Write Out The Insults You Say To Yourself

Seeing it on a piece of paper will make it more obvious to you how self-deprecating your thoughts really are.

Your thoughts run so swiftly, you may not register it if you’re not paying attention. Writing it allows you to slow down and see the absurdity in your own negative self-talk.

How You Should Talk To Yourself

Search your heart on how you want to speak with yourself and hence, feel about yourself. Your answer has to be affirmative (formulate your sentences using “do” instead of “don’t, ” etc. ), written in the first person, and in the present tense.

Take a Break From Social Media

Studies show that social media increases self-criticism. Instead, spend some time paying attention to yourself and how you feel and see your life through your own eyes.

If you cannot be with yourself or speak to yourself respectfully, you shouldn’t expect others to. 

Treat Yourself Like A Friend

If you catch yourself on a self-deprecating rant, check in with yourself and ask, “Would I say this to _____? ” If the answer is “no, ” then you don’t deserve to be spoken to in that way either. Don’t let these insults pass without defending yourself against your own negative self-talk.
