Stop Talking Shit To Yourself, Please

I know some people who talk so much shit to themselves you’d swear they were paid. And that crap-dialogue is so entrenched that it leaks out verbally–“I’m stupid, I suck, blah blah blah!,” etc.
My favorite response? “Don’t talk shit to yourself around me.”
To me, it’s the craziest thing in the world. Because YOU are the only person you’re going to be with for your entire life. And that means your relationship with YOU should take the highest priority; because that relationship informs how you relate with everyone else. It determines your success in every aspect of life.
If you talk down to yourself, you’re creating your own reality–and it’s not the one you want.
But if you talk yourself up–if you affirm your worth–, you’ll tap into the reality that was created for you by God. And it is good.
So cut the crap talk. Start loving yourself every second you can think of it. And when you make this a habit, you’ll open yourself up to doing all the incredible things you were born to do. But it starts with your self talk. So fix that shit. Please.
PS–Start every morning with positive thoughts about yourself. Setting the right tone for your day right off the bat makes being an extraordinary human that much easier. Make it a habit.
