A New Mantra

I am my own worst enemy.
I am the one who constantly puts myself down. I am the one who believes I cannot do something without making a mess of it.
You’d think, with this self knowledge, that I would know how to stop this nonsense, yes?
Habit is a strong thing. When one is in the habit of constantly putting oneself down, one has to first be aware of the habit, and then notice each and every instance of it. One has to learn a new mantra. “I can do this.” “I am not useless.” “I do not make a mess of things.” ” I have worth.”
Sadly, these are not things learned by many. Especially by many women.
But, as I said, *I* am my own worst enemy.
And I must stop this now.
I will stop this now.
I can do this.
