Tip of the Day - If you can't say something nice...
Friday, August 28, 2009
If you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all.
We have all heard this one. When we were young, it might have been hard to understand why it was hurtful. But now that we’re older, we realize that words are not just words, and they can really cause some damage.
Have you ever thought about the impact your own thoughts have on your self-esteem? Do you ever hear yourself saying cruel things about someone – that someone being you?
No one likes to be called “fat” or “chunky”, and calling ourselves these names can prove just as hurtful as when someone else does. Next time you catch yourself saying something bad about yourself, try to stop before you do some major damage. Instead of pointing out how much weight you still have to lose, why not give yourself a pat on the back for the size(s) you have dropped?
