Top 10 Lies We Tell Ourselves

Written by Danica Worthy

“The worst lies are the lies we tell ourselves. We live in denial of what we do, even what we think. We do this because we’re afraid. We fear we will not find love, and when we find it we fear we’ll lose it. We fear that if we don’t have love we will be unhappy.” ~Bach

Lies are story that we tell ourselves when we are afraid or unwilling to face the truth. The world we live in puts  the sign of the beast on those they find telling white lies. In reality we all have created smoke screens and stories to protect ourselves from what we may deem harmful truths.

liesWhen it comes to uncovering our own bullshit we have to become aware of the thoughts and emotions that we are embracing and becoming painfully honest with ourselves no matter what your life’s picture will begin to look like.

Every day we uncover a new truth and lay to rest the lies that we believed and were told about ourselves. This is a lifelong process and we all have to take part in the search of a higher and truer self. The key to this process is acceptance and knowing that you are always safe. Make it a daily habit to look in the mirror and tell you “I accept me just the way that I am”

There have been times in my life when I lived in denial or rejected the things that didn’t turn out the exact way I envisioned them. What I realized is that all parts of my life whether good or bad are necessary and has to be acknowledged and or dealt with.

Here is the Top 10 Lies We Tell Ourselves. Do they sound familiar?

1. I have all the time in the world

Time is precious and should be respected. If you are committed to and ready to do something take the necessary actions and do it quickly because time keeps on ticking.

2. Failure is the end of me

Failure is not a bad thing it paves the way for you to leverage from your experience.

3. Everything has to be perfect

Perfectionism holds us back from reaching beyond limits and immobilizes you from getting your shit done.

4. If I had more of xyz everything will be fine

It is totally okay to ask for more and the key to this is to be grateful for what you have now and work with it.

5. They have it easier than me

Focus on your own story and do not compare. You never know how hard someone works to get what they have and keep it.

6. I know already

You don’t know it all and there is always room for learning no matter what title or position you hold. Stay real and stay open this world is far bigger than your expertise.

7. My past will come back and haunt me

You are human and have had human experiences, you will not always get it right. Grant yourself forgiveness and walk in grace. Your past is a gift that you can share with those whom may be experiencing the same types of things.

8. I am a victim

You may have been hurt or used and abused. You may even have suffered from sickness but always remember you are victorious no situation can hold you captive unless you let it. Take your power back today.

9. I am successful only if

Don’t limit what success means, seek clarity and define it. There is no single thing or person that can determine what success means to you but you.

10. I don’t have a choice I’m stuck here

You always have a choice, you don’t have to do anything.
