“You’ve been criticizing yourself for years and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.” ~Louise Hay
Not sure where to start? Try remembering the best compliments you’ve ever received. Visualize what it was like when it was said to you.
Now, if you downplayed or rejected it (“it was nothing” or “no I don’t” or “you’re just saying that”) at the time, or said anything along the lines of “thanks, BUT”… change the script. Imagine genuinely thanking that person for that compliment without taking anything away from it (“thanks, it was/I do/I am!”).
Now look yourself in the eye and repeat that compliment back to yourself.
Now imagine actively thinking that way about yourself, without waiting for someone else to tell you. “This outfit looks great on me. My eyes are stunning. I’m getting so strong. I rocked that. I have so many great ideas.”
You’ve got this!
