putting yourself down

Sunday, June 30, 2013

yep I am one of those, who tend to think badly of themselves. Like when I stand in front of a mirror I often think of myself as the fat & ugly cow....
Well this morning I was waering my running tights and getting ready for a run and I saw my stomach is getting smaller, hanging less over the waisband... Yeah!!!!
Here is one story how I surprised myself:
When I went to Nursing School I never thought I would manage and pass the final exams, I thought I am not good enough to get there. Well 3 years later I was one of the good scorers in the final exam. Not among the top, since on the written & oral exam I "only" had a B & a B+, but in the practicals I had an A! Who? Me? The one who is not good enough to become a Nurse?

Tehrefore I think, even now when I think I can not pass the PMP exam, I will still succeed. So let's focus and keep saying "Yes I can"

    Why on earth are you so nasty to STEPH! She is my friend and I will not tolerate it!!

    Would you EVER think that of somebody else? Then why yourself?

    We have to learn to love our bodies and ourselves before we can get off this weight yo yo roller coaster.

    (Some scientists think that auto immune disease is fuelled by negative self talk and self hatred. Why risk that?)

    So tell yourself each day, I am an amazing caring person, who does amazing things. I can run, even when others would have stopped and taken a seat on the couch for keeps. I care deeply about people and things in my life. My employers are lucky to have me. I add great value to every project. I am beautiful, and strong and wise. In the unlikely event where I may fall short on ability, I can access the all sufficiency of Jesus in me.

    (I have never met you, but I can tell all that from here) Now open your eyes and see it for yourself.

    I can tell from your blog that you are starting to get glimpses of this truth.

    I think fixing this is your true journey

    Our thoughts are not necessarily truths.

    It is funny how I say the most appalling things to myself and I would never say those horrible and mean things to another woman.

    I looked at myself in the mirror this morning and have so much cellulite from years and years of binge eating that if I did not know otherwise, I would have thought it was a skin disease. I can not even trace a quarter of an inch without a bump, lump or ripple.

    I am glad you are kicking that thinking to the curb. emoticon

    I am SO guilty of doing the same thing with myself. Plus, it is especially difficult to simply accept a compliment. My first instinct is to say something (kind of like an excuse of why I don't deserve the compliment.) I am not trying to be irritating. It is just the first thing that comes out of my mouth. emoticon

    Oh, if we could only see ourselves the way our friends see us!

    Good job with the exams!!! emoticon
