Have any of you suffered from this? I’m pretty sure I can trace back a lot of my insecurities to feeling “ not smart enough” “forgetful” or being “unorganized”. I know my family doesn’t mean to but I know they don’t expect much of me because of these things. They have never stated that I am dumb or anything but I have heard a lot of “you can’t” in my life. I am 34 and have been on and off medicated as well as in regular therapy. I have lots of curiosity but I get very frustrated even in myself to remember things. Even finishing books…I have notebooks and half read books every where!
So I guess I’m wondering if any of you can relate and if so what have you done to grow more self acceptance and love?
