Self-Talk Tip #1
You are your worst critic, but you are also your strongest supporter...
Talking negatively about yourself is the first thing you must stop doing immediately.
1. Don't tell yourself things that you don't want to happen
2. Don't tell yourself things that aren't true
3. Don't tell yourself things that limit you
As a person who often practices self-talk to reflect and refocus throughout my daily life, I can tell you there are two types of conversations that go down in my head: the positive ones that motivate me and the negative ones that cause me to spiral down a rabbit hole of doubt, self-criticism, and a whole lot of overthinking. While only so many things can be said aloud, the words we refrain from saying and keep to ourselves usually reflect how we truly perceive things- including how we view ourselves. The most alarming effect of negative self-talk is that although many of these thoughts aren't true, the longer we dwell on them, the more likely they will come true.
You are what you feed yourself, so don't feed yourself pessimistic thoughts. If it's not something you would appreciate or let others say to you, it's not something you should say to yourself. While you are your worst critic, you are also your strongest supporter. It's inevitable you'll encounter many haters in this world. There will be more than a handful of people who say things to discourage you and make you feel as if you're worthless. And trust me, you don't need yourself to become another one of those people. So start now and be your strongest supporter. Feed yourself positive thoughts that benefit your mind, heart, and body. If you can't even do this for yourself, who else would? So remember this: you are your #1 fan, you are the person you believe you are, you can overcome negative self-talk, you can become the person you want to be.
