You can likely fill in your own answer of negativity -- the thing you tell yourself -- even though you probably know, deep down, that it is not true.
Why do we keep letting ourselves be less that who we are? Why is it easier to fall into bad habits about our worth? We can blame media, models, society, but I think we also have to blame ourselves because we have become comfortable with thinking that we are less.
Ashley created Overcome the Lie, a social media campaign that aims to help women break free from the lies and believe the truth about their worth.
Not only do I want to promote Overcome the Lie, I want to share the lie that I fall victim to all the time.
My lie? That what I do is not enough. That I need to do more. My house needs to be cleaner, my job needs to be better, I should get up earlier, I need to exercise more, I should bake cookies for that friend...fill in the blank...
I know that I am not alone in this. In fact, that's another lie I'm tempted to believe. I'm tempted to think that no one else feels inadequate, no one else feels like a failure, but in reality, conversations with other women tells me that we all have days, moments, months, years, where we feel like failures.
My answer to all this is relatively simple. We need to change our thought process. We need to look to God, who tells us our worth, who says we are incredibly loved. We need to look to each other and encourage each other that we are not the only ones that feel like what we do is not enough. And we need to go easy on ourselves... and teach ourselves to know we are good enough.
