The Lies We Tell Ourselves

The lies we tell ourselves are too many to even try to attempt to list.

I’m not even going to try.

Instead, I want to take a moment and give you time to think how many times and how many ways you lie to yourself.

How much are you your own worst enemy?

    1. I think we are conditioned to believe the worst. Think of how gossip spreads—most interesting is negative stories whether real or not. Rarely does something positive receive much traction. We replay the negative savoring all the details while often dismissing any positives. Think about how you receive compliments…do you dismiss them, or accept them? On my own part, I am working on this along with many other things.
      You are not alone in this journey.


  1. I’m reading your response to Steph Allen and are you saying accepting compliments is something you have to do to go forward in this journey?


    1. I believe so. Until you start seeing yourself in a positive way, you will not be able to move in a positive direction. You will remain stuck in negativity. Affirmations only work when we believe in them. You are what you think you are. Accept the compliments; those are gifts, roses to help you along in your journey. 🌹


  2. One of the lies I have to stop telling myself is when someone compliments me, it’s just for a favor or because they are obligated to do so (it’s my mother, she has to say that, etc.)

    I’m so used to thinking beyond the surface that I find it hard to just take someone’s comments at face value. But it’s not fair to judge their motives.
