amplif(i) Your Voice and Change Your Tune

For years, too many of us told ourselves things like “I am ugly, I am fat, I am stupid, I am depressed, I am hated, I am not good enough, I am a loser.”  Sometimes our thoughts even crossed beyond those words and we thought, “I am worthless, I am a failure, I hate myself, and I am better off dead.”

 

In those moments, what we were truly feeling and thinking was, “I am alone.”

 

If you’re feeling or thinking any of these things, it’s extremely important to understand that you’re not alone.  No matter what you’re going through, what you’ve done, or what has happened to you, there are other people out there who have gone through the same thing.  Not only have they gone through it, but they’ve survived it, overcome it, learned from it, and even used their experience to help others.

Sometimes when you’re in the middle of it, it’s hard to see yourself as anything but alone.  You feel awkward, afraid, and weird.  It can be frightening to speak up or to ask for help.  It takes courage to tell someone else what you’re feeling and struggling with.  But the moment you do, you‘re no longer alone.  You’re no longer trying to carry the weight by yourself.  Others can help you.  The healing can begin.  Things can change.  You can change.

 

And as you change, your thinking will change.  The same mind which once told you that you weren’t good enough will begin to tell you things like, “I am valuable, I am strong, I am beautiful, I am accepted, I am loved, and I am worthwhile.”  This time, however, your mind will be speaking the truth.
