The other night at Life Group, the question was brought up...."Who is your worst enemy and Why?" I knew the answer immediately, but held my tongue, because I thought my answer would sound really stupid....or expected.
The other people in this group were talking about past bosses, co-workers, teachers, principals, when the answer floating in my head was..."ME". I couldn't think of anyone in my life, I have hated more than myself.
Someone else did finally bring up the answer I was holding back, and I felt better. I was glad I wasn't the only one who has really truly hated myself.
Who is YOUR worst enemy?
My worst enemy is filled with lies. She torments me constantly. She puts me down and tells me I am never going to be good enough. She fills me with doubts, distrust and fear....and while I know this is ALL lies, I find it hard to not find a small bit of truth in it.
I have been held back for so long by this woman. But I am working on letting go of her. Shutting her out and focusing on the truth.
