As I was doing some coaching work on my past eating addiction the idea for this post was born. I was doing the work of looking at an event, this was one long event, from the past and re-writing my story about it. This practice allows you to take a negative story from your past and release it by telling the story in a way that empowers you.
If you haven’t done this work, let me tell you, it is life changing.
While doing this work my brain exploded a bit around pride, so let’s just talk about what pride is and how you can use it for or against, not only yourself, but others.
Let’s start with just two different types of pride, positive and negative pride, and then dig into how they not only affect you but others.
Positive pride is when we have confidence in ourselves, self respect. When we are proud of our achievements and the achievements of others.
I also had a bit of brain explosion as I went deeper into my reflection when I realized that the opposite of positive pride is to be ashamed of yourself or someone else.
Let me tell you a truth right now, if someone else is ashamed of you that means absolutely NOTHING about you and your worth. You are fully worthy, no matter what anyone else says or does to you.
Negative pride is when we have a false sense of superiority over others. It comes from a place of conceit and arrogance.
Note the word false.
This ultimately comes from lack of self confidence and self respect because we are insecure in ourselves. We are afraid of exposing ourself because of what others might think.
This kind of pride will keep us from seeking out help for ourself, or even our close loved ones. It makes us think about what others will think, keeping us from doing what is right for ourselves or for others who might need our support.
How can this affect others?
If you are asking this question then congratulations, you have been not just reading my content but doing the work of applying it.
Most people would believe that if we are proud or neglectful of others that it would affect them by causing them to either feel good or bad. If you have been reading my content you know that another person cannot make us feel a certain way, it is our own thoughts that create our own feelings, actions and results.
Here is where my mind exploded a bit.
As parents we have a responsibility of raising the next generation. As parents we come into this role with all sorts of our own hurts, habits and hang-ups which will influence how our little ones will start to make decisions for themselves.
This is why I am so on mission to help as many women as I can end their life of insecurity, worthlessness and self loathing.
When a woman gets out of her own way, starts loving herself, starts honoring herself, starts becoming proud of who she is and what she does, she passes that on to the next generation.
My true passion is children and ingraining in their developing brains that they are fully lovable, no matter what they do. My way of being able to do that right now is through the women who are influencing these beautiful minds.
If you change who you are today into the woman of possibility, what an impact you will have on the world.
This is why I do what I do.
