Dear self

Friday, November 01, 2013

I know positive self talk is difficult for you. I know seeing yourself in a positive light is difficult for you. I really appreciate your taking the time to right this letter of affirmation to yourself today.

"You is kind, you is smart, you is important." We have all heard this quote from "The Help." How many of us believe it? Actually most of the time I do believe that I am kind, we all have our moments. I am usually kinder to other people than myself. Why is that? I know I fully believe we should treat others the way we would want to be treated. I can for the most part accomplish that with other people. Myself, not always the case, and when I do I often feel guilty about doing so. I feel sad, for myself that I am closer to sixty than I want to admit and still can not treat myself with the kindness I can so readily extend to others. Other people see the way I treat myself and whether conscious or not they imitate my example. This in turn feeds my belief that I don't deserve kindness. It is the most vicious type of circle we can begin.

So, my mantra for this week, "I deserve to be treated with kindness and respect"

    Put you first, you need to take care of you first before you are of any use to others.
