You’re not pretty enough. Does that phrase sound familiar? For many of us, it’s a recurring echo in our minds each and every day – when we first wake up, when our hair just won’t fall right, when we can’t find a thing to wear, when we’re hanging out with friends, when we see a commercial of others looking so easy, breezy, beautiful, and again, and again and again. Maybe you’re not like me, and you don’t struggle with any of that at all. Maybe instead you can relate to one (or some) of these other lies we tell ourselves:
Hey, I know it’s been a while since we’ve talked. I just wanted to send a little note your way. No, I’m not writing this to complain about how you ruined my life or shattered all of my dreams. I once thought you did those things, but looking back now as a married woman, I realize the exact opposite is true. That’s why I’m here to say thank-you.
