JUST HOW PERFECT DO I HAVE TO BE?
I have long held out hope of my family loving me, wanting me, and being good enough for them to love. There isnít such a thing, as being good enough to love. You should be loved just as you are; not because of what you can accomplish, or have accomplished in past. There shouldnít be any other reason, than you exist, and are one of Godís creatures. To feel love of others, you must first be able to feel love of self. If you are unable to feel love for yourself, from yourself, how can you possibly know what it feels like to be loved by others? How do you accept that love and trust, if youíve never learned to love yourself? It sounds easy to be able to love yourself, but it can be most difficult, and challenging task, set before us. It is so easy to believe those negative statements we give ourselves. We especially devour negative things people say about us. Can you even count times youíve called yourself stupid for making a small mistake, or just being human? How many times have you felt like a loser or not good enough, because of minor errors or lapses, that we would easily overlook in another person, but obsess and make into a huge problem for ourselves? It isnít fair but we do it.
We can make great strides in our life and accomplish great things; yet, it isnít good things we do, that we remember and savor; itís mistakes or loss opportunities that we dwell or even obsess on. Instead of building up our self-esteem and self-images we constantly tear ourselves down. Why must we intensely focus on an extra fat roll, or some imagined imperfection? What is this endless pursuit for perfection that we are striving for? It isnít there. It doesnít happen. God did not make us perfect and never expected that out of us. If we were actually perfect, we could be God. Guess What? He isnít looking for a replacement. When he does heíll take out an ad. Until then donít worry about it.
Head Position And Deep Breathing For Maximum Positivity!Written by Tim Webb
Have you ever considered that you may be subconsciously sabotaging and inhibiting your own potential positive emotions through position of your head and manner in which you breathe?
Personally, before a few years ago, I had never really considered it. However as I became more interested in how deep focused breathing could positively change your body and mindset I looked more closely at such things.
What I want you to do right now is pop your chin on your chest and bring into your mind a negative image or thought. Take a few minutes to focus on this thought with your chin down.
Now, what I want you to try next is this. While holding same thought in your mind raise your chin off your chest, bring your head up, and stand tall.
What I found (and Iím sure you did also) was that when you bring your head up and stand proud negative image or thought becomes less intense. Essentially, it begins to dissipate!
