What I Learnt From Getting Hate Mail
This week I got my first ‘hate mail’. Not sure you can really call it hate but it certainly wasn’t a love letter! After emailing my list I got a response from one person that was nothing but rude.
The thing is, I was really surprised how it affected me. There was a time when something like that would have really upset me. I would have taken it personally, it probably would have reduced me to tears and could have had a real impact on me. This, however, didn’t, not one bit.
In fact, I am so proud of myself and how my self-esteem has grown, I really don’t care what anyone thinks of me.
This is something that has been a long time coming. Self-confidence and self- esteem are linked. I have always been fairly confident, but I looked for approval in others. I am now glad to say I no longer feel I need approval from anyone. If you like me, great, if you don’t that is OK and your choice.
I am passionate about my work; I share openly my story of my journey. I am totally transparent and if you have worked with me in any shape or form you will know I am congruent in all I do. I have high ethics and pride myself on honesty. I never claim to be perfect and I am certainly a work in progress. Yes, I have manifested lots of things, I have healed lots of issues but I have more to do, we all do.
Getting an email telling me I should be ashamed of myself, accusing me of being a fraud, I know is far from the truth. The second part of it is true; “lose some weight you fat ducking bitch”.
Yes, I am fat but what does that have to do with anyone else? You see, that comment would have crushed me some time back. I have had eating disorders since I was 8 years old, as I am 50 next year, that is a long time. I have done a lot of silly things with my eating and caused myself some real problems.
Thankfully 5 months ago I took on a Health Coach, as I knew I needed support in that area. I found a lovely one who really understands. 5 months in and I would have loved to say I have dropped a lot of weight, but that is just not true. What I have done is healed my relationship with food massively and that has been not an easy journey.
Now I am slowly starting to see the weight disappear. I don’t know what the outcome will be, I hope for my health I will shift a few stone. However, by acting, getting support and using Law of Attraction to work through my stuff I stand a better chance now than ever.
So, getting that email last week was a blessing as it showed me how far I have come. I am so proud of myself for doing this work. I knew what my weakness was and I sought help with it. I am just sending love to this person and I hope that they too can heal their wounds.
Did you know self-esteem and self-confidence are both linked to self-worth? Your self-worth is equal to your net worth. So, if you have low self-worth you are likely to struggle financially. If you have high self-worth you have a higher ability to attract more financial flow.
If you would like help with your self-worth or manifesting, I am offering a free session to anyone who wishes to consider working 1:1 with me on my Happiness Generator.
