Self-Talk

NEGATIVE SELF-TALK:

  • I shouldn’t have done . . .
  • Why did i do . . .
  • I can’t . . .
  • I hate . . .
  • I really messed up . . .
  • Why do people make me feel . . . . .

POSITIVE SELF-TALK:

  • Next time i will . . .
  • It’s not like me to do that.
  • Maybe I can’t, but this is what i can do . . .
  • That’s not always true.
  • OK, so what? What’s the worst possible thing that can happen?
  • Nobody makes me feel a certain way. I choose how i feel, and I choose to feel good.

Positive self-talk can help you change your attitude toward a person, a project, or a problem. Use positive self-talk to change any negative or stressful situation. Why carry things around with you that hurt your self-image?
