[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Good Enoughness

Truth does not vacillate; it is always true ACIM (A Course in Miracles)

There are some of us who are recovered "I'm not good enough" addicts, and
some of us who are still recovering. As addicts we think not good enough,
feel not good enough,drink not good enough, eat not good enough and shoot
ourselves up with a daily does of not good enough.

Sometimes we expend great deal of time and energy chasing things and people
that are not good enough for us. Often, to get these not good enough
people, we will sleep with them, only to discover they are not worth the
time and energy we spent trying to get them.

When you are a not good enough addict, you can't do the right thing because
you are not good enough. However, you will beat yourself up because you are
not good enough to do what you need to do.

The truth is,as long as you believe you are not good enough, you will never
feel good enough. And as long as you are not good enough, you cannot, will
not, take responsibility for the truth of who you are.

Hey, just for the record, accept it, you are good enough to handle it!
