Do you think about what you like about ourselves or what is good about you? Do you pay yourself compliments on your achievements or complement others on what they achieve, but wishing you had done more? We may do that with our children, with other people’s children, but probably reluctant to do it for ourselves.
Did your parents complement you? Did they acknowledge your achievements or the achievements of your siblings? Do you find it difficult now to give out compliments because you were never paid a compliment? Write down all the qualities you feel you have. Acknowledge your achievements.
Remember these issues aren’t about you. These issues are another family member’s inability to support you, to allow you to grow and become who you were supposed to become. You can do this.
