The Stories I Tell Myself

I hate playing for limitations. If I fight for my own limitations, I will only get them. My goal is to be limitless. And that takes fighting for. That takes courage and that takes effort. And that takes change. Conscious change.

I’m a huge fan of reframing negative beliefs. I find it to be empowering, and with enough repetition, you can reprogram your subconscious to WORK FOR YOU instead of against you/on autopilot.

The other day I took some time in the afternoon to tap into thoughts that were holding me back. I felt this bock in my chest and a narrowing of my eyebrows and just knew there was something richer in myself I was not seeing.

Take out journal and pen.

The limiting beliefs I tell myself, aka my negative stories:

  1. I’m no good at technology –> everything fails me and I have the worst luck.
  2. I look younger than my age; no one will take me seriously (as an employee, an employer, a boss, a lifestyle/spiritual health coach, a lover, a grown woman, etc)
  3. I’ll always be struggling with loneliness, food addiction and discipline.
  4. I’ll always be the lone sheep; I’ll always be different and never feel like I truly belong.

FALSE.

All of these lies felt heavy in my hand. I refuse to let them go. I did not want to leave my journal on these end thoughts. I was determined to leave on an uplifting note. After some brainstorming, I rewrote myself:

I choose to believe in these truths: (in respective to each number above)

I’m no good at technology –> everything fails me and I have the worst luck.

      • I’ve always figured out how to utilize tech. I’m no computer programmer, but I’m just as smart and resourceful as anyone. I PREFER to give the gift of an expert to practice their joy of fixing things; in this way it also helps me save time. I’ve always made my current tech situation work for me.  The frustrations I’ve encountered have been shared with the majority of the wold too!

I look younger than my age; no one will take me seriously (as an employee, an employer, a boss, a lifestyle/spiritual health coach, a lover, a grown woman, etc)

      • I do not emanate the energy of, nor behave like a child at all; everyone agrees that I’m an old soul. They feel my authentic, loving, grounded presence when they’re within my vicinity. They take me seriously. Beyond that, I’ve majored in acting--I KNOW how to command a room. I know how to morph into ANY kind of character I want.

💦 "I felt hot and sweaty and tired and nauseous all at once. I didn’t know how to stop the uncontrollable anxiety attacks I had and I would lay awake at night, hyperventilating. I couldn’t stand myself. • •• ••• I cried at the fact that underneath all my fat lay other problems, like that my life was a mess–there would be no career for me because my parents didn’t support my love for the creative arts (I didn’t want to be a doctor or lawyer). • •• ••• I felt like a burden to my mother by the way she always looked at me and yet I longed for her love, and despised by my father who look at me like I was garbage on the street. I could see the hate in their eyes and I couldn’t bear it. I cried because I felt that no one loved me, I cried because I felt lost, I cried because I hated who I had become. • •• ••• I cried because my dream art school wasn’t the utopia I had imagined. I didn’t have friends and I rarely got the spotlight, and that crushed me. And I cried because I felt fat. I cried because no one understood my feelings and I had no one to go to. I cried because, on top of it all, food was ruining my life, not helping me." 🌱 🌿🌿 🌱 Continued on "BINGE EATING STORY" link in my bio (linktr.ee/thefitty) 🌱 🌱 🌱 And I've risen above the darkest depths of binge and food addiction. And I found myself, lost myself, and rediscovered an even more expensive, beautiful version of myself throughout this journey… 👉 👉 👉 Leave a 💓 below if you have ever felt any of these feelings before. Send me a message–im here, love.

I’ll always be struggling with loneliness, food addiction and discipline.

      • No. I am better each and every single day. The universe certainly does not want this to be a life struggle for me; for she wants me to serve at my highest potential for the rest of the world; just as much as I want to. The atrocities I’ve gone through for so long are only there to open my heart and make me a better coach for all the women wanting to work with me. Because I’m someone who gets it. The Universe supports my sobriety.

I’ll always be the lone sheep; I’ll always be different and never feel like I truly belong.

      • I was born to be different. I’m tired of dying to fit in. People will try to want to fit into my vibe I am careful that only those that are worthy of my energy gets it.

In this way, I rewrite my stories about who I am. I have the power of my pen to rewrite any history.
