Do you talk to yourself much, or not enough? The tone you use to talk to yourself matters, talking harshly will make you feel negatively and will practically kill what positive self esteem you may have. Talking to yourself positively will re-assure you that you do actually love yourself.
What names if any do you call yourself? When you make a mistake do you slam your hand on the table, throw things and call yourself names like stupid, idiot, loser or comments similar to “I can’t do anything right!”?
Think about why it is that you speak to yourself this way, has someone in your past or present spoken to you like that? Do you listen and believe what you are saying to yourself?
Change the way you talk to yourself will change you.
Yes, it is true that you can’t change the past, and even though people may have spoken to you harshly doesn’t mean you have to treat yourself that way. You can improve yourself and your life by changing the way you speak to yourself and the way you speak to others about yourself. Make a list, a long list of all the positive and good things you have done or want to do in your life, then bask in those memories or imagine you doing some great things and feel good about it.
Listen carefully to what comes out of your mouth daily. Catch yourself when you say bad things about yourself or others. It is a bad habit that serves no positive purpose, so stop it. In fact, if you do catch yourself saying something negative about yourself then quickly say the opposite and make that a habit, eventually you will make the transition and habitually say positive things about yourself regularly. Be proud of your progress and all the things you have done in your life, and get excited about the future and all the things you want to do.
Talking to yourself positively with help your self esteem and motivate you to be a better and happier person. So enjoy your new life, you deserve it.
