Self-care tip of the day

We often have a more destructive relationship with ourselves than others, and our self-talk reflects the relationship that we've formed with ourselves.

Change your internal dialogue. Speak to yourself gently, such as:

"I am doing the best that I can."

"My feelings are real and important."

"I am a human being, not a human doing."

"I am enough."

"I am proud of myself and all I have achieved."

Start small, and believe the kind things you say to yourself.
