Monsters in Our Heads



Most of us have these voices in our heads, whispering obnoxious lies: you are not good enough, you are not skinny enough, you are not smart enough, you cannot do it, you don’t have what it takes, you are not…enough. These demons instill fear and worthlessness within us. They crowd out the affirmation and truth, roughly pushing them aside and setting up tents, pounding the stakes into the ground of our self-esteem. Inch by inch, they try to take control of the goodness that we are born with. These fire-breathing dragons need to be silenced. 

The whispered voices must be heard and embraced: You are capable, fear not, trust yourself, you can, you are a shining star, I made you perfect, you are more than enough…with Me. Can we claim these voices instead of the harsh, angry, critical ones? Can we stand on firm ground and know that we are enough?

God has made us for a purpose. God has given us all the unique gifts that are needed for our particular journey. Can you embrace all of who you are and share it joyfully with the world?



About sstyves

A Canadian prairie girl rooted in Ignatian spirituality, I seek God in all things. Whether I catch a glimpse of the Divine and delight in its presence in nature or in the beauty of an encounter with someone, I am ever so grateful that I can recognize the Creator. I greet each new day with hope and happiness, expecting blessings and miracles because I am created to praise, love and serve God. This blog is one way of realizing that through my writings, prayers, and photography. To God be the Glory!
