Imagine that a 10-year old version of yourself is sitting opposite from you at this very minute. Got it? Okay, here goes.
Now tell this little girl or little boy that they mean absolutely nothing. Remind them they are an embarrassment – worthless, useless, dumb and ugly.
Are you doing it? Can you speak those words as you look a child in the eyes?
No, of course not! Why would you voice something so hurtful?
But that is what we essentially do to ourselves daily. The never ending negative self-talk. Stinging our emotions, wreaking havoc on our self-esteem, tearing our hearts to pieces.
What should we REALLY be repeating to this little girl or boy? That they are amazing, beautiful, smart and funny? That they are worth all the world and then some and never let anyone tell them otherwise? YES! EXACTLY!
Now say this to yourself…I AM WORTH IT! I AM BEAUTIFUL!
In all the world, there is no one else exactly like me – everything that comes out of me is authentically mine because I alone chose it. I own everything about me – my body, my feelings, my mouth, my voice, all my actions. I own me and I AM OKAY.
Replace the bad with the good as what you think about you bring about.
Repeat it…Believe it…Understand it!
