Think about someone you like a lot. You feel good when you’re with this person and they just ‘get’ you. Then try to break down what it is about this person you really like. Is it their sense of humor, their positive attitude, their caring nature? Chances are you ‘get’ each other because you, too, have those same attributes. You are funny, you have a positive attitude, you are caring.
These characteristics are the ones we want to focus on. We need to remind ourselves on a daily basis, and multiple times during the day, that we are good, kind, funny, generous people. Doing this reduces the amount of time we spend in negative self-talk, and reinforces our true value. A mind cannot hold two opposing thoughts at the same time, so spend more time valuing yourself and keep those negative thoughts away!
