I'm beginning to sound like broken record. I do hold back from being Me, because of the not-good-enoughs swirling in my DNA, which cause me anxiety.
Before you tell me to STOP IT....
I have stopped my not-good-enoughs in its tracks, but it has to start somehow somewhere.. Something has to catch fire before you put the fire out.
I don't think there's any way to stop the thoughts from forming. And the hardest job is not believe in the lie that we believed as the truth all our lives. And it's possible to listen, acknowledge and do what scares you most, which is to drop the not-good-enoughs and just be good, and have faith that that is enough.
