Do you think you're not smart enough? Not pretty or handsome enough? Unworthy of happiness? Even without you saying it, people can sense the way you feel about yourself. If you feel badly about yourself and communicate or operate from a weakened state, people will assume this is the way you want to be treated. Often times, how people treat you is not conscious or purposeful; they are simply feeding off of the energy that you are emitting.
Remember the Golden Rule, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”? Try taking that mantra and personalizing it to ensure you get the treatment you deserve; Do unto YOU as you want others to do unto you. How do you want people to treat you? Be kind and forgiving to yourself. We are often our worst critics. If you can’t respect yourself, no one will respect you, nor can you demand respect from others.
Silence those negative thoughts and turn the volume up on the positive ones. You are perfect. If you don’t believe it, fake it until you make it. Write it down, repeat it, sing it, dance it. Do whatever you have to do to beat that message in your head. Once you believe it, everyone else will. Live LOYT!
