A few things about words:
- Words have power.
- You can’t take them back.
- They can last a long time.
- It takes lots of positive words to cancel out one negative word.
Words can build or crush: ideas, dreams, self-esteem, mood, belief, motivation, and so much more.
That’s as true for the way we talk to ourselves as it is in the way we talk to others.
We can be our own worst critics and hold ourselves down with negative self-talk. Sometimes those negative messages were planted long ago and have been played over and over for years. We just keep it going.
It’s not too late to change the messages playing in your head, to build yourself up so you have the confidence to meet any challenge.
Choose your words carefully.
Be kind to yourself. Speak to yourself with love and encouragement.
