FOR THE MOST PART, we tend to be kind to others. We compliment them, encourage them and care about how they are feeling or what they may be going through. With ourselves, it is often quite another story. Many of us spend hours every day criticizing our thoughts and feelings, continuously questioning our decisions, and having exceedingly high expectations of ourselves. If we recorded all of the messages we give ourselves every day and played them back, we would probably accuse ourselves of being in an abusive relationship with ourselves. Think about how many times each day you say something mean about your body, or criticize yourself for the way you spoke to a friend or relative. Whether it’s pointing out a flaw in your body, the clothes you chose, whether you came across as aggressive or passive with others, or just reprimanded yourself for being late, we are often mean and discouraging to our own selves. It is common for us to feel unjustified self-guilt for everyday decisions we make, or feel that we are being judged negatively by a colleague or friend. Interestingly, even when others genuinely compliment us, we often question their intentions or sanity rather than being able to internalize a positive truth about ourselves. This morning, for example, how many times did you compliment or congratulate yourself on something you said or did? Did you take the time to be kind to yourself ? Instead of rereading that email to your boss 7 times after you already sent it, because you felt you wrote something wrong, wouldn’t it be amazing if you could feel unconditional support and self-encouragement regularly? You don’t have to be mean to yourself to be motivated and excel in all areas of life; in fact, being sweet and kind to yourself will be more fulfilling, rewarding and allow you to have more success in all areas of life.
