This Week’s Mantra…

 

  • I am good enough
  • I am capable
  • I am competent
  • I am lovable

Today I had to look in to my therapist’s eyes and repeat the aforementioned affirmations. I honestly didn’t think I could do it. She kept insisting I could and I kept insisting that I couldn’t. Tears streaming down my face, it felt like she was asking the impossible of me. To look this woman, whom I have mountains of respect for, in the eyes and tell her these things about myself, that I don’t even believe, felt like I was lying. The two I really struggled with were “I am good enough” and “I am lovable”. She assured me that these things are all true, even if I’m unable to believe it, at this time.

Developmental trauma is a Motherf*cker and I will overcome.
