The reason why we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our behind the scenes with everyone else’s highlight reels.
Duff here. Yesterday I was considering Insecurity, with all its Ramifications. And I was thinking What it has taken to get Me where I am Today. I learned Manners. I made Friends. And I Avoided those who did not fit in My World. I Endeared myself to some, like Ashley, My groomer. (She picks Me up and Coos at me when I Arrive for My Hair Cut. Does your Beautician greet you Like that? I’ll bet not.) Now that’s really Living! But This Learning took Time and Effort. I am now a Fabulous Canine with a Wise Outlook of Life. I live unstuck.
To My Way of Thinking, the behind the scenes is What Counts. In My case, all of those Endeavors resulted One Particular Dog: Me. I don’t even Stop to Examine Myself in Contrast with Other Pooches. I may acknowledge them, or Not. I might even back off and give them First Dibs on Something Special. (The exception to that would be Nibbles and Treats. Hands Off, I say, for They are all Mine.) I Revel in Life, for I am Perfect as I am. At least, that’s what Mom says.
What about You? Are you Perusing the Behind the Scenes pictures, feeling less than adequate When you Think about the Contrast with other’s Highlight Reels? I say: Nonsense! Flush that Old Tape and Celebrate your own Good Self. You too have developed many Skills and Qualities throughout the years. LetThem Shine. I do, and I even Get Extra Treats. You might too. Live unstuck. #unstuckliving#confidence
