I don’t think I’m alone on this. Sometimes it looks like everyone else’s life looks like it is going much better than my own. I catch my self thinking “I’d rather be them” instead of embracing being me. If this is ever true for you, tap along.
Setup (while tapping the karate chop point): Even though I often think that I’d rather be them instead of me, I am open to learning to accept being me. Even though I often long to be someone other than who I am, I am eager to learn to love and accept myself more completely. Even though being someone else seems to be quite alluring at times, there is another part of me that likes who I am. I am open to getting more in touch with that part of myself on a regular basis.
Eyebrow…I’d rather be them instead of me
Side of Eye…This is another manifestation of the grass is always greener
Under the Eye…Even though I know the fallacy of that type of thinking it still creeps into my consciousness
Under Nose…When I want to be someone else I’m really rejecting me
Chin…How can I expect other people to accept me when I don’t accept myself?
Collarbone…When I want to be someone else it sometimes means that I just want to hide from my own problems and challenges
Under the Arm…Other times it means that I’m buying into the myth that other people don’t have the problems I have
Top of Head…While I know that is false, it is easy to fall into the trap since I don’t see their problems
Eyebrow…I only feel my own
Side of Eye…When all of my longing to be someone else or live someone else’s life is over
Under Eye…I’m still left with whatever it is that I need to deal with
Under the Nose…The energy of wishing and longing for someone else’s life is wasted
Chin…It would be better spent trying to be the best me I know how to be
Collarbone…That’s the advice I always give to others
Under the Arm…Be the best you that you know how to be
Top of Head…In every second, minute, hour, and day
Eyebrow…That’s the message I often need to hear too
Side of Eye…Be the best me
Under the Eye…During the good times and during the bad times
Under the Nose… Not trying to be perfect
Chin…I don’t really want to be someone else
Collarbone…But sometimes I’m materialistic and just want the things they have
Under the Arm…I don’t want to be them
Top of Head…I want to learn to be the best me I can possible be. Because I am enough.
