7 Toxic Things We Tend to Tell Ourselves (but Need to Stop)


We all have a tendency to criticize ourselves and engage in negative self-talk, which can lead to feelings of worthlessness and add to our stress. This type of thinking has a profound impact on our well-being, motivation, and confidence, so it's important that we take steps to shift our internal dialogue into a more positive space.

Self Confidence

1. “I'm not good enough”

It can be easy to focus on the negative aspects of ourselves and feel unworthy, but this type of thinking is toxic. Instead, try to focus on your strengths and use them in meaningful ways. Most importantly, don't compare yourself to others; be proud of who you are! 

 2. “I can't do it”

 Having a pessimistic outlook and allowing your negative expectations to rule the day can prevent you from succeeding or achieving anything worthwhile. Instead, identify the problem and create an action plan for success. When feeling overwhelmed by the challenge remember that self-confidence is key and may require incremental successes over time in order to achieve a greater goal. 

 3. “I have no control over this situation”

 Having some semblance of control helps us function better in our daily lives. You always have some level of control in any given scenario, so instead focus on what you can change or influence to improve things for yourself rather than blaming external circumstances out of your hands.

 4. “Everything bad happens because of me”

 Bad things happen sometimes; it's part of life! Don't take responsibility for more than necessary — there are often many other factors that are beyond our control contributing to any given situation we find ourselves in

5. “Why bother? What difference does this make?”

 Discouragement has a way of making even the most mundane tasks seem daunting, but it's important to remember all the effort still matters and each small step taken is a big accomplishment! So instead of giving up after failure, failing forward toward success and bettering yourself bit by bit with each new experience until you reach your desired outcome! 

 6. “What will people think?”

 Focus less on what other people think about your decisions because, at the end of the day, it only matters how you feel about them! As long as every decision made is one that respects both yours and those around you then there is no need to worry about outside opinion factoring into decision making they should remain yours alone! 

 7. “I'm too tired/lazy/busy…etc” 

 The list goes on when it comes to excuses to avoid practicing meaningful self-care activities like taking time for rest or embracing healthy habits such as nutrition and exercise  -Fulfilling these responsibilities requires discipline, and recognizing these important goals require persistent motivation despite initial difficulty will help encourage positive actions day-in & day-out.

Instead of focusing on our shortcomings and dwelling on these thoughts, we must replace them with positive affirmations that promote confidence and hope. This can help us feel happier, more confident, and more motivated in life, so let's take steps now to build better habits based on appreciation and healthy self-talk.
