How you talk to yourself is everything. That little voice in your head determines your experience, your mood, your confidence or lack thereof — it’s a powerful SOB. In the words of Gandhi, “A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes.”
Think negative, self-defeating, hurtful thoughts and where do you think your road is headed? Not to self-love and inner joy, I assure you.
Besides, do you really want to live with a bully? There are enough naysayers in the world already — plenty of bad-mouthers, trolls and killjoys. So be kind. Speak sweetly. Stop beating yourself up and start patting yourself on the back. You, like everyone else, is fighting a hard battle. And don’t you deserve your own kindness as much as anyone else you encounter?
