you’re not good enough.
On occasion, some may be correct.
But do not do their work for them.
Seek any job; ask anyone out; pursue any goal.
Don’t take it personally when they say “no” –
they may not be smart enough to say “yes”.”
I have always been very quick to “do their work for them”, and this mindset has lead to a lot of “not doing”. Not auditioning; not writing; not making myself heard.
Enough already! On the advice of a passage in a Louise Hay book, I took some quiet time and wrote down a list of all the things I’m good at. A little slow at first – why is this so hard? But then faster and faster, until my beautiful Cross fountain pen was fairly flying across the page!
I will keep this list in a safe place, to read through on days when “they” have got into my head – but I have a feeling, those days won’t be very often.
If you, Dearest Reader, are feeling ordinary; put down or put upon; take some time to do this exercise. Any exercise is good for the body – this one is good for your heart, your soul, and your very existence.
