Stop mistreating yourself. Be good to yourself. Love Yourself.

Every word you speak is a prayer, or meditation of reinforcement which creates permanence.

There is nothing worse than a treacherous, backstabbing double-talker running you down. It is hard to believe it when we have been treated with such disloyalty. Betrayal by those we trust can send us boiling into a panic of anxiety and pain. Just imagine a close friend or relative talking behind your back and whispering about your failures; prognosticating your doom and undermining your best efforts to lift yourself up. This bully is well informed and knows all of your past mistakes, and knows how to use those mistakes against you — a two-faced bully with a tongue like a switch-blade knife. Even worse, what do you do when the traitor is a very close relative; so closely related, that in fact, the betrayer — is you? That’s right, you; the voice in your head that’s whispering, “you aren’t good enough; you don’t deserve it and you can’t!” Maybe the self-inflicted battering is a more subtle, “what will people think?” Or perhaps it’s a whisper of procrastination to just, “try later, there’s always tomorrow.” Then there is the foulest pummeling; a total beat-down of, “You’re fat. You’re stupid. You’re a loser. I hate myself! I wish I were dead!”

“Your word is your wand. The words you speak create your own destiny.”
Florence Scovel Shinn

Maybe you never considered yourself a bully, a batterer or an abuser before, but maybe you are — to yourself. The worst bullies you will ever encounter in your life are your own thoughts. Being overly critical of yourself is like having a relentless, inescapable bully who follows you everywhere you go and abuses you. The worst part about this type of bully is that you can’t get rid of them, because you can’t get rid of yourself. But you can reform yourself and you can evolve yourself. You have to reach out to your inner-abuser and make peace. You can’t live your life as your own worst enemy! Go to a mirror, look yourself in the eye and make peace with yourself. Commit this day to putting your self-hatred and unreasonable doubts and fears behind you, once and for all. You are your own essential ally. Get right with yourself. When that inner-voice of doubt whispers against you, have a firm but sweet conversation with yourself, and exert your faith. Healing is a process and could take some time, but begin convincing yourself of your worthiness — no more abuse! Deep in your heart, you know you are good. Your heart knows you are deserving. Your heart knows you are worthy. Your heart knows you are capable. Every word you speak is a prayer, or meditation of reinforcement which creates permanence. Speak kindly to and of yourself. When the voices of doubt start whispering, turn-up the volume of faith and listen to your heart.

“Pause and remember– When you can truly realize and accept that all of life is cheering for you, and that every single event, person and lesson brought into your life has great purpose, then you have the real potential for living an evolved life full of grace, gratitude and magical splendor.”
