Day 552: Am I Well-Dressed?

Self-forgiveness and self-commitment statements

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to fear not being well dressed

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to define myself according to my clothes, and to define myself as either well dressed or not well dressed, and become fearful what others are going to think of me, if I am not well dressed

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to become fearful and anxious of not being well dressed

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to want to impress others with the clothes that I wear – not seeing, realizing and understanding that this desire comes from a sense of inferiority and feeling less than – where I feel and believe that I need to show others a particular side of myself and receive their liking for me to like, appreciate and love myself

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to be insecure with others in terms of my appearance – and to fear that my appearance is going to cause some negative reaction in others and that I am going to be judged – and thus I forgive myself that I have not accepted and allowed myself to love and appreciate myself unconditionally and do so regardless of the type of clothes that I wear

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to think that others might look down upon me and judge me as not being particularly well dressed and not looking particularly good if I have my weekday clothes on – my normal clothes that I were when I am not doing anything in particular

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to fear not being seen as a well-dressed and well-groomed person in fear of being judged as disgusting, unattractive, poor, and untrustworthy

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to fear what others are going to think of me if I am not well-groomed and well-dressed

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to base my value on whether others perceive me as well-dressed and well-groomed or not

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to fear not being in control of others perception of me, and to fear that others are going to create and have a negative perception of me due to the way that my clothes look – and within this I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to want and desire to be respected and have a positive value in the minds of people – in fear of being judged and disregarded

I forgive myself that I have accepted and allowed myself to go into fear before I put on clothes, fearing that I am not going to be accepted in these particular clothes, and that I am going to be judged, and receive a judgment – and as a polarity to that – before I put on clothes – go into a positive state of feeling superior and feeling good about myself due to the clothes I am wearing thinking that I will receive a positive remark and initiate a positive reactions in the minds of people

I commit myself to let my clothes be clothes and not something that defines my expression and value in a moment

I commit myself to, when and as I react to clothes, to take a breath, and to decide who I am within myself and how I stand, and what is my position, what is my expression, and to do so regardless of the type of clothes that I wear

I commit myself to stand equal to my clothes, and to engage with the physical expression and feel of the clothes – and to not relate to them using my mind, using energies, feelings and emotions – but to instead stand in equality and oneness with the clothes as a part of myself

Redefining words

Well-dressed – this word means that I am dressed well for a particular occasion. It does not define me or give me value. If it rains outside, then I am well-dressed if I take on my rain clothes. If I am going to a formal meeting. Then I am well-dressed if I have a suit and a tie. However, it does not define me. If others judge me because of the clothes that I wear – that is their problem and not mine.

Well-groomed – this word means that I am taking care of myself and my body by for example shaving, cutting and combing my hair, cutting my nails, washing myself, and in general committing myself to have a supportive hygiene – however – it does not define me or give me value. If others judge me due to my grooming, that is their problem, not mine.
