What we say to others and what we say to ourselves has the power to build up or tear down. I am always being told ‘be kind to yourself’, Even what we say to children can effect them for the rest of their lives. i.e. if we say to a child you cannot sing. That child will grow up to be negative about their singing and will not sing even when they are adults. I try to say something nice to a person I am speaking to even if it is to admire their buttons!
With this online support group the thing that always encourages me is all the lovely remarks you say to people. Thank you.
