“What’s wrong with me?” Last week we took a serious look at this question and, today, we will discover the third component while peering deeper into the question. Additionally, we will discover a second, even more profound question, that we must be asking ourselves. Listen in today for a deeper look at the old question and discover the new question we must all be asking ourselves!

3 Areas You May Find Yourself Stuck
1. Patterns Repeated
- Unhealthy patterns you tend to repeat and that need to be challenge
2. Desire to be Loved and Respected
- The ‘What’s wrong with me?’ inquiry can occur as a response to not being invited to a party, being dismissed by someone, or having a comment you made that is dropped/ignored/not responded to and having the concurrent feelings of rejection and disrespect that follow.
3. The Comparison Game –
- Ask yourself, are you comparing yourself to people around you? What do you hope to gain by doing so?
- Making comparisons is a dangerous game.
- If you were to use comparison for good, it would look more like celebrating your sisters where they are in life and celebrating their successes.
- Another way to use comparison for good is to compare yourself to yourself. You are changing very day, but can you say you are changing for the better?
***If it is easier to name what is wrong with you, then for you it is important to begin naming and noticing ‘What is RIGHT with you’- your gifts, your skills, your successes, your talents, your character.***
