This weekend I was reading Huffpost GPS for the Soul. It has valuable messages. One of the articles talked about the 3 negative thoughts that we all have at some time. The first was, “I’m not___enough.” Each person can substitute their own words. Their suggestions certainly mirror the positive self-talk that builds EI. If you allow this thought to control your day, actions, feelings of worth, a downward spiral is likely. And then we have children learning to complain/feel as you do. Let’s stop the generational passing on of the I’m not enough thought. All of us are enough with different talents/capabilities/needs. Our children deserve to know this!
Below is the wikipedia definition of bullying.
Bullying is the use of force, threat, or coercion to abuse, intimidate, or aggressively impose domination over others. The behavior is often repeated and habitual.
It doesn’t sound like you do this do yourself. But we do. This is where it begins for the I’m not enough thought causes an imbalance in our emotional well being. That energy has to go somewhere.
Tomorrow the #2 thought we all have.
Thanks for visiting my Stop Bullying Blog. Share your comments and feelings with me of how that thought created unpleasantness in your life.
Talk to you soon, Karen
