I operate best when my confidence is high and my ego is low. do you ever think about the difference between these things? i think it’s really easy to get the two confused.
confidence is grounded in an inner knowing of self-worth, my worthiness of taking up space. it comes from the inside and it helps me feel full. ego is an externalized boastfulness that’s used (often subconsciously) to diminish others as a way of trying to feel full — when, in reality, ego empties me and leaves me totally dependent on external validation, things outside my control.
do you operate from a place of confidence or ego? i’ll be utterly honest and say that it has been a journey for me to unpack my ego and learn to move from a place of confidence and love. and some days test me far more than others. on those days, i try to remember to give myself an extra reminder. this morning, those words came to me. “i operate best when my confidence is high and my ego is low.”
p.s. i can’t stress enough that the journey toward confidence is a rocky one, a slow one. please don’t be h*****n your sweet soul as you make your way along this journey.
