“I’ve never been a conceited person or cocky, never felt boastful, but I always had a sense of self-worth; I always had a real sense of myself.”-Will Ferrell
Lately I’ve really been focusing how I mentally talk to myself. While doing so I realized a repeating belief. The belief that I don’t I don’t deserve things. For example I’ve noticed that if I go out and buy something I feel guilty for it. Now this may be normal to some degree. But to me its out of a belief that I don’t deserve something.
I’ve been challenging this lately by treating myself to things like new clothes. Yet even though I tell myself I have the money for them I feel a guilt. Like I shouldn’t be spending that money on myself. It’s like I don’t feel valuable enough to buy those things so, so many times I haven’t or I feel an extreme guilt for it. I think many people are like this though. Yet we can spend money on other people and feel great about it.
This is just one example, but I have found many times where I just put myself on the back burner. Telling myself I’m not worth it. As I think about this I have done this since childhood. Like sometimes people would offer me say a treat like ice cream. I’d make up some lame excuse in my mind like it was for health reasons, but the real reason was I didn’t want to give myself something nice because I didn’t feel worth it.
I’m not sure if other people really deal with this like I do. But I’m here to tell you if you do you are definitely not alone and that you need to stop doing this because you are totally worth it! Now I’m not saying spend all your money up on yourself if you don’t have the money. I’m just saying you are worth it. You are worth spending money on exercise equipment to get healthy. You are worth taking a day off for a girls night/ guys night if you are a parent. You are worth having that ice cream someone offers you. You are worth it to feel good about that hot selfie you posted on Instagram.
So just stop saying you are not worth it! If you have to listen to the song “Worth It” on repeat 50 million times while tied to a chair to get it sucked into your stubborn head then so be it. Okay..maybe that’s a little extreme but you get my point. Treat yo self! Because you hecka deserve it!!!
Well that’s all I got for today, but I hope that helped one of you somehow!
Talk to you rockstars tomorrow,
