Everyone knows one. You know the friend who complains about EVERYTHING
Soon enough you get pretty damn fed up with that person. You end up ignoring their calls and text’s, you end up complaining about them.
So here is my question.
Why do you do this to yourself? Yeah, why are you complaining to yourself?
- I have no willpower
- I’m just not good enough
- I don’t have the discipline
- I’m not smart, strong, sexy, confident, insert your own “not enough” right here __________.
Whether you are thinking it, saying it, or screaming it you are complaining to yourself.
Stop being “that friend” Instead try this:
Pick a fault or something you constantly crush yourself about and talk to yourself like you are a supportive friend, coach, or mentor talking someone else up.
Try doing this 1x per week for 5 or 10 minutes. Build yourself up and achieve anything you want.
Just like everyone else on this planet, you are flawed, imperfect, and fuck up sometimes. You wouldn’t expect perfection from anyone else so why expect it out of yourself.
I’m not saying to let everything slide. I’m simply suggesting to become aware of your suffering and pain but do not get caught up in it. Instead of reacting to things in your life you’ll now begin to actively participate.
