It seems as though, no matter what she does, she’s just not good enough.
Growing up, she had decent grades but did not want to go to college. She began working full-time right out of high school. She’s now a manager at her local grocery store.
Meg throws herself into her work so she doesn’t have to deal with the people closest to her.
Her parents have never liked her taste in men. They have been very vocal about this with her. They do not “approve” of her live-in boyfriend of 8 months. They often tell her to break up with him. It isn’t as if she is still in high school. Meg is 27 years old.
They tell Meg she should be more like her older sister, Mandy. She’s a nurse, been married for 3 years to Jeff (a doctor), and they have a beautiful baby boy, Tristan who just turned 1.
When Meg was a child, her parents referred to her as “The Pudgy One.” Even though the baby fat fell away years ago, Meg still sees herself with chipmunk cheeks and short, stubby legs. Her family still calls her “Pudge.” Her boyfriend tries to reassure her just how beautiful she is, but she compares herself to Mandy, who was blessed with 3 extra inches of leg than she.
Do you know Meg’s pain? Are you in need of relationship problem advice? Do you feel you are just not good enough?
- You have played the victim long enough!
It does not matter where you are in your life. You may be overweight, depressed, feeling unworthy, or guilty for not living up to others’ expectations. You do not have to feel this way any more.
- Do not give others the power
It’s so easy to allow others to hurt you when you aren’t remembering where the power lies. It lies within you. No one has the power to hurt you any more. They cannot humiliate you any longer because you will not let what they say affect you from here on out. One of my favorite lines from the movie “Labyrinth” is near the end when Sarah realizes something so powerful. She says to the Goblin King, “You have no power over me!”
Gain your power back! Source loves you unconditionally and you are worthy of living your life exactly the way you want.
- Make yourself happy because that’s all that really matters
Life is joy and fun and love and freedom. It is not about following the status quo. It is not about impressing others or living up to another’s standards.
As I write to you, my heart becomes warm and I smile, seeing you happy and free. I am so excited for you to begin living for yourself today!
If you are ready to take control of your life and realize you ARE good enough, then I encourage you to read my new book, Have A Love Affair… With Yourself: A Simple Guide For The Everyday Woman To Embrace Her Body, Mind and Spirit.
Much love, peace and blessings to you,
