It’s Time To Be Kinder To Yourself. Here’s How To Start
The Bible tells us that “kind words are like honey, sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.” We often apply this verse to the way we speak to others, but what about the way we speak to ourselves?
Have you ever caught yourself saying things like “I’m stupid” when you mess up or looking at a picture of yourself and thinking, “I’m so ugly”? Our words are powerful, and if we say negative things to ourselves enough, we will start to truly believe them.
Would we talk to others the way we talk to ourselves? Or better yet, would Jesus Christ who loves us endlessly speak to us the way we speak to ourselves? If the answer is no, then that’s a sign we need to rethink the things we are saying about and to ourselves.
God didn’t make us stupid, ugly, or worthless and it’s time we stop speaking and believing those lies.
