Find a picture of yourself as a little kid and say to that little person what you say to yourself when you look in the mirror. Would you tell her that her thighs are too big? That she needs to lose weight? That her hair is wretched? That he’s not good enough? Would you tell him that he’ll never be enough, have enough, make enough? No you wouldn’t.
If you wouldn’t say those things to a small child, why do you say them to yourself?
A balanced diet. Exercise. Enough sleep. Vitamins. Health products. You name it. I think it has to start at the core. Reinforcing my self-worth comes from thinking about how I would talk to that grade school girl. I would treat her with kindness; I’d encourage and support her. I’d tell her she could do anything, be anything, go anywhere and that she is most certainly.. good enough.
What we do to ourselves, we end up expecting and accepting from others.
