Call a girl pretty and she will forget in an hour, call a girl ugly and she will remember forever…
Why is that? Why is it easier to hold on to the pain than the pleasure? Why do we find it so easy to believe bad things about ourselves but not good?
Is it the belief that we are so full of ourselves if we take and believe the compliment?
Is it that you worry people will assume we think we are better than them?
Is it a fear that not being good enough is easier to handle so when we fail at things in life there is an excuse…
I am single because i am ugly, I am not doing the job of my dreams because I am not smart enough, I have not run the 5K because I am not fit enough, I can’t do exercise because I am too fat, I won’t get anywhere in this world because I failed a test at school and they said I wasn’t smart enough.
Start to listen differently.
Look for the compliment and remember it.
Don’t let someone else bring you down with jealousy.
Do look for constructive criticism to make you better and work on your weaknesses?
Show your strengths.
What is pretty or ugly is subjective – if we all thought the same stuff was pretty we would be screwed.
Stop beating yourself up.
Let go of negative thoughts, scoop up positive and let them manifest.#wisewords
