Feeling bad about ourselves, thinking we’re no good compared to others, or being dissatisfied with who we are is something everyone deals with at some level, at some point.
It could be a general feeling of inferiority that stays with you day and night. Or it could the one-off kind that catches you off guard on a bad day when nothing seems to be going your way.
What easier way to get through bad times than to beat yourself up? Right? The thing is, feeling bad about yourself is guaranteed to make your spirits sink even lower. But just telling ourselves to start feeling good seldom works. Ask me how I know!
EFT is a powerful tool that not only raises your vibration, but also dissolves the negative lessons learned from conditioning and life experiences.
This EFT script is a good tap-along for general elevation of self-esteem too. You don’t need to be feeling like the lowliest person on earth to give it a shot.
It can also be used for a specific area of your life where you feel inferior compared to others, such as maybe your job, financial situation, your looks, quality of life, golf … Think about what makes you feel inferior, while tapping along.
EFT tapping set up
Even though I feel sad and inferior, I wish I could love and accept myself just as I am. I’m finding it hard to see anything to like in myself, but that’s okay.
Even though I hate to be this loser that I am, I wish I could discover all the good in me, instead of regularly questioning if I’m any good at all.
Even though I’m just not good enough, I’m open to being a little more compassionate and a little less critical of myself.
