On Friday I met two coaching clients and a key theme in both sessions was their perceptions of other people’s opinions and judgments.
Confidence and good self-esteem can be such a hard-won thing – particularly for women. We see in other people the things we don’t believe we measure up to, and our insecurities make us believe that they are judging us on what we see to be our inadequacies. Sometimes we put on masks to be the people that we think we ought to be.
We can unlearn all these unhelpful thought patterns, and learn to give ourselves the freedom not only to be who we really are, but to realise that we are all that we need to be.
You are enough – and not only that, you are loved, and you are amazing. Never forget that.
