The Danger In Not ‘Feeling Enough’

“I’ve got your back,” we say, confirming we will stick through, thick and thin with the ones we love. We are so quick to create a support system for others, we will do anything and be anything for the ones in our lives we care about most.

It’s human nature for us to feel connected, we crave it – we are on a constant subconscious hunt to deepen the connection we have to those in our lives. We anchor in this connection by voicing our level of commitment we have to each other constantly.

This right here is a beautiful thing.

Studies have shown, the quality of our lives is reflective of the quality and depth of our relationships. When we create deep, enriched connections – that energy speculates into every area of our lives raising our levels of happiness.

An element we are quick to overlook is having the same amount of care with the connection we have with ourselves.

We are quick to dismiss the importance of inner connection and value external connection first – because it's more tangible and because there is an instant ‘return’ in our efforts of creating that connection.

This is where we are missing the point.

The amount we are able to connect with our souls and bodies is directly proportionate to the amount we are able to connect with others.

If we fundamentally decide to ruthlessly trust, love and have our own back, our capacity to provide that for others is equal.

This then is a conversation of self-acceptance. “Do you fundamentally accept yourself enough to develop a connection with yourself?”

Perhaps you’re in a state of denial – you shun parts of you, tuck them away and distract yourself with shiny objects that distance you from looking within.

One glance in the mirror can create a clusterfuck of negative dialogue in your mind – you suppress it, ignore it and move on.

This suppression of emotion manifests, it grows, makes itself known and has the potential to perpetuate behaviour that aims to numb the emotion.

AND, the most common ‘go to’ to numb this emotion? Food – today’s most acceptable (and widely used) drug.

When you overeat and say to yourself ‘why can’t I just eat like a normal person?’ let’s change this to ‘why can’t I just accept myself?'

You darling, are a child of a universe. The beauty you see in nature is the beauty that is within, there is no difference. Next time you connect with nature, notice it’s beauty – keep in mind, that beauty also resides in you.

Take a moment and let that sink in.

‘The beauty I see in nature is the beauty within me’

It’s simply a reflection of your inner beauty.

Let’s start here – for what we focus on expands. When you consciously feel into this, day after day – the connection with self is inevitable.

It’s time to have your own back – enough is enough – are you enough

    It is true that some people use food as a drug to numb emotions. 🙁 I believe that you are really making a change Sam in helping us with our fight with food and our bodies.

    Great find here! “The amount we are able to connect with our souls and bodies is directly proportionate to the amount we are able to connect with others.”

    Why are we quick to give care and connection to our loved ones, but when it comes to our own self we tend to overlook this. I agree with you Abigail the amount we are able to connect with our souls and bodies is directly proportionate to the amount we are able to connect with others

    The suppression of emotion manifests inside and grows, this leads us to use food to numb this feeling. Release that feeling, you are enough, you are beautiful. 🙂

    I absolutely agree to this : The beauty I see in nature is the beauty within me. I certainly believe that ourselves and the nature are in one. Once you fully embrace yourself that translates what your body can achieve.

    We sometimes forget ourselves in choosing others over us. With full disclosure, you had marvelously put everything into words. Thank you, Sam.

    “We are quick to dismiss the importance of inner connection and value external connection first ” – Guilty! I am so excited in forming a relationship with others because more often, I seek approval from them instead of thinking about myself first. From now on, I will exercise this wonderful habit of connecting to myself first before others.

    “If we fundamentally decide to ruthlessly trust, love and have our own back, our capacity to provide that for others is equal.” – Absolutely! The more we love & trust ourselves, the more we can be of 100% worthy to be of service to others. The reason being is because we already know how. We have already mastered it within ourselves.

    “The amount we are able to connect with our souls and bodies is directly proportionate to the amount we are able to connect with others.” – We need to able to connect with ourselves first before we could connect and be in a relationship with others. 🙂

    When we hide our feelings of discomfort and shame, we do not totally accept ourselves. This makes us vulnerable to provide ourselves with disservice. We should learn to accept all the truth about ourselves so that we can truly give the most wonderful love for ourselves.

    “It’s time to have your own back – enough is enough – are you enough” – Yes I am enough. This should be my daily mantra for me to be able to have positive vibes everyday.

    You need to make sure that you trust yourself so that you can accept all your imperfections. In that way, you will realize that you are and will always be enough. 🙂

    You always know deep down inside of you that you are always enough. You just don’t accept and show it. You need to dig deeper and tell yourself everyday that you are enough.
