I praise myself for big and little things.
I am a wonderful being. I used to scold and criticise myself because I believed it would help me improve my life, and yet, criticism has not imporved me over the years.
In face, criticism seems to make it much harder to change and progress.
So, as I listen to my inner dialogue and find that I am being critical, telling myself that I’m not good enough or that I’m doing something wrong, I recognize the old patterns of childhood, and I immediately begin to speak lovingly to my inner child. Instead of tearing myself apart, I choose to nourish myself with praise and approval. I know I am on the way to becoming consistently loving.
