The Fear Of Not Being Good Enough

The Fear Of Not Being Good Enough

We’ve all been there at some point right, we have taken the plunge into something brand new and we get scared of not being good enough, or maybe there is something that causes us to feel so insecure that we feel like we will never be good enough. I still have moments during the day where I worry that my blog will never be good enough, or that I’m not a good enough wife to Paul and it is the worst feeling in the world. Sometimes I end up sitting there at night wondering if I will ever be good enough for him? Would I be good enough for the world?

The honest answer to that question? Of course I am. We all have those times where we feel like we will never be good enough but those voices in your head are completely and utterly wrong in every way. There are some parts of me that feel like I don’t deserve to be happy, that I don’t deserve these good things that are happening because I feel like I will never be good enough and that is something that sometimes I just cannot get out of my head.

When I look around, especially in the blogging world there are so many incredibly talented bloggers who are just so amazing, and me being the silly person that I am, I just end up scrutinising my work and just putting myself down. I end up thinking that my photography isn’t good enough, I don’t write enough, I don’t connect with people, but sometimes you just need someone to turn around and say STOP.

Stop thinking that you’re not good enough, stop thinking that what you do isn’t good enough, you’re successful, talented, lovely and perfect in every way possible.

No one should ever feel like they’re not good enough.

    I can totally relate to this. It’s so easy to compare yourself to others in the blogging world. But I’ve learned that everyone brings something different and we are all awesome! I worry my blog isn’t going to be good enough to turn into a business, but it only motivates me to work hard and do my best. Great post lovely!

    Amie, course you are good enough! You are a kind, wonderful, beautiful woman and I can’t thank you enough for being the person you are when we chat! And of course your blog is good enough and chances are, you are a wonderful wife too! Stay positive, ignore the negativity xxx

    I am terrible for thinking I’m not good enough at everything! I think it’s so easy to compare yourself to everyone else and to think you’re not doing as well as everyone else, but we need to focus on ourselves rather than what everyone else is doing x
