How to Stop Feeling Unworthy and
Accept Your Own Greatness
from our Angel Messenger Creative Team
Each one of us is born with unlimited potential. We are destined for greatness. However, the problem is that very few of us allow the unlimited potential of our souls to get fully unleashed. We lead lives of silent desperation – constantly fighting the demons of self-doubt and unworthiness. The advent of social media has made this far worse. It’s getting harder and harder not to compare oneself with others based on the illusion that their life is perfect while ours is boring and marred with struggles.
First of all, let me tell you that there is nothing wrong with you just because you are feeling unworthy at the moment. Acceptance is the key if you want to change anything. Feelings of unworthiness cannot be removed by beating yourself up about the way you feel. It can be only counteracted and won over with all-encompassing self-love.
Unconditional self-love always begins with complete self-acceptance. Just like a mother doesn’t love her child for what he might or might not do for her. She just loves her child – completely and unconditionally despite all the flaws he or she might have. That’s the kind of love each one of us must have for ourselves. Unless you have mastered it, you will never be able to experience a truly loving relationship with another person.
Moreover, your relationship with others is a reflection of the relationship you have with yourself. If you feel that you don’t deserve anything good, then you would most likely end up attracting a partner who reinforces this belief by making you feel undeserving of anything good.
Self-healing is, hence, very important. After all, you can’t pour from an empty cup. Therefore, you must fill your cup first. No one else can make you feel better – you have to rescue yourself and be your own savior.
Practical Tips to Stop Feeling Unworthy
Limit Your Time on Social Media and Stop Comparing Yourself with Others
You have to understand that what people show you on social media or even in everyday life is not the actual truth of their life. What we see on the outside is only an illusion – a representation of how the person wants to be perceived. Challenges are a natural part of human life.
Each one of us has a very unique journey with many challenges along the way. Every single person born in this world has to overcome many difficulties in order to reach the maximum potential of his or her soul. Focusing on someone else’s journey, and worse still, believing that what they have is better than yours is a sure shot way of making yourself miserable. At the same time, you have to understand that there must be a lot of people who feel the same way about you. Given a chance, they would love to be you and have your life. I would suggest that you monitor your mind and stop yourself from falling down the rabbit hole of comparing yourself with others.
Every time you find yourself comparing yourself with someone else, bring your attention back to yourself and your own life. Acknowledge how unique your life really is and focus on being the best version of yourself. Remember, the sun doesn’t compare itself with the moon and vice versa. It would certainly help to limit your time on social media in order to break this cycle of negative self-comparison.
Everything you have experienced in your life has made you who you are. You might not think very highly of yourself at the moment but let me tell you that you are an absolutely amazing person. You are a child of the infinite Universe. You have been born for greatness. Even if you don’t feel this way right now, trust me, it’s possible to get to it.
The first step would be to appreciate yourself for who you are. Start by maintaining a journal where you write down three things you like about yourself every day. If you think there is nothing you like about yourself, I’d challenge you to look deeper within to find something. If it’s still difficult then ask someone who loves you what you like about yourself. Do this every day for at least 30 days. By the end of the month, you will have a journal that tells you everything that is amazing about you. Every time you are feeling low, go back to this journal and read about your good qualities. You don’t have to stop doing this practice after a month. Continue for as long as you want to (if not for life).
Acknowledge and Reward Yourself for Your Accomplishments
Look back at your life and think about all your accomplishments. Write them down in your journal along with a few lines of congratulations. Tell yourself why you admire yourself for each one of these accomplishments. Keep adding to the list every day. Acknowledge yourself for every little thing you do right. It could be something as simple as managing to eat healthy every day for three days in a row or something big like completing an important project at work.
Reward yourself frequently for your accomplishments by allowing yourself to do something you really enjoy. Always remember that whatever gets rewarded also gets repeated.
Schedule Self-Care Activities in Your Day
Make time to do something for your body, mind, and soul every day. Maintain a daily exercise, diet and relaxation routine. By doing this you are telling yourself that you are worthy of your time and attention. The more you take care of yourself, the better you will feel about yourself. Invest time, money, and effort into becoming the best version of yourself.
Monitor Your Self-Talk and Start Talking Kindly to Yourself
Don’t let that little voice inside your head tell you anything negative about yourself. Every time you find yourself getting lost in the labyrinth of negative self-talk, bring your mind back to the present. Remind yourself of everything you like about yourself. It would be helpful to read your journal at this point.
Over time, the critical and hateful voice will get replaced by a positive and loving one. It isn’t going to happen overnight but with every step in that direction, you are getting closer to it.
Practice these suggestions regularly and you will surely be able to bring about a monumental shift in your life. I want to remind you once again: You are amazing, wonderful, gorgeous, and incredible in the best way possible. You deserve the best!
