How many times have you said that to yourself? I bet a lot. Yeah, me too.
I found myself muttering that under my breath recently for making a simple mistake that really was no big deal. The problem was, I was embarrassed and mad at myself for making the blunder. So I called myself “stupid.”
I would never say that to anyone else, so why in God’s name would I be so cruel to myself? Exactly.
I am definitely not stupid. I am not my silly mistake.
So, then I answered myself again…this time, a little louder and said, “No, I am not!” At this point, I was basically arguing with my own self… But the smart Jen, won the argument.
This is a reminder today to be kind to yourself. Self talk matters.
What are you going to say today?
