Hi my lovely readers!
It was a bit of a wait, but without further ado, my second article has been published to HER Magazine! While my first article was about personal development through learning computer skills, I wanted to get a bit more personal this time around. This article is about rewriting negative self talk, and I’ve gone ahead and not only grabbed a sneak preview for you to read below, but also made some freebies for you to help with rewriting that negative self talk. You can grab your cell phone goodies here and computer goodies here!
Here’s a Tidbit For You:
In today’s world, we are constantly bombarded with marketing imagery intent on cutting down our self-esteem. We see images of unattainable body shapes all around us: on TV, in magazines, on billboards, even in video games and toys! And all of this marketing (some subliminal, some not so much) has one end goal: to convince us that if we buy their product, we’ll be cooler, richer, smarter, faster, stronger, thinner, more muscular, attractive, sexy…the list goes on.
But in the end it just leaves us feeling miserable.
We generally treat others with kindness, empathy, and respect, and yet we treat ourselves like we’re our own worst enemy. Unfortunately, the older we are, the harder it can be to rewrite all those years of negative self-talk. It’s time to practice self-love rather than self-judgment or hate, but that requires practice. The effort, however, will be well worth it: positive self-image can improve your happiness, your relationships, your success at work — not to mention how a positive example of self-love and self-care can impact our kids and those around us. So with this goal in mind, here are five essential steps you can take today to rewrite those years of self-doubt and negative self-talk.
If you’d like to read the full article, you can find it here.
So what do you think? Will you consider putting in some time and effort into rewriting your negative self talk? Let me know in the comments below, I’d love to hear about your journey towards loving yourself again.
With all my support,
