Are you your own worst enemy?
I know myself that I have come up against a battle with the woman in the mirror more than once. Sometimes it can be frustrating when you are working to build a better life for your family, still keep your individual identity and grow as a person. It is like a juggling act and sometimes those balls look more like chainsaws!
While our inner critic is of course in our mind, you may also notice that what is in your mind comes out your mouth. Even though you are thinking that you are able to keep it hidden and no one knows how you are feeling, your conversation will reveal was is in your heart and mind.
Sometimes we say dis-empowering words and we don’t even realize we are doing it. We call ourselves stupid or say that we can’t do something. Not only is that horrible for us to say that about ourselves but other people are listening. Those that look up to us are listening.
The people that look up to us are saying “If she/he cannot do it then how can I do it?” and no matter how much we think we are faking it and not showing our true feelings, we are showing them. That is why we have to work on ourselves from the inside out.
