Getting To Be Good Enough
Not going to happen … not now … not ever.
The whole “good-enough/not-good-enough” stuff is based on a lie.
And if you are not conscious of it, it runs you.
It’s insidious and deep and sticky and in my experience never really “goes away”. The “not-good-enough” story is on a permanent loop in your ego-mind and it just keeps on playing. You get to choose whether you keep agreeing with it or not. You get to choose how to respond and you get to keep choosing.
The quest for “good enough” is really just a search for a feeling of being ok. A feeling of peace and security instead of feeling “not-good-enough” and the emotions that come with it … shame, hurt, anxious, etc. So you seek to feel “better”, usually by doing more and more in the hope you will get to be “good enough”.
Well, getting to be good enough is a myth.
Who you are is a magnificent, powerful, loveable creative being and has nothing to do with “good-enough” or “not-good-enough”. Those are both polar opposite judgements about whatever is happening. And as soon as you agree that the judgement about what’s happening is actually about you the creator, rather than about what you have created, down the rabbit hole of fear you go.
So next time the “not-good enough” stuff arises … stop … take a breath … remind yourself this is a feeling, not a fact … breathe …allow the feeling to move through you and release … and it will when you give up your “not-good enough” stuff.
If your goal in life is to become all that you are
give up the “not-good-enough” stuff
and realise yourself.
