How we see ourselves is way more important than how others see us. We can’t control others’ perceptions or realities but we can control our own. Take a moment and reflect on the words that you would use to describe yourself. Are they positive and kind? Or do you beat yourself up and say negative statements about yourself? We all do that sometimes when we make mistakes. I’d like to suggest talking to yourself as you would a friend who came to you with a problem. You would build that friend up, make them feel powerful and special, right? You would use encouraging words and remind them of all their positive attributes. Try that with yourself the next time you feel self-critical. The words we speak to ourselves are one of the most powerful tools we carry.
