How do you measure your self worth? Is it from feedback from others? It is your own internal feedback? If you are getting that feedback from others or yourself how does it appear? In a negative or positive way?
I have been observing this lately in others and I’ve noticed that many of us measure our own level of self worth from what others think of us. Maybe this is a natural human reaction in order to help provide us with feedback about our own sense of self and learning, but I’ve noticed that it is often more negative than positive. I see it everywhere, in the media, in organisations, in hospitals, in our family and friends. I guess it’s our own internal suffering that we go through sometimes in order to learn. But does it always have to be that way?
I’ve noticed it in myself. Whenever I have an internal negative dialogue in my head, circumstances conspire to give me back that negative feedback. Our external life truly is a mirror of our internal life. Sometimes that feedback is instantaneous and sometimes it is delayed in its delivery. Children are brilliant at giving back this feedback. I can’t tell you how many times I have felt insecurity about my parenting of the kids, only to have this affirmed!
So I think it is really important to regularly affirm positive things about ourselves. Here are some that I think are good.
I am worthy of Love
I am happy
I am content
I am peaceful
I am a good person
I am loving
I am loved
Great things are happening to me
I love my life
Life is good
I appreciate my life
I appreciate all the wonderful experiences that my life presents to me, both good and bad. It’s all learning.
I am patient with myself and others
I have a great life
I am happy and healthy
I am abundant in so many ways
There are millions of positive affirmations and this is just an example, but the more you practise these, the better you begin to feel.
Abraham Hicks says that 17 seconds of pure positive thought is equivalent to 20,000 hours of action! So what are you waiting for?
Have a Great Day! xx
