It’s not your fault. Society has taught us to see ourselves as not enough. Our inner critic is programmed to look for weaknesses.
I used to beat myself up every day. I can remember standing in front of the mirror telling myself how ugly I looked. The deep despair I would feel from comparing myself to others. The constant inner voices telling me that I am not good enough.
Thank GOD I have turned that around. I am now gentle with myself. I have found the courage to be kind to myself.
Being hard on yourself looks differently for everyone.
- Do you talk negatively about yourself?
- Do you shame yourself when you make a mistake?
- Do you look in the mirror and say mean things to yourself?
- Do you eat food that you know will harm you?
- Do you over exercise or don’t exercise at all?
- Do you avoid self-care and put everyone’s needs before you?
- Do you restrict your food in fear of gaining weight?
These are just a few ways that we can beat ourselves up. What are the ways you beat yourself up?
When we are hard on ourselves we choose to create a life of pain. The good news is we actually have a choice. You can choose to live a life with more pleasure. However, that is not easy. We are trained to avoid pain. However, we can learn to lean into pleasure.
In this video, I will teach you how to shift from beating yourself up to having more moments of pleasure in your life.
- Feeling confident and open to your beauty?
- Looking in the mirror and saying something nice to yourself.
- Prioritizing time for Self-Care.
- Eating your meals with ease and grace.
On the other side of beating yourself is a life full of confidence, power, love, and acceptance.
It’s a place that you are designed to live. It is where you will finally feel at peace. But what do you have to do to get there?
