Secrets of Success

Be Kind To Yourself



"Treat others the way you wish to be treated" is an old school mantra. But we often say horrible negative things to ourselves. If you wouldn't say it to a loved one, then it is not acceptable to say to yourself! Be kind to yourself and when that voice steps in counter it with something positive.

  • I have been trying this!! It is so true. We beat ourselves up and say things to ourselves that we would never say to a friend. Time to be your own friend!! - by SOYWOMAN
  • Thank you very much. I am almost always putting myself down or getting angry at myself over every little thing. I'm trying to be nicer to myself, but it's difficult to break such an old, old habit. - by TRESA7
