So, Mr. CL sent me this Buzzfeed article about happy confessions. This one stood out:
Phaesporic must have a lot of chumps on her shrink sofa. This imperviousness to one’s one awesomeness is something I see in my CN mail every day.
Oh, I’m just homeschooling through a pandemic/single parenting/working a job through the most monumental trauma of my life and a cheater says I suck. I must suck.
It’s this kind of insidious gaslighting we do to ourselves. And sure, there’s usually a jerk in our lives devaluing us. But we take it on. Un-chumping is then a process of decolonizing your mind.
So, your Friday Challenge is to give yourself some credit.
What are you actually great at? What did you think you sucked at, that in fact, you do not suck at?
