Your Monday-Mantra: You Are Good Enough
At this fast-paced world, it’s easy to look down and feel like you’re not good enough—high expectations from your environment, the self-pressures you put to yourself, and all the stress combined, shatter you to broken pieces.
Little did you know, you can actually make the thoughts stop coming to your mind and pull yourself together from the slump of disappointed you’re currently in. If you find it hard to appreciate yourself for a bit, here are some thoughts that can help you regain yourself:
When you’re in the bottom of the wheel, there’s no other way to go other than upwards.
You might feel like your world is ending but it’s just a moment that soon will pass, and you need to believe in that too.
What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.
After fighting for something that you’ve put as your dream goal and eventually fail at it will mark you with a bloodless wound but it doesn’t mean you’ve failed. Failure gave you a lesson that no one can ever teach you, so sink that in and grow stronger from it.
Stop idealizing your green with others’.
Other people’s grass would always be greener than yours, that’s it—but the thing that most of us fail to see is the inside of the house. People will always present their persona to be better than others and hide their pain behind. You need to believe that everyone has their own sparks and flaws, just like you—you are special with your own flaws, so stop putting yourself in the comparison trap.
Choose to not beat yourself.
You’ve chosen to be though to yourself, so you can choose to be soft to yourself as well. Put your trust into yourself for a bit cause it’s the gate to your self-acceptance.
