You deserve to be spoken to kindly, just like you would speak to a friend.

Key Ideas

Find supportive people

Do not be afraid to decline invitations to events that pull you down. This will make room for the things in your life that makes you feel happy.

Find and/or make time for activities that will bring you joy.

What others appreciate about you

A kind word from someone we love and trust can go a long way. Their perspective can also help shed some light on some of our qualities we are unaware of.

Ask close friends or family what they appreciate about you. Save their words. Reread them when you need them.

Find your emotional triggers

Get curious about why you’re triggered. Your triggers could be words, actions, decisions or comments.

When you learn why you are triggered, you will understand yourself better and know what still needs to be healed.

Focus on kindness

Helping others helps you to see your own worth. 

Switch your focus from “What’s wrong with me?” to “How can I give back?” 

Practice gratitude

Appreciate the qualities that make you uniquely and beautifully you. 

Write down every day a few things in your journal that you appreciate about your soul-self that is unique to your last twenty-four hours.

Everyone has their own struggles

You are not alone in your struggles. You have more power than you realize.

Start conversations about boundaries with a disclaimer to set the stage for a compassionate, permissive discussion.

Share your resolution to set boundaries. Explain why it’s important to you and how you believe it will benefit you.

When others set boundaries

People who have trouble setting boundaries usually have trouble responding to boundaries set by others.

Instead of feeling dismissed, angry, or rejected when friends or lovers put limits on your interactions, respond with “I value your honesty” or “I appreciate you sharing that with me”—even if the boundary was difficult to hear.

Impostor syndrome

The impostor syndrome is the sense that our accomplishments are in some way underserved, no matter how consistent the evidence is to the contrary.

Impostor syndrome is an epidemic

There are several reasons why the impostor syndrome seems to have become an epidemic.

  • We have given the phenomenon a name.
  • Our preoccupation with it is the result of profound social change. Many people work in the service economy, where we create impressions rather than tangible items. 
  • Professional life today leaves us straining to redefine ourselves; we sometimes promise things we don't yet know how to do. 
  • We are no longer born into a role.
  • We can constantly compare our experiences to those of others online.
  • We can create an outward persona we know to be untrue.
The paradox of being an impostor

In order for you to believe in yourself, you need to convince someone else to believe in you. Once they believe in you, you feel more confident to believe in yourself.

When you're an impostor, you expect to be exposed at any time. You feel that at some point, someone might appear and see you for the fraud you think you are.

Rich people are not all obsessed with money. Some talk about money but they understand that their money does not equate to their inherent value. They don't act entitled to anything. They work hard for what they want.

Know your worth

Know what you are worth with or without money. You don't need money to be creative. Lacking resources can motivate you to think outside the box.

Witnessing value exchanges with affluent family friends can also benefit you.
