Often we can be our own worst critics. Sometimes we say things to ourselves that really hurt. We judge ourselves harshly sometimes.
We do not thrive when we are critical – of ourselves or others. Criticism is a type of verbal poison – it poisons our spirits. It poisons other people’s spirits. Criticism and judgment are ways we hurt ourselves and hold ourselves back.
If your very best friend was going through a rough patch – what would you say to him or her? Would you be loving and supportive? Would you be kind and considerate?
Let’s talk to ourselves as if we are our own best friends. Let’s be kind and compassionate – to ourselves too.
