The Gap Between Your Ideal Self VS. Your The Real Shelf

June 22, 2018 0 By April Kirkwood

Hi everyone:

By now I hope you are getting to know me, the real deeply flawed but ever present girl who most of the name is pretty happy.  If now, let me share with you what others ofter say, People always ask me, “April, how did  find yourself out of your drama?  How do you move on?  Find a smile in life’s issues?  I did it and I’m proud to say most days, not all, I’m more then Ok.  I’m pretty darn happy.

But after reading, Working My Way Back To Me, you will most undoubtedly see how much we probably have in common.  The message and why I write is quite simply this, “It is possible to move on without becoming a cynical bitter ****** and use what you’ve been through to make life better.

Quick Test:  Do any of these resonate with you?A person without a strong sense of identity tends to suffer from:

  • Anxiety
  • Low Self-Esteem
  • Addiction
  • Co-dependence
  • Feelings of emptiness or meaninglessness
  • Feelings of helplessness
  • Stunted dreams
  • Financial difficulties

If any of these happen to fit more then just once in a blue moon, you may be struggling with finding yourself.  Take a look at trying a few of these and rediscover your Magnificent Self.

Tips To Find True Self

  1.  Write down what everyone has told you about yourself, what they think is right, and what they think is wrong.
  2. Cross off those items in the list that you no longer buy into and circle the ones you still question.  There are no right or wrong answers and no rush.  You are free to return and change your answers.  You can an A just for showing up.
  3. Make a list of what you know you love…in terms of interests, passions, hobbies, and people. Make a commitment to only hang out with others that make you feel happy.
  4.  Write down what feels right to you.
  5. Now create a list of people, places, and things that feel right.

As you raise your energy raises from being in a positive place, watch what happens and it continues to repeat itself attracting more of the same. Changes will come and go with them.  Some people may not understand…walk away and let it go.  Each day your self-worth will grow with the new, original self you always are!
