I know that I underestimate how strong I am or how resilient I am, but I have no idea how to teach myself to believe in myself and have faith that I will get through something. Why is it is easier for me to teach someone else then to take my own advice?
I also struggle with not only loving myself, but allowing others to love me. I hate that I am like this, but I really don't know how to change this. Why do I feel that everyone else deserves to be cared for and loved, but when it comes to me I feel that for some reason I don't deserve any of it. I hate hating myself. If you were to look at my insides I am sure they would be all black and blue from all the horrible things I say and do to myself.
I have a masters degree in social work and for the life of me I can't figure out why I can't apply what I tell the clients everyday to myself.
