We ALL have mental pictures of ourselves that we have been carrying around with us since the beginning of our awareness to ourselves. Our self-image tends to remain somewhat stable over time unless we take deliberate action to modify it as we see fit.
There is evidence that the image of ourselves is based on what we’ve learned from our environment, caregivers, and other people; such as, what other people have told us about ourselves and how they appeared to respond to us because of our behaviors.
But our sense of self is also based in part on our opinions, our unique interpretations of events, and especially the way we appraise both ourselves and the nature of our interactions with others and the environment.
There’s plenty of evidence that how we see ourselves does matter. How we view ourselves is important for many reasons but mostly because of its impacts our physical body health and overall psychological well-being.
If we are willing, to be honest with ourselves and look at the responses we get in life; we can take ownership of the law of attraction and adjust as we see fit.
What you seek is seeking you. It is a chant, call, and answer; the echoes of life.
The bottom line; don’t compare yourself to anyone, if you truly love who you are, then be who you are! We are all unique BEings offering up other ways of being and expressing our view of life. It is not about fitting in, but ‘feeling within’ the love for yourself.
My heart flows with love, unconditionally. Act as if everything you do is going to be reflected right back at you. Dolby Dharma
“If only you could sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person.”
– Fred Rogers
