This week's video is very close to my heart which is why I felt it deserved to be longer than my past two (How To Achieve Any Goal & How To Overcome Your Greatest Fear). I have much to say about the topic of self-hate because it has been a multi-decade legacy in my own life and I have done a tremendous amount of inner work over the years to replace it with self-love. Day by day. Bit by bit.
Not feeling good enough is something I believe we all struggle with to some extent no matter what we've achieved, what we look like, or what our loved ones say to the contrary. And if you've been following my work for a while, you know that I am quite candid about my own journey through self-hate (a more extreme version of self-criticism) as well as my struggle with depression and suicidal thoughts. I'm open about these things because I know that many people are suffering in silence and in darkness and my hope is that by sharing my experience, it will help to add some light and relief to their day.
The consequences of our sense of unworthiness is far-reaching and often bleeds into every area of our lives. When it's extreme and develops into genuine self-hate, depression and/or suicidal thoughts may go along with it, as do addictions and other harmful ways to cope with all the bad feelings inside. This lack of self-love can really cause havoc on our finances, relationships, health, body and sense of self. We automatically and unconsciously block ourselves from all the things we feel we don't deserve. It's just so sad. We deserve it all. We are worthy of so much. We are so much more than we give ourselves credit for.
How does not feeling good enough affect your life? What does it prevent you from doing, having, being? It might be worth thinking about.
In this video I share a few of the ways I've decreased the self-hate and increased my self-love but there are countless ways to change the tapes. It's up to you to find what will work for you once you're ready to unhook yourself from the thoughts and beliefs that are holding you back.
