I had an epiphany.
The other night I was hanging out with a friend and she kept saying things like “Ugh I’m such an idiot” and “I’m literally so stupid.” I couldn’t help but think, does she really think that? Because I sure don’t.
This girl is one of the sweetest souls I have ever met and I know that she would never call anyone else stupid, so why would she say it about herself?
I couldn’t help but think, “Oh my gosh, I have done that.”
I say stuff like that all of the time and it made me realize…
We speak so kindly of others and yet so harshly of ourselves.
In light of my epiphany, I have made a pact with myself to not say anything to or about myself that I wouldn’t say to a friend.
I encourage you to join me.
