We oftent internalize, “I don’t deserve it!,” when good things happen to us. This attitude comes from a general feeling of unworthiness; which, sadly, starts in our childhood. Our parents and the tenents of our religious traditions tell us we are basically “bad” and will never measure up. As we move to adulthood, these feeling stay with us that the good things are just accidents and we don’t deserve them. HOGWASH!
The phrase you hear yourself saying so often, “I’m Sorry!”is a major problem keeping us from accepting ourselves as we are. We tend to look for opportunities to apologize or excuse ourselves, when what is called for is “What can I do for you?”
SPEAKING WELL OF YOURSELF is much easier, when you realize that God doesn’t make junk. You have purpose and are worthy just as you are. That doesn’t mean you can’t get better. We all can. The way to accomplish it is to be looking for ways to help others realize their better selves. The more you do it, the better you feel about yourself and good things, naturally, keep happening to you.
