If your friends, mother, daughter, loved ones said the words about themselves that you say about yourself, would it make you happy? I'll never understand why we think it's okay to say negative and hurtful things about ourselves when we would never dream of saying them to anyone we care about. I never want anyone to think of themselves the way I used to think about myself. Those crushing phrases; never being good enough, being worthless, fat, disgusting, ugly, stupid, not good at anything. They aren't doing anything but reinforcing those horrible thoughts, making them seem more real, giving them more of a hold in your mind. Words themselves hold no power, but when they are BELIEVED, they can make a person stronger or tear them apart.
If you want change, it starts in the mind. Negative thoughts need replaced with beautiful things you want to be true.
I wanted to be, so I said it. Then I thought it, then I became it. I'm a confident critter now, and it feels good to be free from the thoughts that kept me trapped in a dark depression and eating disorder for 7 years.
