What’s a lie you tell yourself?

Bloganuary Day 23

Today’s prompt: What’s a lie you tell youself?

Hmmm…if I knew it was a lie, would I still be telling it to myself? I think it’s fair to say that just about every day I work on uncovering what lies I have been telling myself because it’s what we humans do to ourselves. I would like to believe as I write this though that there are none that I am consciously aware of at this time.

Now if you asked me what one of the worst and biggest lies I have ever told myself was, I would tell you that it was the lie that I was not worthy of all the good things that life has to offer all the time. I always assumed that if something good happened to me that it was by pure luck and not because I was worthy. I have an inkling of where that belief probably came from but it doesn’t matter anymore. What matters is that I am aware of it and I am actively working on unlearning that load of hogwash and learning and accepting how worthy I truly am of all the great and wonderful things that God has given me and that He still has planned for me.

What lie are you unlearning and what is the postive message you are replacing it with?

Every man takes the limits of his own field of vision for the limits of the world.

Arthur Schopenhauer
