When I picture life, I picture us all walking down our own winding path, pulling a wagon behind us. Each person’s wagon is filled with their self-belief and self-worth. Walking down the path of life, carrying our inner beliefs, we happily trundle along the path toward whatever our own goal is, but sometimes life isn’t so breezy.
It feels like it is so easy to get your wagon knocked over. You are there, trundling along with your wagon filled with nuggets of self-worth and self-esteem, walking purposefully towards your goals, and it can just take:
- One person with one perfectly timed comment to knock your self-esteem
- Someone you trust and respect to say something critical
- A negative thought you have about yourself not being good enough
- A comparative thought about yourself to other more successful people
…and your wagon gets tipped over.
You stand there looking at your self-esteem…
