and, as a result, has forgotten exactly how to turn it back "up"
of course, this is by design and I think "men" are the ones doing the designing
ultimately, for men and women both it comes down to finding something within themselves they can "fall in love" with
until they see themselves as "worthy", nothing will go as planned
because the seeds of "undoing" are already planted deep within the subconscious
how to change this?
I always believe it comes down to "root cause" and my "methods" for finding that root cause include looking at "who" planted the seed(s) in the first place
and examining, literally, if what they said "was the truth"
if not -- then why did they say it?
through this process, one can begin connecting the dots and if your self-esteem is grounded in an attitude "given to you" that truly has nothing to do with YOU
and everything to do with THE GIVER
then it is possible to make a conscious evaluation and say "maybe this way of seeing myself isn't TRUE"
and, if not, then I am beating myself up for nothing, basically
we can regain our power but, first, we must regain our love for ourself
