Replacing Negative Self Talk

Friday, June 07, 2013

So this is sort of my mentality for the moment....

I'm trying to think positive and well this is my start. I do think I have a beautiful personality so can it count as a positive thought? emoticon

I'm tired of looking in the mirror and thinking how ugly I look and all that crappy way of thinking. That is NOT going to boost my morale nor lose any weight. It's simply self defeating! How many of us struggle with this type of self talk?

I've been reading motivational blogs, and I know they are supposed to inspired me, but instead I feel like a failure. Does anyone else do that? I feel alone in this dept. I know I am not alone in my journey because I have emoticon spark friends and team mates that give so much support. I need to remember I am not alone.

I have been in give up mode for such a long time. I have told myself since I've gained all the weight back ..."I'm a failure. I just can't do this. It's not worth trying; you'll just fail. and the list goes on and on. Well ENOUGH!! It's time emoticon to start telling myself I am worthy and I am special and NOT a failure and that I CAN do this through Christ.

Negative self talk emoticon . I Deserve Better!!

    Cynthia, I agree with all of the other posts - & especially with RICKENICKEY. God has worked on me for many years concerning negative thoughts & words, period! Some of the areas have been easier for me to succeed in than others, & treating myself right (like a friend, as RICKENICKEY said) has been one area that I've not yet accomplished. But I'm starting, like you! And I love your poster - I'd love to have that to put on my fridge! I may just print off your blog so I can do that!

    We've missed you in the Chat Room - & I posted just now about some negative thoughts, etc.; you might like to read it. It's about letting other negative people bring us down - which is just as bad as us talking negatively to ourselves!

    Anyway, you have a blessed day & keep on keeping on, because you ARE a daughter of the Most High God (King), & you deserve better!

    You are not a failure. You are human. Cut yourself some slack and let's get started again. emoticon

    P. S. You are not alone. I feel like this too sometimes. emoticon

    One thing that I've read that stuck with me is to treat yourself as you would treat a friend. Talk to yourself like you would talk to a friend. Care for yourself like you would a friend. It's not second nature to me to be kind to myself, but I'm learning. I've been so rude to myself for so long, and I wouldn't dream of treating a friend that way. It's time we stop that! emoticon emoticon

    I have been on the yo-yo cycle of weight, that I have learned that I do know how to loose weight. It is just that I have to feel positive about myself to do the exercise and keep track of my nutrition and get quality sleep. Thank you for the encouragement on my staying quit, that kept me away from giving in, so thanks to your positive, inspirational words I made it through a rough time!

    Thanks so much for being my friend,
