Do you pay attention to your self-talk? Sometimes we say things to ourselves that we would never say to someone else. With other people we can overlook their shortcomings knowing that they made an effort and were doing the best they could.

In your own head does your self-talk go like this?

  •  “That was stupid” – implying that you should have known better
  • “Grace” – when you bump into something
  • “There you go again” – you’ll never do it right

Wouldn’t it be great if we talked to ourselves like we talk to our best friend? What kind of friend would we be if we criticized and put down our friend? If we treat ourselves like we are our own best friend we would be encouraging, forgiving, and much more tolerant of our shortcomings. Take time to treat yourself the way you’d treat others; you deserve it!
