What Not to Say

There are days that I cannot stop myself from speaking badly about myself. I will dump some of the rudest things that I say to myself to erase them from my mind. Please note that I do not want anyone using these horrible statements.

• Your goals are not obtainable

• You are lazy

• No one sees value in you

• You just sleep your life away

• You are not smart

• You are wasting your time

• You cannot keep friends

• You are a nobody

• How did you make it this far

• It would help if you were further along

• You are a setback

• You have no idea of what you are doing

• Just stop while you are ahead

• It won’t work

Here’s how I fight back:

• It will work out for you

• The setback provides insight

• You are allowed to take breaks

• You are right where you need to be

• Keep going even if it takes you 100 attempts

• You deserve the good that happens to you

• You will help others succeed

• You are valuable

• You have all the time that you need to get it done

• Each day you grow smarter

I am not saying that each day I can come up with a positive thought, but I make it a point to know that I will not always have these bad days. I hope that this helps anyone who has ever told themselves that they are not good enough. You are doing great.
