We are our own biggest critics.
How many times a day do you give yourself in to trouble, or put yourself down and say something nasty that you wouldn’t say to anyone else?
We all do it. We are so mean to ourselves it’s not funny.
I would like to think that if you have been reading my emails for a while now or have signed up for the Warrior Woman Project that you are much more aware of your words and how you speak to yourself, but, I do know that you will sometimes slip up and give yourself a hard time. Remember, if you had a ‘friend’ that spoke to you like you speak to you, you would not spend time with them.
We can’t get away from ourselves, we are there in our heads 24/7. Today, day 22 you need to say ‘I love you’.
Say it over and over and over. Say it until you believe it.
If you don’t love you, then you are going to struggle to have people in your life that love you the way you should be loved.
Self-care is about self-love, you treating you like you are the queen of your own empire (which you are).
I have an awesome t-shirt that says ‘fall in love with someone who treats you like Kanye treats Kanye’.
Kanye West is the king of making himself number 1 in his world. And look at how successful he is. Some would say he is arrogant and puts himself first.
I don’t know him personally, but he may come across that way to some people. But, people that know how to put themselves first are able to give the best of themselves to those around them. They are happiest within themselves and the world they have created for them. It’s not about being arrogant, it’s about putting your wants and needs first.
Telling yourself ‘I love you’ and believing it, is your first step in respecting yourself and allowing you to prioritise your needs and wants and making you happy.
‘I love you’
