The best antidote to a label, title, you are not comfortable with, is to consistently celebrate the real you. Know yourself, love yourself and be kind to yourself.
When you go to bed and when you wake up, remind yourself how much you care for and love the person, the individual, you are.Not in terms of how much you do for others but, in terms of what you do for yourself.
In other words, you could say “I love myself and I am grateful that I give myself 30 minutes a day. A time that is just for myself, when I nourish and look after myself.”
Self-talk that would confirm the label which may not be in your best interest could include “Caring for and about my family is the most important thing in my life. Even more important than life itself. Putting the welfare of the family before my own is what a mother does. I am a good and faithful wife, mother, daughter and granddaughter. I am okay never speaking my truth for the good of the family.”
This equates to … I am not important.
Over time how do you think this plays on your psyche?
If you do not believe that you are important or worth your own love; how do think others will treat you? Most likely they treat you just as you treat yourself with indifference and neglect.
Always love yourself and shine brightly for others.
Strive to be a beacon of hope, a lighthouse, for others, not a doormat.
