Do You Suffer From “Not Good Enough-Itis?”

Do You Suffer From “Not Good Enough-Itis?”

Hello Friends,


Over the years, I’ve come across a condition that is SO common I decided to give it its own name. This condition is called “Not Good Enough-Itis.” Not Good Enough-Itis is rampant in our society, showing up everywhere. No matter what we do or how hard we try…we just aren’t good enough! We’re also not smart enough, pretty enough, old enough, young enough, fit enough, fat enough, skinny enough, successful enough, nor rich enough…we’re simply not enough!


Gerald Jampolsky, M.D., makes a great point when saying: “Most of us would avoid taking drugs that we know have detrimental side effects. Yet much of the time we are not very selective about the thoughts that we put in our minds ~ nor are aware of the toxic effects these thoughts can have on our bodies.”


When we understand that almost all of our programming (both negative and positive) was ingrained in us by the time we were three years old, we can begin to see where most of our beliefs stem from. If you grew up in a less than supportive, nurturing environment and often told you were wrong, stupid, bad or lazy, could have gotten better grades or done better at this or that, inside you still lives that hurt, little child who wanted nothing more than approval and acceptance. Today, the adult “you” is still desperately searching it out. Many turn to drugs and alcohol to medicate the hurt and pain but that only creates further disillusionment and self-disappointment.


It usually isn’t with malicious intent that a parent or other respected adult attempts to guide children in becoming their “best” by making comments they thought would be motivating. Unfortunately, how it is received and interpreted from the child’s perspective is that their “best” just doesn’t measure up and will never be good enough. How do we know what our “best” really is? After all, couldn’t we always do or be better? Is our “best” EVER attainable?? This creates the perfect storm in believing we’ll never be good enough, so why try?


Having clarity on where these misperceptions of self come from, you can DECIDE to stop rerunning those old tapes that keep you stuck in feeling doubt, self-rejection, and not good enough. Quieting the voice that tells you, “you aren’t enough” takes diligence, but quiet it you must if you wish to free yourself from it. With time, the voice becomes a whisper that eventually fades away…


When you can let go of the need for outside approval and neutralize this false identity with a healthy dose of forgiveness and self-compassion, you begin to heal. As you become gentler with yourself by thinking and saying loving, kind comments, self-approval will become easier for you. With time, this new identity will become engrained in you. Your confidence will build and loving and accepting yourself will become natural once again.


In truth, you already are more than “good enough” to have everything and be anything in your life you desire right now. There is no competition other than what you place on yourself. There is nothing for you to become or do, other than simply being beautiful, authentic YOU!


Blessings for a beautiful week!


Please Be Kind to You~

"I was struggling as a person with a lot of personal old and new issues, which I kept carrying with me over 30 years.  I did try different therapists and ways to overcome them, but it was not always 100% straight forward for me. A friend recommended Pamela to me, and even though we are in two different countries, I wanted to give it a shot because I really needed it.  From our first chat, I was able to let go of so many issues that I couldn't even believe it.  I thought it might come back, but it didn't. She has taught me the basic rules of life.  Today, I apply what I have learnt to my daily life and it just made me a better person for the simple reason that I am confident in my own skin with a fresh look on life.  She has been a blessing to me and I will treasure our relationship for life."

"For many decades, I harbored deep resentment to organized sports and all those who participated in them. It had hampered my social experiences with those situations and also did not feel comfortable around those who made sports their profession or passion.  Until I met Pamela, I did not realize that the hatred I felt was in retaliation for the relationship I had with my father. My father was an arm-chair sports fanatic. He would watch sports day and night and never, ever, played with his children or even conversed with us.  Once you showed me that, I was able to heal my relationship with sports and my father as well.  My father knew no better……I also consider him my greatest teacher.  I generally just do the opposite of whatever he would have done and that would be THE RIGHT THING to do.  Now, when I see sports, I no longer recoil in horror and anger.  They say anything to its extreme produces the opposite effect. So even though I am not an advocate of organized sports (or religion, etc), I no longer feel those ancient feelings of hatred again.


Thank you for helping me be FREE."

"I was introduced to Pamela by a good friend who found me struggling to find my way over a major rut in life. I was almost resigned to the fact I would never be able to live life without a certain amount of regret and sadness. Pamela patiently guided me over that rut, showed me how to deal with other obstacles I may come across in life, taught me forgiveness... and happiness found me.  I am ever so grateful for Pamela's guidance - it was life changing."

"I met Pamela in one of the most difficult times of my life, going trough a divorce and much more.  Working with Pamela was one of the biggest blessings and support at that time.  Her compassion, dedication and therapeutic methods helped me enormously to heal and recover.  She is so dedicated and so empowering.  She helped make me feel like myself again and explore my feelings and let the anger and fears go.  She helped renew my spirit in different ways.  I don’t have enough words to thank Pamela for the job we did together and how much she helped heal and be happy again!"
