Lies We Tell Ourselves
Are you currently in a tough situation, feeling emotionally exhausted to the point where you could drown in a pool of your own tears and literally fall asleep for a week? If so, you might be holding onto a few white lies deep in your mind that are preventing you from making positive changes in your life. Today, we’re here to shed light on these falsehoods and help you break free from their grasp.
Lie 1: “I’ll just be a burden”
If I speak up for myself, they will just get annoyed. This is one of the most common deceptions we weave when we hesitate to share our feelings with others. But is it really a lie?
The Truth: The truth is that non-toxic individuals won’t get annoyed when you express your thoughts and emotions. What you’re searching for is a friend who listens, not someone who tries to fix everything. In the long run, surrounding yourself with compassionate people who let you lean on them and say, “That’s awful, what’s your plan,” is crucial.
Lie 2: “No one will like me”
If I tell the truth about how I’m feeling, no one will like me. It’s a fear that often stems from our primal instincts, causing us to prioritize conformity over honesty.
The Truth: While your brain may trigger these fears, remember that there are individuals in your life who love you unconditionally. Find your confidante, that person who stands by you through thick and thin, and trust that their support is unwavering.
Your brain is lying to you and creating a fear of abandonment environment where you will say or do anything to ensure your safety in the herd.
Lie 3: “Everyone will fall apart if I’m not there”
I have to be there because everyone will fall apart if I’m not. Many of us carry the weight of the world on our shoulders, believing that our absence would lead to chaos.
The Truth: You are just as important as everyone else in your life. Recognize that self-care and self-preservation are not selfish acts. Your friends and family want happiness and joy for you as much as you want it for them.
