I decided to make a blog post on positive self talk because I feel like it’s something so many of us don’t do very often. I can honestly say that I don’t do this as often as I should. Whenever I start to feel sad, depressed, or anxious I start to think and say things to myself that aren’t true. For example I may say that I deserve to be alone, that I’m not pretty, that I’m not successful, I don’t have any friends etc.
Usually once I’m out of this mood I don’t think these things anymore but I wonder if there is a way to reverse this thinking before it starts. I feel like so many of us don’t stop this talk until we feel better about ourselves.
I know that one thing I did for a while was writing the things I liked about myself on a piece of a paper and taping it to the back of my door. Then I also wrote in marker on a mirror I had a list of things I was with positive words and then a things I was not with words that were negative such as greedy, unemotional, and jealous.
These things were definitely helpful for a time but now I look for other options. So what I usually do now is read affirmations via Pinterest or I journal. But I’m always looking for more.
So what do you do for yourself that promotes more positive self talk and how do you combat negative self talks? Comment down below and let me know.

As I’m sure many of you have read before I’ve been trying to practice meditation. I know that for a lot of people meditation just seems like a lot of sitting and breathing but it’s a lot more than that. For me it gives me a sense of calm and let’s me focus on the things that I love and enjoy. It takes me away from the stresses of life for just a little bit and also helps me to better handle certain situations.
I decided to try meditation since I heard so much about it and the benefits that it has. Sometimes I have moments where I have a lot of anxiety and get depressed and I wanted to try something to help me handle it.
Now I tried many different apps and even YouTube for simple meditation and some worked and some didn’t. The best advice I can give is to start slow. Start with meditating for like 5 mins or less and then increasing time from there.
Currently I use an app for Insight timer and you can use the meditations for free but there is a paid version for $9.99 and includes some really interesting courses. I’ve taken a few that have interested me and they have been pretty helpful.
So try out some meditation practices and start slow. Also don’t get mad at yourself if you lose focus it happens.

So one thing that I’ve always wondered is why do we sometimes treat people different depending on who is around?
Now I’m sure that many of you are probably wondering what I mean. Well what I mean is that sometime when we are around different friends will treat another friend much different then we would if it was just you and that person. I’m sure we have all done it but the question is do we recognize it.
I can honestly say that I have done it and a lot of times it’s without me realizing it. But I can also say that I’ve had it done to me and it really sucks. I also really really don’t like the people that do this all the time and purposely.
When it’s done to you it makes you feel like your not wanted. Or it makes you feel like you less than the new person that has came around. I’ve had it done to me so much that depending on the person I can anticipate when it’s going to happen.
Well my challenge for everyone and also myself is to recognize when you do this and try to change that behavior. This behavior doesn’t make the other person feel good about themselves and if it’s too frequent it can make you look like a terrible friend.
But what do you think about this? Have you actually done this? Comment down below and let me know your thoughts.
