You have all probably heard the saying that we are our worst enemy and be assured that there is nothing more right than this. No one can ever harm us like we could, no one!
We tend to blame others for what we are going through, but actually no one can hurt you, or make you nervous, or put you down in any way if you know who you are and if you believe in yourself.
Unfortunately very few of us have so high level of confidences within and know their self-worth. And even these people have learned to be so, the hard way.
Most of the time we doubt ourselves, we complicate our lives, pollute our minds with unnecessary and mostly negative thoughts, we punish ourselves, hate ourselves, feel sorry for ourselves and above all, we pin this wrong-doings to the “outer forces”.
We blame the whole world for making our life a living hell. And I can easily tell you things like: life is beautiful; you must be positive; don’t worry the Universe knows what it is doing; but all these words won’t make you happier, won’t give you the protection you need and definitely won’t change the way you feel.
Although true, but they are just words and what you need is actions, visible results. But I could try to explain why are you feeling so worthless and suggest few tips how you could stop this feeling which might work if you are willing to understand.
First of all you must know that your thoughts are not even yours! How come? Well, think about it – we are all born as “tabula rasa”, “blank slate” which as we grow up is filled with sentences written by others, and since we don’t know this fact, we confuse them as our own thoughts.
Remember that at that particular age, when the words of others started writing themselves on our mind-board we were too young to understand them, or to rebel against them and thus these words, these thoughts remain stuck to us.
Now, imagine that most of these thoughts were full of anger, disappointment, unworthiness, that was pure reflection of the people with whom we were surrounded and because at that age our mind acted like a sponge, we have collected everything without questioning their liability.
So this is how these unreal, foreign thoughts became the very foundations of our own opinion for ourselves as we grew up.
I hope this explanation brought little more light upon the subject of thoughts and now you can take this knowledge into consideration and start seeing the beautiful being you are, which deserves all the love and protection in the world!
