My best me
At first, I couldn’t wrap my head around being my best me. When you explained the Greatest Expression of You process to me I thought it was hoaky. I even felt guilty thinking I could be the best me – almost as if it was sinful to think that I could be.
I had a lot of negative self-talk and constantly put myself down. I couldn’t imagine being any different. I had a lot of fear and anxiety and my life was miserable. I wasn’t happy in my job but didn’t think I could do better. Nights and weekends, I hid in my apartment. I wouldn’t go out with friends because I knew I wouldn’t fit it. I hadn’t been on a date in 4 years. When I went to church I would arrive late, sit in the back and be one of the first out the door.
I avoided eye contact and prayed that no one would talk to me because I knew that they wouldn’t like me. I was being everything buy my best me.
Addicted to negative self-talk
Several times, you pointed out to me that I was addicted to negative self-talk. At first, I didn’t understand what you meant by addicted, but it also rang true to me. Looking back, I can see that I felt the most alive when I amped up how I was “not good enough” and let that spin into anxiety.
It was the day after our second session I felt like something was missing. As I was getting ready for work, I realized that I wasn’t filled with negative thoughts. I was calm and felt at peace. I laugh now as I think about it, I almost had an anxiety attack because I didn’t feel anxious! I was shocked to fully realize that I was addicted to negative self-talk and anxiety!
I then remembered that you had me write the greatest expression of me. I wrote it and emailed it to you. Since I didn’t believe it I never posted it or even read it again. Realizing that this was a pivotal moment for me, I printed it out, taped it to the mirror and read it – “I live my life being the person God created me to be.”
My heart was filled with God’s love. Throughout the day anytime I had a negative thought or felt a twinge of anxiety I remembered God’s love.
Living my life
Now, 3 months later, I’m living my life being the person God created me to be. I start a new better job on Monday. Last night, I had a second date with a man I met at church.
I remind myself throughout the day to be my best me. I live my life being the person God created me to be. I’ve never been this happy. I feel confident, calm and at peace.
Thank you, Roger, for helping me to change my life.
