I no longer hate myself.
I now believe in myself.
One of my [______] clients told me this recently in a coaching call.
This was huge success for her.
This is the dream right?
To stop hating yourself.
To believe in yourself.
I can already hear you … you’re telling yourself a story like this, “This happened easily and quickly because her client is special.”
Easy and fast? HA!
But yes, she is absolutely as special as you are!
Notice above, the space before client. The words for that space are “long-term.”
She no longer hates herself and is now able to believe in herself because she did a lot of work.
She struggled with her worthiness. She felt like “dirt.” She even tried hating herself in order to gain her worthiness. Obviously, none of it worked.
She took a bunch of small steps.
She never gave up on herself.
She continued to show up.
She owned all the messy parts of herself.
She started to see all of her strengths + her flaws.
She realized she was much more than her flaws.
She started to value herself.
She began to like herself.
She started trusting herself + her opinions.
She began to treat herself the way she treats her granddaughters … with unlimited love + kindness.
The hatred stopped.
The belief in herself grew.
Notice I didn’t say anything about the outside of her life changing. It was about the insides of her life. She stopped listening and believing those internal voices that got in the way of who she really is and the value she has to offer others.
Stop your self-hatred.
Start believing in you.
If not now, when?
P.S. One of my favorite places to hang out is Instagram. Are we connected?
