Life can be scary at times. We each go through the fear of being rejected, failing and not being good enough. There can be pressure from friends, family or co-workers to do certain things; but most of all their is pressure from our-self to always do better ❤
Let’s talk about areas of fear, starting with rejection. There is not a single person who enjoys being rejected. Whether that be from a university that you had forever wanted to go to, a potential partner or a dream job that you had to complete many interviews for. Being rejected is hard. It crushes the soul very deeply, that if we are not careful it can chip away at our heart each time that we are rejected.
To ensure that your heart stays kind and loving you need to comfort yourself for a moment, accepting the rejection and understanding that better opportunities await. If you had been accepted into that university, you may have not discovered what you really wanted in life over the holidays. If that potential partner had wanted to date you, you may not of met your true soul mate. Same goes for the job, if you had got it in the first place, you may have realised that it did not suit you as it was boring.
Each of the paths we take have meaning (see paths of life post here). What we choose is meant to be, as we are right where we are suppose to be in the present moment. Experiencing rejection, not completing a task or feeling that we are not where we believe we should be in life, can make us feel like a failure. Even though it hurts and does not feel good at all. Failure is necessary to gain strength, grow into a better version of our-self and learn valuable lessons. We will learn with time that we are strong and can overcome any challenges that come our way 😀
The fear of not being good enough is sadly common among people. It can seem at times that individuals care more about what others think of them, than what they believe to be true about them-self. Such as knowing that you are a great dancer but you will not fully believe it, unless your friends say that you are a great at dancing. Instead of requiring validation from others, you need to be able to get it from yourself.
Those who think they are not good enough, are the ones who do not truly love themselves. Self-love equals confidence, happiness, belief and strength. A person who loves them-self is a person who knows their own mind, body and soul well, and believes they can do anything that they put their mind to. There is no need for validation from outside of their mind ❤
You may find it difficult to begin with but please give it a try. Each morning and night look in the mirror and say “I love you!”, three times. Look into your own eyes and mean it. Say it with great love and joy! It is nice to have love from others around you but it is also important for you to show yourself love. Loving yourself will lead to a confident you who will no longer second guess them-self.
Today on my YouTube channel I am sharing with you a colour pencil drawing of a blue elephant with wings, who is stepping on pieces of cake. I have the biggest sweet tooth so I enjoy drawing all things dessert. Animals are very close to my heart, so we get the best of both worlds in this lovely drawing. Elephants are smart and emotional beings. This cutie looks to be an angel! 🙂
I hope you enjoy the video. Thank you so much for reading and watching! Know that it is normal to experience fear. We just need to understand and accept the situation for what it is, then react in a positive way. Knowing that you can overcome any challenges you may face. You are strong. Have a happy day!
