Since hearing how negative self-talk adversely affects us, throughout the years I have made a concerted effort to be cognizant of it.
Sadly, many women, particularly, are very critical when it comes to themselves.
We'd never "diss" another person as badly as we diss ourselves.
Our hair, our bodies, organization efforts, and so on all come under our laser beam scrutiny.
Why? Why are we so quick to criticize ourselves?
Why not ditch negative self-talk all together?
Tell yourself how smart, how intelligent, kind, loving and special you are!
It took many years of introspection, research and some therapy to work on negative self-talk issues.
I sincerely hope never to return to putting myself down or letting others do it. No way. Life is too precious and way too fleeting.
(Remember this important message.)
Each morning, upon waking, I give thanks to Almighty God for letting me have another day of precious life.
He thinks I'm pretty special to give me such a a glorious gift so why would I think otherwise?
DO YOU TEND TO USE NEGATIVE SELF-TALK? IF YES, HOW CAN YOU STOP?
