Abusive Relationship

I’m in an abusive relationship… with myself. It’s so bad that I had to tell somebody–maybe somebody can relate. The way I treat myself, the things I say to myself about myself when I look at me in the mirror. The words I call myself when I make a stupid mistake or even a simple one. I would never take that from another person. So I can’t understand why I have beat myself down internally for years! I mean who does that? I should be my best friend, my biggest cheerleader, the one person who always believes I can. Instead, I have become my biggest critic and frankly my biggest obstacle to success….

My thoughts derailed me today. I was up and ready to be productive, but I second guessed every great thought that I had. I mean, really great, insightful, innovative and inspired designs… ripped to shreds in my my mind before they ever had a chance to live….

Can you relate to this? Are you in an abusive relationship with yourself? Do you feel that you are standing in your own way? Well, if you like me have decided that it’s time for a change, please leave a comment. I’d love the opportunity to encourage you toward your greatness! Hey, maybe we can form a support group of progress through self-love. 🙂
