'It is dangerous not to know what waters you are swimming in as a fish.'
So I realised I was walking around with a low sense of self worth yesterday and as it dawned on me what the common denominator was in all the negative thoughts that came up: Partriarchic values, I was able to shake them quickly as I have traveled down this path before.
The patriarchic values I recognised are:
Goal-orientedness was making me feel bad about myself as I need a lot of rest recovering from corona and processing other things.
Competition with others was making me feel bad by comparing myself to others with patriarchic (goal-oriented) values in mind as I am a high sensitive person and this world is not set up for people like me. My qualities are generally not recognized as strengths, rather they are called weaknesses.
As I remember that those are not the values I chose to live by, I came back in to balance quickly.
Are you having patriarchic values that snuck their way back in to you at the moment? What are yours?
