I realize not everyone lacks self-love, however, when I coach a client — and they feel stuck and unmotivated — sometimes there is something internal blocking them from moving forward. One possible reason I have found — for their struggle to move forward — is low self-love.
Individuals with low self-love tend to:
1 Criticize everything they do.
2 Never recognize anything good that they do.
3 Always feel what they do is not enough.
4 Think what they do is always less/worse than what others do.
5 Belittle who they are to make others look better.
6 Will not take responsibility for their life.
7 Feel guilty about everything for no reason.
8 Place harsh judgement on who they are as a person.
9 Say “I can’t” when trying something new.
10 Unable to speak up when they need to because they want to be liked.
Here's how to tackle this challenge:
First, realize that it's happening. Self-awareness is the path to change. Next, when it does happen, immediately say to yourself, "ERASE". Meaning, you consciously interrupt your thought. Next, I recommend you increase your self-love by doing the exact opposite of everything on this list.
I realize it's easier said than done, but, if you can do that, your life will move forward and positive change can happen.
If you need anything, just let me know. I'm always here to help.
