We are constantly being told that we aren't enough by society. That we aren't doing enough. That we aren't attractive enough. That we aren't helpful enough. That we aren't rich or powerful enough. That we aren't buying the right things, doing the right things, contributing the right things.
Many of us FEEL this deep, soul crushing sense of inadequacy that no matter WHAT we do, we can't shake.
We try to love ourselves. We try to accomplish more. We try to rest. We try to use mantras. We go on the spiritual retreats and do the 'inner work' - and still - we feel like we are coming up short. We try to tell ourselves we are enough, that we are doing enough, that we're producing enough - and yet we feel lack. We feel like we don't have enough. That we aren't living up to some phantom expectation. There's always MORE we 'should' be having/doing/being.
