Speak kindly to yourself

“What is this self inside us, this silent observer,
Severe and speechless critic, who can terrorize us,
And urge us on to futile activity,
And in the end, judge us still more severely,
For the errors into which his own reproaches drove us?”

-- T. S. Eliot

How do you talk to yourself? Would you talk that way to anyone else?

Our thoughts create our reality. How do you typically think about yourself? Do you berate yourself for being stupid, sloppy, forgetful or insensitive? Do you watch yourself with interest, respect and compassion? Stay alert to your self-talk and let go of judgments that don’t serve you.

"Self-acceptance is my refusal to be in an adversarial relationship to myself."

-- Nathaniel Branden

Jungian astrologer Cathy Pagano writes,
"Do we use our remarkable creativity and imagination to keep the old king propped up, or do we let him die so new life and a new philosophy about life can emerge?"

How do you talk to yourself? Would you talk that way to anyone else?

Isn't that an interesting question? Why is it the person we are hardest on is ourselves? We seem to find it easier to accept others over ourselves. But really what is the point of being so unkind to ourselves? It only makes us miserable and self-sabotages our lives. Is that what we want our reality to be?
