“No matter where we live on the planet or how difficult our situation seems to be, we have the ability to overcome and transcend our circumstances.”—LOUISE HAY
Life is a learning experience. Sometimes we make decisions true to us, and sometimes we don’t. It’s OK because we learn. We are not defined by the mistakes we make. Allow yourself to let go of your negative self-talk, and love yourself. When you do this, you will notice many powerful shifts inside of you, such as:
When we love ourselves in each situation, we learn to be the best version of ourselves. We become more compassionate towards ourselves, and we stop judging ourselves based on past decisions or actions. We learn from our mistakes and move on to the next moment. When we are compassionate with ourselves and others, it’s easier to adapt to changes in our life and to bounce back from hardship faster.
By being your true self, moment after moment, makes you courageous and strong. When challenges or anxieties mount, you might feel the pressure, but you face them with grace because you learn that you can count on yourself—your true self—to do your best, whether you fail or succeed!
When we express our true self we become comfortable in our skin and a weight is lifted off our shoulders. Self-berating diminishes, and with time, we’re less worried about the future. We are comfortable in the present, and we no longer carry the past around with us. We pay attention to the present, and it brings us comfort to be here—no matter where we are.
You’ll notice that when you practice trusting your inner voice that your relationships with others will change. You’ll start surrounding yourself with people who help you or encourage you to be yourself. You will not spend so much time around people who drain your energy, and you’ll gravitate towards others who inspire the best in you.
5. We Get Our Needs Met
We, in turn, live a happy, fulfilling life. We get our needs met because we trust what we’re doing each day in each moment. We know that we deserve to be happy, and we have hope and the belief in the value of pursuing our dreams.
As my old friend Wayne Dyer once said, “You are always a valuable, worthwhile human being - not because anybody says so, not because you're successful, not because you make a lot of money - but because you decide to believe it and for no other reason.”
