We all want to trust our instincts and follow our hearts, but I've found that there's just one place where we shouldn't be so quick to trust ourselves: when it comes to our perceptions of ourselves.
So many of us (myself included) judge ourselves so damn harshly. We forget our own awesomeness and fall into a hallucination in which we are faced this way and that with our flaws, with our imperfections, with our ultimate lack of worth.
It's just a spell. It's a common type of sleeping spell that gives us inaccurate nightmares that we believe are real. And we buy into the spell because it gives us an out. It gives us an excuse not to try, not to fail, and not to manifest the imperfections that we fear define us.
So what do we do about it?
