Conflict Within Self

Two Minds Fighting

How can you say such a statement? How can I have conflict with myself? Well, you can. Normally you will find conflict between friends, associates, families, schools, churches and that is to name a few.

What is conf.lict anyway? It is a serious disagreement or argument, a difference of opinion. Conflict, between people, can become very ugly even to the point of hurting each other.

What I am writing about is the conflict we have within ourselves, which sometimes drives us to become moody, miserable and to self-neglect. A person feeling this way is always fighting a constant battle within themselves.

When does a person start to feel this conflict within oneself?

It can start from a young age and if it is not dealt with soon, then a person can be affected by it in even when you have children of your own. It is scary, because when you older, you don't want to have unresolved issues in your life when you should be enjoying life. It is difficult to deal with it, you try to ignore it, but it is that constant battle between your two brains. The one side is smarter than the other and you feel so defeated. Normally, when there is more than one child, the one child always out. The parent normally assures them that they are loved. The child that feels unloved normally starts his or her mind games. They try hard not to show how they are feeling and when you are older, you know exactly how to hide it, by pretending. You start loathing yourself and start talking down at yourself, telling yourself how could you say that, or tell yourself you are not good enough to join the team or not pretty enough or no one ever picks you.

When you older and still the conflict within you rages on. Then it is the career choice, will they choose you, or I am not smart enough for this job. Then it starts all over again, you start telling yourself that you should have studied more or you should not have listened to that person when he said that you will make a lot of money if you did that trade.

You meet some people but you think they are your friends and everyone is invited to go out for the weekend and you aren't included. You beat yourself up again. The conflict within yourself just continues to rise.

So how do you deal with this conflict within yourself?

You have to come to terms that you are dealing with a destructive self-inflicted behaviour because not only does it mess you up on the inside which affects your outward behaviour which you don't see.

Take a moment with yourself in the bathroom or your bedroom where you won't be interrupted and look in the mirror. Who do you see? Your competition. Do you like what you see? Just have a stare down with that image.

In your quiet time, just take pen and paper and write every single thought that comes to mind no matter how pathetic or degrading it is. Just write it down. Let it go. Those are the things that you think you are, now on the opposite of each one, write the opposite of each statement down.

Repeat it, repeat it and repeat it, wherever you are, even in your sleep, till that what you want is imprinted in your heart and till you see things differently.

I am asking you, reader, to email me at and feel free to ask me or tell me your success story because I believe that you will bring healing to the next person.
