The good qualities of the people we admire, or respect, are very easy for us to see and acknowledge.
But, it can be much harder for us to see and acknowledge the good qualities in ourselves.
It seems to be much easier to find qualities to feel bad about rather than aspects of ourselves to feel good about.
Our inbuilt tendency to dwell on the negative means that what we think of as the 'bad' pieces of the mosaic of our personality get far more attention than the 'good' parts.
It gets even harder if our early experiences led us to believe that to acknowledge the good in ourselves was a sign of unwarranted pride or big headedness. This kind of early life training makes it even harder for us to acknowledge what is good in ourselves, even it is the same quality that we admire so much in others.
In this month's EFT Café, Andy Hunt will demonstrate how use tapping to achieve a realistic acknowledgement and appreciation of the good in ourselves without becoming a narcissist or a raving egomaniac.
The EFT Cafe is on Wednesday 10th September, 2014 from 7pm to 9pm and costs £10
