The Bully Inside My Head



The truth is, you are not what you do, and you're not a failure if you don't accomplish everything on your to-do list. Tell the bully in your head to go take a hike!

Sometimes I feel like I have a bully inside my head!

There are times when my self-critical thoughts start badgering me, and it’s like I have my own private bully! He always shows up when I have too much to do, and it looks like there is no way I can do it all. Or when I get tired and discouraged, he’ll start bullying me.

The badgering isn’t audible but I do hear it, and if I’m not careful I believe it. I believe an accusing lie that says, “I am what I do, and if fail, then that’s who I am.”

But I don’t hear it when I succeed, and it would be a lie if I did.

The truth is, I am not what I do. I’m not a success if I get it all done. I’m not a failure when I don’t!  And neither are you!
