Stop Negative Self-Talk
"This is so hard," "Something is wrong with me," and, "I hate my life." It's far too easy to buy into these types of thoughts, which can become self-fulfilling prophecies. I'm guilty of negative self-talk, and it's something I'm working to limit in my life. I've recently made a deal with myself: every time I say something negative about myself, I have to also say something positive. So if I think, "I'm a mess," I'll then remind myself, "You handled everything really well this morning."
