that someone else’s judgment doesn’t determine how I live my life.
So if you’re feeling unworthy right now, how can you move forward? How can you begin to feel more worthy?
