You know the inner voice in your head that tells you that you’re not good enough or pretty enough or smart enough?
The one that asks you why you think you’re capable of your goals and dreams.
“𝘞𝘩𝘰 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘵𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘬 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘤𝘢𝘯 𝘥𝘰 𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘴𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘴?”
The worries and doubts stemming from these words manifest as an ache in your chest.
Feeling unworthy and like an imposter.
I’m here to say that I hear you and I feel it too.
I wish I could say a set of heavy squats or a hug from a puppy would silence those negative beliefs. 𝐁𝐮𝐭 𝐭𝐡𝐞𝐲 𝐝𝐨𝐧’𝐭.
We turn down the volume on that inner critic by standing toe to toe with that B, and saying something along the lines of:
“𝘍*𝘤𝘬 𝘺𝘰𝘶, 𝘐 𝘭𝘪𝘷𝘦 𝘣𝘺 𝘮𝘺 𝘰𝘸𝘯 𝘴𝘤𝘳𝘪𝘱𝘵. 𝘐 𝘥𝘦𝘤𝘪𝘥𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 𝘐’𝘮 𝘸𝘰𝘳𝘵𝘩𝘺 𝘰𝘧 𝘢𝘭𝘭 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨𝘴 𝘐 𝘸𝘢𝘯𝘵!”
(Yours may have less expletives, but I really enjoy getting my point across lol)
Sometimes our mind is like a skipping record, stuck on the same the same the same the same the same words until we hit the damn needle to move on.
Figure out what’s going to help you hit the needle when that inner critic bi*ch is stuck on repeat.
