Many times our insecurities are built on a false understanding of who we are.
Maybe we’ve allowed other people to define us for so long that we’ve forgotten how to define ourselves.
Maybe we’ve allowed negative experiences to shape our view of who we are.
Maybe we allow our own insecurities to speak louder than all other thoughts.
I don’t know your experience & I don’t know who you are and how you arrived at your identity but I know you are worthy of positive and affirming thoughts.
Self-Love calls us to create new pathways for positive thinking. Sometimes life weighs us down and we find ourselves sucked into negative thinking. Instead of beating ourselves into undoing old ways of thinking, identify the areas in your life where insecurity shapes your actions and create pathways of positive thinking to shift your perspective.
In my life, I know that certain situations trigger the thought “you are not enough” so instead of trying to undo these thoughts I now respond with “Psalm 139:14 tells me that I am fearfully and wonderfully made”. I’m creating a new pathway for the moments when I’m filled with negativity. Instead of repeating “you are not enough”, I now spend that energy reminding myself that I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
I don’t know what negative thoughts haunt you but I do know that rewiring your brain is a necessary part of your Self-Love journey.
Happy Self-Love Sunday! Have a wonderfully and fulfilling week!
