HOW TO PUT ON LOVE
Above all, clothe yourselves with love, which binds us all together in perfect harmony. –Colossians 3:14
Make it your mantra.
Breathe it in in the morning.
Imagine it as a cloak you put on.
Always be a little kinder than necessary.
3 WAYS LOVE PROTECTS YOU
1.It protects because it gives you meaning.
- It protects because it gives you purpose – protection from your insecurities, doubts, fears, delays, etc. – live is about others, not you, so it takes the pressure of performance off your shoulders.
- It protects because it gives you direction – with love, you can never go wrong or be lost, in a world of distraction and confusion, love simplifies and gives clarity.
21 WAYS TO AMP UP YOUR LOVE
- Be the first to say hello
- Do kind things for strangers
- Give yourself some down time
- Smile at yourself in the mirror every morning
- Exchange judgment for compliments
- Slow down and be more present

The essence of this 7-day Quick Confidence Boost is to reset your thinking and the power of your own self-actualization by giving you the tools and steps you need, in just three minutes per day to choose confidence. Confidence is a choice, and with the Quick Confidence Boost, you’ll learn that there are seven layers to that choice and to making it more automated for yourself so that you start living life without self-doubt, any nagging insecurities and with full surety in having the freedom to be yourself.

LISTENER OF THE EPISODE:
Hey Trish! 🙂
My name is Anonymous and I recently discovered your podcasts which I really love. I pretty much listened to most of them in a timespan of 2 weeks. You really inspire me and you make me want to be more active and work on myself and finally love myself. I´ve been struggling with depression for 11 years and I can proudly say that I finally overcame it a year ago ^^. Now I´m trying to focus on me only because I never took care of me. I´ve been reading a lot of self-help books and so I am on my way of feeling great about myself. When you said that, if we (your listeners) do not have a person who is telling us how much they love us, that you would love to be that person. I have to admit that I almost started crying because I never had someone like that. So thank you for wanting to be that person to me (and all the others).
I have always struggled with my family and I cannot say that they are trustworthy to me at all. This is why I am writing to you because I have a question that is up in my head and I never knew who to ask. I always had a really complicated relationship with my dad. He is trying too hard to love me and doesn´t realize that all he does is telling me that I am not worth enough, that I am a bad daughter and I don´t love him. I have to say that I started pushing my parents away when I was about 7 years old because they always fought and let everything out on me (they are divorced since I was 1 year, I´m 23 now). So I started to not get involved too much in my parents lives. But honestly, I am really trying to get my dad to understand that I am a very introverted person and I do not contact anyone more than once a month. I do that because I feel like there is no need for it. If I want to talk to people I will call or see them of course but I have always been a person who contacts someone when I REALLY feel like talking to them and I do not mean it badly. That is just how I am and all my friends and the rest of my family are okay with that.
But my dad just thinks that he is the only one I push away. I stopped being too attached to my family and that might be wrong, but I couldn´t take all the problems and all the fighting so I just took myself away from it. I am feeling more and more guilty, that I might really be a bad daughter even though I know that I am not. But this fear is creeping up recently and I do not know how to handle it.
So here is my question: Should I keep struggling with my issues I have with my dad, even though his company makes me feel worthless and makes me really down? Because I would have broken the contact to him if he wasn´t my dad. But being with him for more than 30 minutes makes me exhausted and lets self doubt really eat me up. He also talks bad about me with strangers or acquaintances. I have talked with him about everything over and over again, and that for all my life but he really puts it so that I am the bad one and I do not have or want to fight any longer.
I could really need your advice Trish. I hope to hear from you and thank you very much for your positivity and bubbliness. Your podcasts really help me on my way of loving myself 🙂
