It’s time to fill up your own cup.
What do you see when you look in the mirror? What do the voices in your head try to convince you of? What happens when you say “I love me”…. if any of the answers to these questions are negative self talk, personal abuse or self-hate… you are not alone. The first time I did the following exercise my ego mind went on a tyrant. I looked in the mirror and said out loud “I love me”. It felt like a lie. Immediately my mind went off, “You look fat”, “Far from perfect”, “Stop lying [evil laugh]”… can you relate? It gets better, now try the same exercise, in front of the mirror, naked…. woah man, my mind is a real asshole, right? We are our own worst critic. How do we undo the damage of DECADES of self abuse?
Start with “I love me” and every time you try to find the exceptions… but I suck at XYZ…. but I can’t dance… whatever your mind comes up with, just redirect back to “I love me”.
Say it, out loud, every time you say something negative about yourself, every time you fail, every time you are less than perfect because LOVE is bigger than our faults. And you should show the world how you deserve to be treated by leading by example. When you treat yourself like shit, other people think it’s okay to do the same, so stop, just stop. It’s time to rewire that brain of yours to think positive. It’s hard work and it takes time but if you continue to change every negative pattern into LOVE then your world WILL change.
Watch the cascade effect as your life evolves. When you start treating yourself with love, taking care of it the way you would your best friend or child, and letting it live and thrive in a place of bliss.
