On the flip side, if someone shares that they believe they are awesome, it's pride, or bragging. And why can't we be wonderful? Why can't we think we are great, that we are awesome at listening, or painting, or reading or whatever. Why can't we share joy?
It's okay to feel not so great about yourself. It's part of the journey of discovering who we are. But accept that you have weaknesses. Accept that people are better than you. Stop being jealous and stop wanting more. Be you. Accept yourself with all the imperfections and accept the beautiful and amazing parts of you. Don't hide them-share them. We need people to share good things and we need to stop being angry at other people for what they share. If we judge others for what they share, we suddenly say we don't like the sharing process. Share everything. Accept every part of you and soon your drive for "perfection" will go away.
I have felt this as I have learned to accept myself and to say out loud that I really am wonderful. Yes, I have things to work on but as I have come to accept every part of who I am and who I am becoming, I have stopped thinking so much about myself. I have had more drive to serve, to help, and to just enjoy who I am right now. I'm not so hung up about who I want to be or who the world thinks I should be. I'm learning to love myself and love that there are parts of me that are weak but there are so many more parts of me that are strong.
Share good things about yourself, share happiness and joy. Don't give in to the negativity in your head. Silence it by saying that you are wonderful. If you don't believe it yet, keep saying it and someday you may wake up thinking that you are wonderful. You actually are wonderful. So am I.
