We all feel it.


We ALL share the common belief that we don’t feel good enough.  
We don’t believe or feel we are worthy or deserving.  
We don’t love ourselves, let alone like ourselves. 
We feel that deep down inside we are broken, lost and alone, or there is something wrong with us that needs to be “fixed.”
We crave deep heartfelt connection with others but are terrified of truly opening up and being hurt. 
We worry that no one understands us. 
At times we hardly understand ourselves.

We want to be real but struggle to find the courage. 
So we pretend, we fake it, we hide the real us and hope that no one will notice. 

We feel an overwhelming sense of guilt and shame. 
Deep down, we feel sad and angry, and
sometimes we even feel that we are bad or wrong for feeling this way.

And you know what. 
I know at times you feel this. 
The stranger walking past you in the street feels this. 
The guy serving coffee behind the counter feels this. 
We are all feeling it. 
All of us.  
Me, included. 

Feeling this way at times is normal. 
You are normal. 
Your worry, fears and doubts are just as common and normal as the next persons. 

And that’s a comfort itself. 
That we are all feeling as insecure, scared and worried as the next person. 

So, you don’t have to be so hard on yourself for feeling this way. 
You can show yourself a little compassion. 
You can show yourself a little love. 
You can be sensitive to your softer side. 
Give your inner-self a gentle hug. 
Know that you’re ok, and that I am here for you.
