Don’t Be Your Worst Enemy
Let’s face it, life can be difficult. However, one of the greatest battles you will face is the battle with yourself. We tend to break down, block, hold back, punish, and abuse ourselves more than anyone else ever will. Many people will say that their negative attitude is born from their circumstances and that if their situation changed more in their favor, they would become more positive. However, that is backwards. Such thinking will only keep one running on a wheel, going round and round but not really getting anywhere. If you don’t believe me, just think about how long you have been waiting for that situation of yours to change. We have to change our thoughts first, then the change in our circumstances will follow. We must build up our self-love and let go of our self-hatred. We must learn to stop being our toughest critic, our worst enemy.
