You can not be kind to others if you are not kind to yourself.
Decide that today is the day that you will be kind to yourself.
Everybody has self-talk or self-chatter. Sometimes it is positive and sometimes it is negative (or very negative). Do you say things to yourself such as: “you idiot” or “how could you do that?” Do you say things to yourself that you wouldn’t say to others? Is what you say to yourself kind?
Today is the day that you will say:
I Will Be Kind To Myself.
When one of those ugly thoughts or self inflicted wounding words come to mind stop it.
Remember to forgive yourself. Forgiving yourself is kind. Forgiving others is kind
In our society, we often equate self-esteem with high performance. In contrast to this belief, our teen suicide rate has climbed in recent years. Some of our suicides are kids who were high performers in school and had a setback. High performance is not the requirement for self-esteem. In fact, many high performers suffer from anxiety and depression. Do not let those exterior things define you.
