Vow #7: Quiet that negative little voice in my head when it starts to say mean things about my body that I'd never tolerate anyone else saying about me
This vow is basically the epitome of the Fudge Perfection Project.
Here are some other posts you may want to check out for more tips and tricks:
The <3 your reflection part 1 post
and the sequel to part 1 post :)
Here's the deal with this vow:
When other people call you out on imperfections, you should never let it get to you.
Why give them the power to mess with your self-esteem?
You are so much better than that, and you know it.
So how come we can brush off other people's crazy comments, but not the ones coming from our own heads?
Does it mean that because you say it to yourself, all of the sudden those negative, belittling comments becomes true?
Imma let you in on a little secret: The evil voice is wrong
How can she be right? She cant even see anything right WITH YOU?
Yes, I am aware that that's her job. To critique you. To, dare I say it, perfect you.
Your brain is constantly working and, as you know, it can get really exhausting up in there.
That negative voice is just wasting your brain's (therefor, your) time and energy.
Why waste your time listening to someone who's ultimate goal in life is to bring you down?
When you could be listening to a voice who sees the beauty in you?
Take my advice; DUMP THE VOICE.
HOW TO DO IT: Everytime, he/she/it tries to get a word in, start signing your favorite empowering song instead.
(need one? here are my favorites: http://fudgeperfection.blogspot.ca/2012/03/top-10-stay-strong-songs.html )
That's all for today!
Dont forget to help us get Seventeen on the FPP wagon (if you want :P)
