Don’t Listen to Your Brain, It’s Stupid

  1. Whenever I start berating or otherwise abusing myself, I remember this:

    If I treated someone else the way I treat myself, only then would I be the monster I accuse myself of being.

    It doesn’t always stop what I’m doing, but it does remind me that I’m being rough with myself, as is my learned childhood habit.

    1. I have the same childhood habit. I’m also not very good at trusting my own feelings, another childhood habit. I like your advice too. I’ll add it to the list of things I say too myself when I need cheering. Thank you *hugs*
