How Does One Get To This Point In Life?

For many years( and times) I have said,"I don't need enemies, I've got me." Not exactly a good thing to say about one's self. Recently I have had this weakness brought to the fore front of my mind. Several people have told me not to sell myself short and I need to give more credit to myself. So my question is HOW does one get to the point in life that they can say and believe what is printed below?

I dont know how we get to that point...but I am better at it, as I age. I say to myself, dont be so hard on yourself...yes I talk to myself:)

I know for me that has come with age! I also know that God made you perfect in His eyes. ((HUGS))

I have always been pretty good at it. I never feel badly about looking up to someone I admire. If I like a quality or characteristic I see in another person, I strive to make myself better, rather than compare myself, which tends to tear down a person's confidence. I celebrate those who achieve more than I do. Thus, I have no weaknesses. Some people are simply better than me, and I congratulate them.

I have found myself selling myself short and questioning my abilities...but those times are a great time to consider and know that the Lord has created each of us and through Him all things are possible and with Him we are able to shine the light of His love to those around us. When I keep that in mind, it is a great reminder for me of what I can do as best as possible for others and for Him...not by my abilities alone. I thank the Lord for what I am able to do (no matter what it may be...as simple as a smile or helping hand) and I also appreciate all the talents, skills and strengths of others.

Blessings & Aloha!
Thank you my friend for your lovely visit!

Just keep working at it, Karen. That's what we all have to do.

And take in the good things people say about you. Take.them.in.

Because they are true.

I agree with Sue.

I have the same problem sometimes. I truly envy those women who are content with themselves just the way they are. We have to remember that we are of divine worth. And we are enough. Sometimes hard to believe for me. Mimi

Karen I heard this on Oprah from Dr. Brene Brown, would you say to Katie Isabella, you are not good enough, you just don't do what good cats do? Of course not, so why do we talk to ourselves that way? I do it as well but have been getting better about telling myself when I am really good at things how great I am and how no one could have done a better job! And it only has taken me 70 years. Don't procrastinate, start today!
