Reminders For Those Days When You Feel Like You’re Not Good Enough

Reminders For Those Days When You Feel Like You’re Not Good Enough

We’re all human – it’s something we tend to forget a lot of the time. We get so preoccupied with others’ opinions, and values that we often forget to think about ourselves.

The world can be a cruel place and you’re the only one who can get yourself through the tough times. On the other hand, you can be your own enemy as well.

The human mind is complex and we can’t understand everything we do and feel. This can make you view yourself as an outcast, someone who doesn’t belong.

We all have our good and bad days. The good ones are when we’re smiling, singing, dancing, and the world is a better place.

But then we get our bad days when we don’t feel like doing anything. Those days when you feel like you’re not good enough are the worst yet.

This horrible feeling can seem to appear out of the blue or it can be provoked by your previous experience. Each human is an individual, so not everyone’s going to be affected by these feelings the same.

The dreadful feeling can tug at your heart and weigh you down. However, you shouldn’t let this bother you because you and I know that you’re more than enough.

Our brain can sometimes work against us and certain thoughts can take over our minds. It’s important to not let this drag you down, and what’s even more important is to remember your worth.

1. It’s not your fault

If there’s something weighing you down, it’s easy to automatically assume it’s something you did. Something’s changed about the way you think of yourself but you can’t quite put your finger on it.

These feelings of not being good enough can trick you into believing it’s your fault you feel that way. It’s okay to have self-doubts, but it’s never okay to blame yourself for something you can’t change.

You’re probably under the impression that you could’ve done things differently. Well, that’s in the past now and it isn’t worth mulling over.

2. Choose a friend over an enemy

Whenever you feel like it’s the end of the world, you look for consolation. It’s always good to have someone by your side who you can confide in.

The most common mistake we make is to seek attention and support from others. There’s nothing wrong with doing that, it’s just that we forget who our real friend is.

I’m talking about yourself. You’re the person who knows all of the secrets. You’re the one who’s been through the ups and downs.

This is a friendly reminder to not beat yourself up. The only one who’s always by your side and who can help you out is yourself.

Instead of being your own enemy, make a wiser choice.

3. Don’t let anyone get into your head

Perhaps you don’t have a problem that stems from within. Maybe you’ve recently been under the influence of society or an individual.

This person is convincing you with their manipulative ways that you’re not good enough. This can be a sign you’re dealing with a narcissist, so it’s important to acknowledge it.

Don’t let their opinions take a hold of your life. Pay attention to what you really want and give yourself some credit. This can be tough, but once you realize you’re your own best friend, you’ll have the support you need.

4. It’s okay to feel sad

When you were a kid, perhaps you were told to stop being whiny and acting like a baby. This is probably the reason you believe you don’t deserve to feel sad.

All of these wrong beliefs you grew up with can largely impact the way you view yourself. You were told to “chin up” and to act as if nothing happened.

By doing this, you’re not allowing yourself to process your emotions. You’re only sweeping these negative feelings under the carpet. That won’t do you any good and it only spells disaster later on.

5. Stop comparing yourself to others

Maybe the reason you’re feeling this way is that your eyes are set on others and their achievements. Perhaps there’s someone who you admire and you’re trying to walk in their footsteps.

When you don’t succeed in it, you feel discouraged and like a failure. The problem here is you’re comparing yourself to them.

Every one of us is unique and does things differently. It’s okay having a role model, but you shouldn’t blame yourself for not being them.

If you set overly high expectations for yourself that you fail to meet, you’re only putting yourself in trouble. Take baby steps and you’ll eventually see progress being made.

6. Give yourself a break

At times, when your thoughts get the best of you, it’s good to take a little timeout. Try to stop worrying so much and just relax.

You can take some time off work and spend time with yourself. Start a new hobby, something you’ve wanted to do for a long time but never got the chance to.

Occupy your mind by hanging out with family members or close friends. Go on a mini-vacation or binge-watch your favorite series!
