It’s so easy to feel sub-par and compare yourself to other people. Realizing this helps a lot. Great post!

Beautifully written Marthe.
I tell people that I’ve finally grown in to my skin – finally accepted and come to love me, for me.
It really is a wonderful place to be, and although there are days when the old fears, emotions and mind games creep through, generally I deal.

I’m off to share this post. You’ve touched me this morning – thank you.

Yes! I have been really into personal development lately and the funny thing is that sometimes it DOES make me feel worse about myself. As someone who was raised very religious I definitely struggle with good vs bad. Hopefully this post will sink in a little for me. I’m going to check out that book, thanks!

“There is nothing wrong with me.”

Wow. Very powerful. And an interesting concept. My whole life over the past year or so has been about personal development. But does the whole concept of developing the self imply that our natural self may not be good enough..?

Actually, now that I’m pondering it, I guess my quest has really been about getting back to my true self. Blocking out the noise and dulling the distractions so I can listen to my inner self. Being vulnerable and staying true to who I am has been on my mind A LOT lately. I suppose the quote you shared backs that up after all.
