It is so important that we love all parts of ourselves: our strengths and our weaknesses, our beauty and imperfections, our blind spots and undesirable qualities.
Brené Brown further supports this when she states that we must own our stories and love ourselves. Yet, despite all this, a question I get asked a lot as a coach is: What’s wrong with me?
If you notice yourself getting into negative feeling states when you ask yourself this question, it’s time to change the question. Instead of wondering what’s wrong with you, there is a different, higher-quality question you can ask.
When things don’t go as you thought they would, it is easy to beat ourselves up and feel shame and self-judgment. But I invite you to stop taking action from these places and instead consider how you can move onto a path that’s going to help you in the long term. Stop asking what’s wrong with you, and ask yourself another question.
In this episode, I’m helping you create an awareness of what you need right now, so you can develop the capacity to deal with any situation. We’re unpacking another way to approach the question ‘What’s wrong with me?’ and showing you how to give yourself what you need right now to fill yourself up.
