Here’s something new I learnt today…the word “Atelophobia”.
Most, if not all of us, have at some point or other, suffered from the feeling of inadequacy. Why? Because some people like to put others down. And why do they do that? Because deep down, they hate their lives and think that by putting others down, they can feel better about themselves. That may be generalising things a little, obviously there are other underlying psychological factors behind the reasons why people make others feel inadequate, and some are affected more than others.
Well, guess what? Whatever the reason, whatever your personal story is, today is the day you stop letting them do that to you.
YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH, JUST AS YOU ARE.
But don’t let me be the one to tell you that. There are many others out there who, like you and me, have discovered or are discovering this secret for themselves. And have picked themselves up from off the floor, dusted themselves off, and now stand up stronger and taller than ever.
I’m not a doctor, or a scientist, or a Nobel Peace prizewinner, I am not “gainfully employed” in the traditional sense, I’m not a size zero, I’m not a Pulitzer prize winning writer, I’m not rich or famous. We can’t be all that, it’s just not possible. But guess what, that’s perfectly fine with me. I’m okay with that. I’m good enough for me.
