You are enough. I don’t know if you realize that or not. I think most people don’t. I think that’s why we believe we have to buy things to impress others, hoping to fill an emptiness inside. Why we have hoarded so many things, that renting storage units is a major industry. Why we all have something we feel we need to change about our appearance. And why a lot of people try to escape themselves through various vices.
World renowned speaker, author, and therapist Marisa Peer, has a technique where she suggests repeating to yourself the phrase, I am enough. Repeat it enough to yourself, and you’ll start to believe it.
Simply, if you believe that you’re enough, then there’s no need to have some inner emptiness to fill with things, distractions and vices.
If anything, it’s easy enough to just say to yourself when you’re alone with your thoughts. If all that’s all there is to it, then it’s certainly worth a shot to try and just repeat this simple yet lovely phrase, I am enough. And it’s definitely less expensive than renting a storage unit or struggling with some terrible addiction.
You are enough. I believe that. And I’d love for you to believe it too.
