Strengthen Others

posted in: Inspiration 0

Think about how must stronger this planet would be if we used our words to build up, to strengthen, to bless others as Scripture calls us to do.

Words are the most powerful and dangerous of all weapons, they leave invisible scars and wounds that never heal, they cause hate, they cause wars, they cause people to never love themselves because of one word or line that someone told them as a child. For some reason we repeat those words in our heads over and over, making it become “our story”. Why?

What if instead we used the 1,000 compliments that people have said to us to adopt as “our story”? What if we chose to never tell ourselves any bad story in our heads. Ever.

Let’s say for example that as a child your grandmother said “Wow, you’re getting thick” as she is hugging you. And so the body consciousness begins…  So you put that “I’m Fat” story on replay in your head your whole life… So because of that “story” your reaction was, either you created an exercise routine and become heathy to prove them wrong or just gave up and became “fatter” to prove them right adding to and justifying the story saying “well that’s what they think of me anyways”. Either way you are reacting in resentment to the comment. Neither are the right choice.

What is “the story” you are telling yourself that is causing you to live a life of reaction and what resentful behaviors do you do because of them? You have it in your head right now, don’t be ashamed everyone has them.  Write it down on a piece of paper. Write down all the resentful behaviors that you do in your life because of it as well.

So lets change the story, let’s access the whole picture, by changing the story, it removes the resentment. 1st of all, I have never seen a kid on the planet that doesn’t go through some sort of an “awkward phase”. 2nd your grandmother was probably saying it in love, either by complimenting you on how much you have grown and your strength (people were scrawny and unhealthy in her day) or maybe she is or was “thick” at some point and knows how disheartening it feels and doesn’t  wish that on you because she cares about you. Maybe over your shoulder,  She was looking at your scrawny cousin, wanting them to thicken up, or your even thicker dad, wanting him to slim down. hehehe!

Do you see what I’m doing here?  It really doesn’t matter how you change it, just change it!  If someone said something out of concern or love for you, or hey, maybe you was having a bad day and just took it the wrong way! Realize that it was a misunderstanding, it releases all the pressure and resentment behind it. Change the memory/story in your head, and free your heart from resentment and pain.

I will mention that 95% of people who live with a resentment story in their heads, all have “some story” from childhood. They have heard thousands of compliments since then but that one “story” is what they hold to. So be very careful what you say to a child, for they are just trying to figure out who they are, make sure you tell them all the amazing things they are.

Build a child up, for everything you say to them is a brick in their foundation and every time you knock them down, you create a crack. ~A. Radford

Teach them how to treat themselves by how you treat them. Teach them to find their strengths, by complimenting their strengths. Teach them that weaknesses are ok and that they are not flaws but challenges or lessons that they need to learn to become a strength as long as they don’t give up. Teach them to never settle, to beat the odds, teach them that comparison is poison, but competition is healthy, to be as good of a loser as they are a winner & that their biggest competition is themselves.  That the best win is beating your own personal bests, to always strive to be a better person today than they were yesterday.  Teach them to dream, to love, to play, to grow, to never give up. Teach them to live in action, not reaction. The best teacher is example. Kids will do what you do, no matter what you say!

Children are born with the try, try again mentality.
It’s the world that teaches them to quit.

Hello beautiful souls. I'm Angielee, creator of BetterMeTribe. I'm a heart-first adventuring healer of souls. My calling is to heal the soul of the world by healing and filling one heart's cup at a time. I will teach you how to heal, fill, and overflow your own love's cup into the world, starting with the love cup inside of you. Healing and filling every area of your life so that you can overflow love into, onto, and all over others. A better world begins inside of each of us. And that is where BetterMeTribe Begins. I have had the privilege of unlocking and unblocking hearts, healing, and filling souls with the overflow method on stages big and small, in over 13 different countries on three different continents and 58 worldwide humanitarian aid mission trips. I have written eight books, three children's books that are launching soon, and this inspirational blog with over 900 heart healing posts with 50k Tribe members. I have been coaching teens and adults, one-on-one, families, groups, hosting, and speaking at events for over 20 years. But my life wasn't always like this. Through terrible traumas and a childhood that would make Stephen King have nightmares, I had to go through massive amounts of healing, forgiveness, and transformation myself. Overcoming those wounds has helped me to be able to be the best resource possible for helping others heal and use my own experiences and the experiences of many others to help as many as possible. There isn't much that someone can share with me that I have not been through, or helped someone else through. Being a natural problem solver and a deep empath, I find and pull out your strengths to become your best self. I teach you how to flow and grow through things so that you can become the beautiful being of overflow that you too were meant to be. Rising from the ashes and turning your life of pain into a life of beauty. I show people how to be love in all situations, to themselves, to others, and ultimately to the world, how to love the unlovely, even, and especially when that unlovely is us. I teach fun tools and tricks to help fill life's cup so that you are able to help others in a much bigger way than you ever thought imaginable. We can't help the sick, broken, or poor by being one of them. It is time to stop trying to serve from an empty cup running on empty fumes and overflow your own magical goodness into the world in a way that only you can. The world needs you. You need you. I need you. You are worthy of so much more than you even know, and I am here to help bring out that best self in you: transforming your life, healing one hole in your heart's cup at a time. Whatever your goal or obstacle is, I will help you flow like water through it, over it, or around it to help your soul become the majestic ocean, it is meant to be. Open your heart and allow me to pour into you, to teach you methods to keep your cup full so that you can start pouring better things into others. This is what Overflowing is all about. Allow me to overflow my love into you. Start with the search bar, search for the thing you need the most, and read those posts. Take the actions inside of them and apply them to your life. If you would like someone on one time with me, to talk deep heart to heart stuff, shoot me an email at angie@bettermetribe.com, and let's have a talk. I'm here for you. Your heart matters to me and I am here to heal it.
