Freedom can be a tricky thing, especially if you've been trapped for a long time. The darkness of your thoughts can still feel comfortable. The lies can still sound like truth. While you hate the former prison, it is still the most familiar.
Living in freedom, believing the truth of who you are and believing that you have a purpose and a message, can be harder than living in the lies. It requires new muscles that have not been used in a long time, or maybe ever.
Take up your weapons and fight battle against the old way of thinking. As you strengthen your muscles, speak truth to yourself, out loud. There is something deep that happens when we hear truth with our ears. Say it like you believe it, even if you don't yet. Call out the lies for what they are and refuse to engage with them. The choice is yours.
I am beautiful. I am loved. I have value. I make a difference. I am powerful. I am free.
