Do you ever find yourself talking to yourself?
I have, so I suspect many of us have done this at one time or another.
So think back to times when you’ve been talking to yourself, did you really listen to what you were telling yourself? Were your own ‘words of wisdom’ really words of wisdom or were they really thoughts that you don’t really want to be having?
So be careful what you listen to, including the words you say to yourself, because they may influence you in a way you don’t want.
Make your words to others, and to yourself, positive and helpful, otherwise neither others or yourself will want to come to you for help.
