Worth a try?

What do we tell ourselves internally? How do we speak to ourselves?

My guess…we speak badly to ourselves, we tell ourselves all kinds of stories based on the psychological fears that our mind creates.

Interestingly we do not say good things to ourselves, we don’t focus being kind to ourselves.

This is a choice that we make every day, without hesitation, in our unconscious mind-state, we are not even aware of these repeating patterns, and we are not aware of the damage it does to our mental and physical health.

We could, of course, choose to become more conscious and step away from the unkind narratives. Just think how things would change if we decided to be kind to ourselves. Worth a try?

Kindness to ourselves

Instead of saying to ourselves ‘I’m a good partner/wife/husband/father/mother’ or ‘I’m kind/loving/generous/supportive/thoughtful person’ we say bad things to ourselves.

We always find something to criticise or compare with others to beat ourselves up with.

Kindness to ourselves could be our default setting, if we choose.

We could be our number one fan instead of our number one critic.
