Self-doubt is not incurable.
Nor is self-doubt a life threatening disease.
Or a terminal medical condition.
But it’s very real for the person who suffers from it.
And lives with it day in and day out.
Self-doubt can be emotionally crippling
and steal your life from under you.
I often wonder why some of us have a more difficult time than others.
Could it be our conditioning?
Does society send us mixed messages that are confusing?
Whatever the reason is
self-doubt is not a life sentence.
Like a cancer in the body – it can be removed.
If we break the habit of self-criticism
And learn to see ourselves In positive new ways
that sheds light on our value and strengths.
Then we can replace self-doubt
And the words we say to ourselves will be
“I love me.”
“When self-doubt creeps in, don’t ignore it – address it. Respond to harsh self-criticism with something more compassionate. Talk to yourself like a trusted friend and refuse to believe your unrealistic, negative inner monologue.”
