Why do so many of us have trouble accepting that we are good?
When we were growing up and did something that our parents perceived to be good, we would hear from them that we were good. It may also come with smiles, clapping, a pat on the back, hugs, etc. We learned that if we did something good, we would get positive reinforcement. This recognition started from a young age. When we first rolled, sat up, crawled, took our first steps, we probably heard “Good job!”.
On the other hand, when we did something bad, threw our food, dropped something on the floor and broke it, threw a temper tantrum, didn’t listen, we would hear that we were bad.
Here are two important things that we can take from this
When a baby is born, we don’t look at it as say what a bad person it is. We say how perfect they are. We are excited to see the gifts that they were given and to see the impacts they will have on the world.
It’s time to accept that you are a good person.
