Believing In Yourself

"Why is that we can see our friends perfectly but when it comes to ourselves, no matter how hard we look do we ever see ourselves clearly?" - Carrie - SATC

Why is it so hard to see yourself clearly?
Is it avoidance?
Is it that we are avoiding the truth?
But what is the truth?
Are we assuming the truth is negative?
But why are we assuming the truth is negative?
Why isn't the truth positive?
And if the truth is positive why don't we want to see it?
Why is it that we can't see the positive in who we are?
What do we gain from that perspective
Is it that we are afraid?
Is it that we think we may look like we are bragging by believing in the good in ourselves?
But why should this be bragging?
Why would believing in the positive about ourselves be a negative thing?
Why is believing in the negative be a positive?
Why is it so hard to believe in ourselves?
Where did this programming come from?
How do we correct this programming?
