Hey all I’m back again and today I want to talk to you about something I realized about myself and wanted to share it with you all.
We all have that little voice in our head, sometimes the voice is mean, sometimes it’s encouraging and positive. What I realized today though is that the little voice in my head is not my own voice.
Now I know that sounds a bit confusing so let me give you a little back story to try to explain to you all what I mean.
As far as I can remember my mom was mean not always to me, but if we were out in public she would make mean and snide remarks about other people and things. She would say that girl is ugly or those clothes suck, ya know things like that. I heard her say things like this from a very young age so to me it was a “normal” daily occurrence.
As I got older I realized I was doing the same thing as her I would say mean things about people I didn’t even know and as I started to change my outlook on myself, I realized I need to change more than my thoughts and feelings about myself, but how I think of other people.
The little voice in my head is my mothers voice, and I’m fighting with those thoughts everyday. I am getting so much better at it as well. At times when I would thing negative I take a step back and try to thing of good things instead of the bad. It’s a struggle, but I will beat it.
I want my kids to grow up with a positive voice in their heads that sees the good and not the bad. So take the time and think before you speak, because we all think and sometimes say negative things about others when we shouldn’t. Think before you speak.
If it’s not something you would say to someone you love, then just don’t say it.
