We’re sociable but we can’t do parties.
We crave stimulation but can feel easily rattled.
We’re trusting but our brains are hardwired to make us cautious.
We’re adventurous but we may not want to travel.
We like nice things but can’t do a job not true to ourselves to make money to pay for our passions and desires.
We’re loving but if our needs aren’t met we are powerless to bring happiness to others.
We might be performers but are not happy in a room full of strangers performing on demand.
We know ourselves but can still struggle to find what we want or what we need.
We crave deep connection with others but might not be able to find a kindred spirit.
“Will my self esteem ever be complete?” I wondered today. After much soul searching I wonder if the answer is ‘”No.” Maybe I will always feel that I lack in some way but then perhaps completeness isn’t about having total self esteem as we see it, but just about being ourselves.
If we forget about having to feel good enough perhaps we will find that we already are!
