I have to thank not only the universe but my friend Gregg Chapman for today's blog.
What does a didgeridoo healer and prince charming have to do with one another you might ask?
As I asked what to write today, I was drawn to the facebook photo compelation on the front of the Get a Life! website, and Gregg's facebook profile photo jumped out at me. Whilst I'm sure his lovely wife Gina would say he's a prince charming ( that's right isn't it Gina?) that's not the reason I thought about writing about prince charming today.
Many reasons many influence a persons feeling of self worth and self esteem. But its is important that if you recognise yourself ticking off the list above, that a change is required, that support is available and that ultimately you are a beautiful soul that possibly just needs to remember how to feel that.
Some alarming statistics from The Mental health foundation:
This may suggest that women are far more likely to seek advice or help if their low self- image, low self- esteem should it begin to affect their everyday life, in those cases that lead to depressive illness. Men on the other hand it would appear suffer in silence.
Now I'm not saying that all low self esteem leads to depression and mental illness but there are some very interesting findings in this Review of Self-Esteem Research
In both my therapy and coaching work, I find that the pressures of life in 2012 really are affecting self esteem and self worth. The push harder and longer, the striving to achieve, really is having a detrimental effect on how so many people see themselves.
Thankfully there are lots of great coaches, therapists, writers,trainers and all round caring, loving, jolly good folk, that are starting a ripple in this world to change that .Thanks to their collective work we can re-focus , re-group, and be helped to remember who we truly are ( magnificient beings and of course prince and princess charming's)
I urge you today to consider how you might keep raising the self-love vibe, and in turn the major love vibe of you, me and the collective whole.
Until next time,
make every juicy, gorgeous moment count,
