Everyone has those moments when we beat ourselves up for something we did, said or didn’t do. But let me ask: When you are frustrated with yourself, have you ever considered how you’d feel if someone talked to you the way your inner voice talks to you?  How would you feel about someone who questioned your talents, skills and capabilities? 

My guess? Maybe in a weak moment, you’d try to convince them that they were wrong. After that, you would realize that such actions of self-defense are really a waste of your breath. So then? You’d avoid them, tell them to lose your number and leave you alone. ✨

Sadly, whenever anyone is being insulting — and this includes if we disrespect ourselves — suffering elevates. ✨

Today is a perfect day to become more attuned to your words and the intentions underlying your words. This is especially important when speaking with those you love…and hopefully…you’re at the top of that list of those you love. 

Why? Because the impact of words spoken by those we love are the ones we tend to listen to most closely, trying to interpret their meaning. ✨

Be sure that your words, to yourself and others, are selected carefully. Even when angry, we can express anger about an action without character annihilation. Decide carefully whether your words and tone are building relationships and clearly expressing your intentions…or if perhaps it might be good to resist a quick response.  #❤️
