“You may find the worst enemy or best friend in yourself.” – English Proverb

The person whom you’ll spend the most time with during your life is yourself. So how is that relationship going lately? How do you talk to yourself? Are you your own best friend or have you been battling with yourself? Sometimes our inner voice can treat us worse than we’d ever treat someone else. Does your self-talk pave the way to the flow state or does it block you with unnecessary obstacles?

Life is so much easier when we’re kind to ourselves, often leading to more energy and a more peaceful existence. Just as we can choose to be considerate and forgiving to people in our lives, we can choose thoughts and actions that benefit our relationship with ourselves. It all starts with awareness, and your journal is a good place to touch base about it: What’s the state of your relationship with yourself? What would you like it to look and feel like? What’s one step you can take toward the relationship you envision? For me, meditation reduces negative self-talk and strengthens my connection with myself.
