9 times out of 10, we find ourselves saying these words to other people as a joke. Usually they’ve done something silly and we want to laugh but don’t want to laugh at the same time and so we say, “There’s something wrong with you…”
That tenth time is when we’re hurt or angry and the words rip out of us with all the loathing we can muster: “There’s something wrong with you!”
What about to ourselves, though? How often have you said those words to yourself? And I don’t know about you, but never once have I thought those words about myself with a joking tone.
When have you found yourself thinking those words at yourself?
- When you didn’t get the job
- When you failed a test (or even got a B)
- When you got dumped
- When you dumped someone else and everyone turns on you
- When you find out you like something different
- When you don’t feel how everyone else seems to
I could list a billion and fifteen different scenarios where we might say to ourselves, “There’s something wrong with you…”
See, when someone says it as a joke to us, we laugh along, but I know I can’t be alone in holding onto those words and wondering if maybe they’re right. When we say it as a joke to others, I’m sure the other person holds onto those words as well.
I’m here to tell you: there is nothing wrong with you!
- You didn’t get the job – obviously there is something different out there for you
- You got dumped – he/she wasn’t worth you anyway
- You dumped someone – you’ll find someone better who cherishes you
There’s always a reason for these negative things. Yes, sometimes there is something you can work on internally to be better prepared for the future, but that doesn’t mean there’s something wrong with you. It just means that maybe you weren’t ready yet!
Watch what you say. And stop hating on yourself. You deserve more. You deserve better.
