“You deserve to be happy. You deserve to live a life that lights you up. Don’t ever forget that.” ~Coco Calla
You deserve good things!
You may think (or have previously thought) that you don’t deserve “good things” in your life. And, chances are, you came to believe this because of the narcissists (and other toxic people in your life) who told you that you weren’t good enough in so many different ways.
But thankfully, that’s not the truth. Those people were WRONG. In this video, I’ll explain why you DO deserve to have the things, people and situations you want in your life you want and how you can go about realizing that you are good enough.
Toxic relationships can make you feel like you don’t deserve anything good. Your parents, teachers, school bullies, friends and other people in your childhood may have made you feel this way with the way they treated you. The beliefs that these people taught us (about both ourselves and the world around us) can be deep-rooted and hard to let go – but with a little intention and focus, it’s entirely possible.
So how do you stop thinking this way?
Start with unconditional self-acceptance – accept yourself without judgment, flaws and all.
Things that can help you feel better about yourself and your life
- Try a daily gratitude practice – Think of 3 things you love about yourself and 10 things you’re grateful for every single day. And use Intentional vibration management
- Take care of your body. Don’t forget to include the following components of healing.
- Eat properly
- Volunteer to help other people
- Practice self-compassion
Each of these is covered in detail in this video. Plus a replay of the live Q&A at the end of the content.
