The challenges that arise when trying to achieve dreams do not only come from outside themselves, but more often come from within. One of them is the emergence of feelings of unworthiness. Yes, feelings of unworthiness often haunt those who lack confidence.
Overconfidence is not good, as is lack of confidence. Well, do you currently feel unworthy and inferior when trying to achieve your dreams? Don’t worry, there are five important tips you can try. Let’s see!
1. Realize that feelings of unworthiness are present for a reason
Unworthy feelings are not uninvited guests who come for no apparent reason. Yes, that feeling of unworthiness might be present for a reason. What reason? Actually, you alone know the reason. It could be that the feeling of worth arises because there are bad experiences of the past that have not been resolved.
It’s just that, sometimes we refuse to understand the feelings that arise. Recognize and honestly admit the feeling of being unworthy so that you can understand what exactly the intention of its appearance is. After that, try to find a way to make peace with these feelings. Even though it might not be easy, you should still try it for your own good. Agree?
2. Stop talking bad things to yourself
Feelings of unworthiness will increasingly show themselves if you continue to ‘support’ and let it. Yes, all this time you might not realize that you have ‘supported’ the feeling of being unworthy. For example, by always talking bad things to yourself.
Bad things that you often talk about, especially if you believe strongly will have more potential to become reality in your life. Because, the bad things that we continue to believe in ourselves will be even greater and eventually disrupt the balance in ourselves. Including changing into thought patterns and actions that are not useful, which in turn will also hamper you when you are struggling to reach your dreams. So, don’t let your guard down!
