There is nothing worse than
a treacherous, backstabbing
double-talker running you
down. It is hard to believe it
when we have been treated
with such disloyalty.
Betrayal by those we trust
can send us boiling into a
panic of anxiety and pain.
Just imagine a close friend
or relative talking behind
your back and whispering
about your failures;
prognosticating your doom
and undermining your best
efforts to lift yourself up.
This bully is well informed
and knows all of your past
mistakes, and knows how to
use those mistakes against
you — a two-faced bully
with a fake smile, concealing
a tongue like a switch-blade
knife. Even worse, what do
you do when the traitor is a
very close relative; so
closely related, that in fact,
the betrayer — is you?
That’s right, you; the voice
in your head whispering
that, “you aren’t good
enough; you don’t deserve
it and you can’t!” Maybe the
self-inflicted battering is a
more subtle, “what will
people think, or I don’t
want to disappoint…”, or a
clever “helpful” bump to
just “try later, there’s
always tomorrow.” Then
there is the foulest
pummeling; a total beat-
down by oneself and to
oneself, “You’re fat. You’re
stupid. You’re a loser. I hate
you! I wish you were dead!”
Maybe you never considered
yourself a bully, a batterer
or an abuser before, but
maybe you are — to
yourself. The worst bullies
you will ever encounter in
your life are your own
thoughts. Being overly
critical of yourself is like
having a relentless,
inescapable bully who
follows you everywhere you
go and abuses you. The
worst part about this type
of bully is that you can’t get
rid of them, because it’s
you. You have to reach out
to your inner-abuser and
make peace. You can’t live
your life as your own worst
enemy! Go to a mirror and
look yourself in the eye, and
make peace with yourself.
Commit this day to putting
your self-hatred and
unreasonable doubts and
fears behind you once and
for all. You are your own
essential ally. Get right with
yourself. When that inner-
voice of doubt whispers
against you, have a firm but
sweet conversation with
yourself, and exert your
faith. Healing is a process
and could take some time,
but begin convincing
yourself of your worthiness
— no more abuse! Deep in
your heart, you know you
are good. Your heart knows
you are deserving. Your
heart knows you are worthy.
Your heart knows you are
capable. Speak kindly to and
of yourself. When the voices
of doubt start whispering,
turn-up the volume of faith
and listen to your heart. …read more
