No negative self talk here!
Tuesday, December 22, 2020
I'm supposed to write an encouraging letter to myself today. No negative self-talk, no personal bashing, no putting myself down. It's supposed to build me up instead of tearing me down.
This is hard. Not because I don't think I deserve compliments and building up, but I don't really trash myself. I read an article quite a while ago about this, and ever since, I've been trying to compliment myself daily.
I always try to find something that I like about myself. This was very hard at first. I always believed that I deserved everything bad that happened to me. But now I know that's not true. I'm a good person, I'm a good cook, I've successfully raised two beautiful successful children, I'm losing weight, even though it's coming off very slowly.
But that's ok. Because I'm not perfect. The only one who is perfect is God, in my opinion.
And when I look in the mirror and I'm having a bad day and can't find anything to compliment myself on, I remind myself that I'm a very compassionate person. And I like that!
So here's to me! A beautiful, fun, compassionate, generous person. And here's to all of you beautiful people out there also!
