In our society, women seem to be under constant scrutiny and devalued for their abilities. You compare yourself to the celebrity in the magazine, telling yourself you will never measure up to them. You lack motivation or are too scared to try out something since you believe you will fail. You have internalized the messages you have received from others, making you feel worthless, unimportant, and you struggle to find meaning in life. When someone gives you a compliment you refuse to accept it and believe that they were only being nice. As a female, you have conformed to the societal belief that women cannot perform at the same level as men. You limit yourself because you constantly think that you are not capable of better.
Lacking belief in oneself and living a restricted life can be draining, but you do not have to settle for this type of life. You are capable of more than what society and others tell you that you are capable of achieving. When you accept the challenge of stepping outside of the limited box others and you yourself put you in, you can learn your worth and abilities. Taking a leap of faith by believing in your capabilities will help you to grow and learn the negative beliefs you have are false.
Professionally, I will work with you to develop a stronger belief in yourself and your abilities. By understanding the constant negative talk you have about yourself and the external pressures you internalize, we can work together to create more supportive beliefs and develop a positive support system. I believe that by looking at what you already have to offer to yourself and the world, you can understand that you have been limiting yourself until now. Creating positive thoughts, experiences, and emotions can help you to fight off the negative pressures you might be experiencing in your environment. By working together to create new experiences you can participate in, you receive the chance to challenge yourself, be successful, and increase your belief in your worth and abilities.
If you are tired of feeling limited and struggle with understanding your own worth as a women, call me today at 402-325-0117 x13 to learn more and schedule an appointment, or book an appointment online!
