Questions for Reflection
Questions for Reflection
Answer the following reflection questions in the comment field below:
  • When have you told yourself that you’re “not enough”?
  • How might you view these situations in a more empowering light?
  • How might you bring more compassion to yourself when self-doubt and self-criticism arise?
  • Joanie says:

    Thinking about the time I thought I “wasn’t enough” at work, just to remind myself my work is fluid, I am benefited, my colleague is benefited and my team is benefited when we are sharing; we are learning, we are building. I don’t need to be “perfect”, I don’t need to take things personally. I will detach from this concept and remind myself I am worthy.

    • F Weiss says:

      Joanie, I feel the same way you do at work. But like you said, we don’t need to be perfect, actually nobody is perfect! I guess we all have to remember that. So glad I am not the only person who thought like you did. 🙂

  • Annabel Van Orshoven says:

    When It want to become a psychotherapist. Now I see that it’s a new field for me and that I have you give myself time to grow and learn. Failure is the mud, the Lotus flower is the practice. Pauzing, do the visualisation of visiting the old me, think of an owl.

  • Helena says:

    In social situations. I try to focus on what’s important. And try to stay true to myself.

  • Alfira says:

  • Kimberley Rose says:
