You Are Worth It!

Good day everyone

Welcome back to the Café

Here is a piece of training I shared with a Management student this week.

I hope you find it helpful.

You Are Worth It!

Do you sometimes feel like you are a work in progress? Do you feel the drive to keep improving yourself and then find yourself in a spiral of despair because you just never feel like you measure up? For many people, this is their reality. Research has shown that this may be one of the most common causes of weight gain and emotional eating disorders. 

All of us need to find freedom from the cycle that we are imperfect. While we all have room to grow and develop, the most freeing of all realities about ourselves that we need to absorb and accept is that we are unique and beautiful human beings. There is no one quite like us on this earth, and there never will be. Once we accept this for ourselves, we can then look for ways to better the good in us. Without this perspective, we will constantly strive to find some self-acceptance and won’t move much beyond this point in our life.

An old African proverb reminds us that if we don’t have any enemies inside us, then no external enemies can cause us harm or hurt. Have you noticed when things are going well on the inside, and you feel secure and happy with life, something that goes wrong in your life doesn’t seem to be so bad, but when you feel bad about yourself, things are so different? The world seems to take on a much darker feeling, and it’s more challenging to cope when things are not going right?

Learning to love yourself and appreciate your uniqueness is often the first stage of learning how to control your weight, feel confident in studying or changing careers, or learn a new hobby. Many of the things we procrastinate over that are for our own benefit and enrichment are often the things we don’t do because, perhaps deep inside, we don’t think we are good enough or worthy enough to do these things for ourselves. 

Challenge those thoughts, and choose one thing you want to do for yourself starting tomorrow. – Because guess what, you are worth it! Most people have to battle the self-talk and rarely say anything nice about themselves. Try looking in the mirror when you wake up and tell your reflection what you would tell your best friend… You are worth it!
