The most important relationship we have may be with ourselves, but have you ever noticed how strained that relationship can sometimes be? Its definitely true that we are our worst critics, but oftentimes when the world is kicking us around it seems like we add one last kick to the nuts there, in the very end. When other people spread negativity about us, we tend to join in and point fingers at ourselves too. This cycle of unhealthy negativity starts in the mind and branches out into every facet of our live and guarantees that nothing goes right.
So lets fucking stop it. I think it’s important that we learn how to be our own personal cheerleaders. When nothing seems to be going right, we have to train ourselves to be the voice of reason. When you are going through something, its important to remember that you will eventually be through it. When you go through a break-up, you have to remember that you are getting an opportunity to make-up with yourself. When you feel ugly, it’s important to remember that no matter how ugly you actually are, there is still Carrot Top.
Being your own cheerleader may not feel natural to you, but you should do it anyway. The reason for this is, that 90% of the time, nobody else is going to do it for you.[ via ]
