PasadenaSue This is the year I face my fears and love myself!
I got through yesterday and only told the truth. It was a good feeling to know that I can do this, (I should do this), and I even had a firm, yet polite discussion with a gal who didn’t seem to understand that she wasn’t the center of the world.
I will keep track of how things go for the week because this isn’t a one time deal. I want to be aware of when I am telling lies to see why I am doing it.
My email lesson for the day was: if the way you ‘see’ a situation doesn’t empower you, or teach you something, you need to look for a new meaning because you have the wrong (negative) one.
This lesson is a difficult one for me to understand. It is going on the premise that if something makes you feel bad, then part of you believes that you are bad in that area. You must find that part and replace it with you are good to move forward.
If I understand this, then when someone criticizes my work and I get mad, then part of me believes that my work is bad and I need to replace that with the understanding that I know my work is good, and move on.
