Should I Trust My Thoughts? #Selfblame #Selftalk #insecurity
I just shared how a former colleague proofread my professional resume. My inability to see my talents makes resume writing a challenge.
To my surprise, the returned edited resume was so overwhelming! My former co-worker, who has worked alongside of me during my good days and bad days, described my talents in such a positive way, sadly, I fail to see this version of myself.😞
Based on this recent experience, I must now ask myself, should I trust my assessment of myself?
Sadly, my self talk is negative. My self confidence lens is severely scratched from years of physical, emotional, and verbal abuse. #CPTSD dictates my thoughts, well into my adulthood. And most of all, those thoughts do NOT reflect the words my professional former co-worker described.😁
Realize this, our friends and colleagues might not see the negatives our minds convince us are paramount aspects of ourselves.❤️
