Today, I heard someone make a judging statement about herself that I already new wasn’t true. This person was being very hard on herself as she does exemplary work from what I’ve seen. I had to simply say, “Don’t speak that about yourself because, your words have power.”
Since I’m honest, with all I’ve got going on in my life, I realized recently that I have totally fallen off my positive mental attitude studies, my Biblical studies, my positive self talk, reading books that help me to remain strong, and more. BUT, I am determined to get refocused and have already begun to see the benefits just in the last few weeks of doing so. I am determined to stop judging myself and lift my own spirit when it begins to slump.

But, we should stop to ask if they are doing so because we have spoken many of these same words or phrases over ourselves. It is important to stop negatively judging yourself in order to continue to elevate your self-esteem and self-awareness. Often times, we become depressed because of the thoughts we’ve continually fed ourselves and, though it can be difficult, we must do our absolute best to make it a habit to feed our minds goodness so that it can smother out any and all bad.
Here are a few things that I’ve been working on over the years to stop judging myself and, I invite you to consider doing the same:
