07 Jan Don’t wait to be happy til you like yourself
Don’t wait to be happy til you like yourself! Thanks to Annie Gray on Unsplash for this image of a woman and her mirror, wondering if it’s time to be happy. (The answer is yes.)
Don’t wait to be happy til you like yourself
- Don’t wait to be happy.
- Especially don’t wait to be happy until you like yourself.
Waiting is pointless. Your life needs you. Your calling needs you.
Myth #1: Liking Yourself is a Must
We’ve been told we must like ourselves. Bullshit! Let’s face it: some parts of us, we like. Some parts of us, we don’t like. It’s exhausting to have to like ourselves.
Liking yourself is just not that important.
Don’t worry about it. It’s a distraction.
Myth #2: Liking Yourself Makes You Happy
Happiness comes from within. But happiness doesn’t come from liking yourself.
We’ve been told liking ourselves is the path to happiness. Bullshit!
Waiting to be happy til we like ourselves makes something foolish an obstacle to something wise.
Being happy is wise. Worrying about liking yourself is foolish.
Myth #3: You Are Your Selves
Nope, you’re not the “good” parts of you, nor whatever you dislike about yourself.
You are the room in which they gather.
You have many selves inside you. Some you like. Some you don’t like.
None of them is you. They simply arise in you.
What’s important is to be at peace with them.
Is that what’s hard for you?
