If you are a woman it is almost a guarantee that you are doing something that is not only bad for your wellbeing but is bad for the wellbeing of others around you as well. It may seem like something that is harmless but it is infectious and causes other people to feel negative as well. The sad part is that over 77% of women do this on a daily basis.
When you wake up in the morning and look into the mirror, what do you do? Do you stare lovingly at yourself and admire all of your great qualities? Or do you stand there and pick yourself apart bit by bit and then go call a friend to vent your frustration? Every time that you open your mouth to complain about how you hate that curly thing that your hair is doing or about how your eyes are too big, or your hips are too wide, you are spreading all of that negative energy around. The more you speak about yourself in a negative way the more harmful it is for your self-esteem. And once your friends hear you talking like this, they begin to question what they don’t like about themselves.
It is time to stop all of the negative thoughts about yourself. Instead of thinking about the negative things, think about all of the positives such as how great the color of your eyes is or how toned your arms are. Every day add more and more positive thoughts. When someone gives you a compliment, thank them and be done with it, don’t deflect it back by saying something negative. If you have a friend that is complaining about their appearance in some way, compliment them and then make them aware of their negative habits as well.
