Talk to Yourself Like You Would to Someone You Love.
Throughout my life I have been really bad about my self esteem. I would focus more on what I don’t look like, what I am not doing, and compare myself to other people. So, I messaged a woman that is a founder of my women empowerment group saying that I need help not being so hard on myself when it comes to my body or comparing myself to other women, whether it was body, career, or lifestyle. The next day, she had a big discussion about it with the Boss Babe group on Periscope and talked to us all and it really helped me understand the bigger picture. So, I want to help you understand what I learned.
Ask yourself these questions:
- “What do you like about yourself?”
I like that I see the good in people. I love the fact that I can dream big and dream bigger than I thought I could. I love that I face whatever challenges and fears come my way and bring myself up when needed. I love that I have a dream in life that I have been fighting for since I was about 4-years old.
- “Where do you see yourself in five years?”
I will be 26-years old. I see myself working or studying abroad at some point. Working for an amazing music business company with my own office! Helping well-known and new artist with their music and also working on my performing.
- “Will the insecurities you have about yourself now mean anything when you make it then?”
We are only human and I will see or feel things about myself that I don’t like. But, I just look at myself in the mirror and say “Today is an opportunity to discover new and old reasons why I am Magnificent.” I think I’m not the only one when I say that I am better at lifting other people up in their life and insecurities than I am myself. Now, I take the challenge to Talk to myself the way I would talk to someone I love. Ask yourself those three questions and remind yourself on why you are unique and magnificent.
Don’t hold yourself back.
