You are enough
It’s no wonder many women can feel overwhelmed, inadequate and even worthless when there are such high level of expectations on us. You put everyone else first, trying desperately to please everyone and often forget to please yourself.
Why is it that everything else comes first, irrespective of how important it really is to you, and you come last? Why is it that you worry if you’ll be enough and accepted if you show any sign of weakness?
It’s hard to fight back under the weight of expectations when you feel that you don’t deserve to have more, be more
It’s hard to fight back under the weight of such expectation when you feel that you don’t deserve to have more, be more. Why should YOU be different to everyone else and aren’t you selfish if you don’t put others first? Who are YOU to ask for more?
Before you get to burn out, dropping all those plates you’re spinning, having the smile you’ve painted on start to crack, consider the quote from Marianne Williamson:
You need to understand that you, YES YOU! are enough. That everything you are and all you have is enough. That might be uncomfortable for you to hear, even painful for some of you. But allow that to sit with you and ask yourself these three questions:
- Where in my body do I know that this is true?
- What would change if I allowed this to be true?
- What one step do I need to take towards making this true?
You have always been enough, the change you need to make is to believe it.
