Shame Is Not My Friend

This Sparked Me!

Shame might masquerade as a motivational friend, but I find that a negative inner dialogue does not inspire me to change, only to drag me down. I've been cutting short those negative messages and finding it easier to stay on track.

    Excellent!! I always respond better to positive messages. Why not make sure our self talk is positive as well?

We need less shame and more self esteem to build confidence on our journey to a healthy lifestyle.
