WHAT ARE THE FEARS BEHIND BEATING OURSELVES UP
Beating yourself up seems like the most common way to tackle our problems but instead, it hinders your growth. Here are some reasons (aka fears) why you are beating yourself up.
Fear of not being enough.-over-attachment to affirmation and culturally defined success (Lack and fixed mindset!)
Fear of being discovered as defective.-speak about beauty, makeup, shame, etc, i just wasn't taught and wasn't built up in this way (Inadequacy and shame!)
Fear of not actually being motivated-what if you need the pressure and the inner-bully? lack of self-trust (Laziness!)
Fear of not being able to change.-I engaged in this behavior for years because I felt like I was letting God down, and then I felt overlooked by God because He wasn't healing me from my struggle in the way I wanted or expected; I was afraid I was broken and unable to change or be changed. (Guilt!)
