You have probably heard in your life the quote, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything all." From childhood to adulthood we have been told to speak good things and shut up when we want to say not so good things. We try our best as decent human beings to be polite to others, but do we have the same mindset to ourselves?
We can be kind and generous to others, but then be the worst critic and beat our own selves down. Yes, it is good to be cordial to others but you are the only 'you' that you can get on this earth; so treat yourself with the respect that you deserve.
Here are some positive affirmations you could say to yourself when you are about to be negative to yourself.
1. I made a mistake, I am not a mistake.
2. It's okay to not feel okay.
3. There is more good in me than I realize.
4. I am capable, I am talented, I am worthwhile.
5. I will renew my love for myself everyday.
There are so many other positive affirmations that you can say, but these are a good start! Start everyday and throughout the day with these affirmations and see how your feelings about yourself change!
