This weekend we are kicking off a brand new series entitled, Altar Ego.
Notice the word altar might be spelled differently that you are used to seeing. That is because this altar is like an altar of God.
This week we are dealing with overcoming feelings of inadequacy.
There are a few reasons that we struggle with inadequacies.
1. Unfair Criticism
Maybe someone said something to you or about you and that plays like a movie score in the background of your life. Every time a big opportunity comes up, the enemy or the “inner-me” plays that sound bite of defeat.
2. Unwise Comparisons
Often we compare others’ highlight reels to our bloopers reel. Like if you upload a picture of your Ramen noodle dinner, and then you see a picture of your friend pointing to her lobster dinner with her new wedding ring on the beach in Tahiti, and you are thinking, I hate my life.
Or you see a perfect family, and all of the kids are behaving, and you know that you just yelled at your kids for the 3rd time for eating their boogers, their socks don’t even match, and you are out in public.
We are comparing our blooper reels with their highlight reels.
