So many of us walk this earth feeling like we are not enough. Not smart enough, tall enough, financially abundant enough, attractive enough and all their brothers and sisters cause us to feel an extra load of pressure and can lead to low energy, irritability and feelings of hopelessness. If your self talk tells you you should have taken a different route to work, or that you could have been nicer to your neighbor, or that you would have been better to buy a different vegetable for dinner, then by buying into your self talk you are contributing to a deeper feeling of not enough-ness. You might have brought it into existence at a young age when you misinterpreted what someone said or when even someone might have told you you were not enough. If they did, they were wrong. Feeling not good enough and anchoring it in with negative self talk isn't serving you anymore.
One simple way to heal not good enough is through practicing self acknowledgement. When I tell myself I should have answered a question in a workshop I'm taking differently, I'm strengthening my not enoughness muscle. Instead, if I acknowledge myself for having the courage to answer the question and notice the merits in my answer, I've strengthened the opposite muscle with equal weight. Which muscle do you want to strengthen? Try 3 self acknowledgements per day, for 3 months. You might be surprised by how not good enough you are NO LONGER feeling!
