You will never speak to anyone more than you speak to yourself in your head. Be kind to yourself.

Your inner voice is constant, a running commentary on every thought that enters your head. Sometimes it is taking place at this very moment, or it may be from last week or an incident from your childhood. They are all competing for recognition. The 'voices in your head' are very real, and often negative. It's as if you have stored every negative message you ever received or thought about yourself and they are on the repeat cycle. 

Make sure your worst enemy is not living between your own two ears.

Thankfully, you have the ability to choose one thought over the others. When you receive negative messaging, you are able to put a stop to it. It is not true, it is often the worst case scenario and just causes you stress. Your peace of mind is too important to allow these thoughts to take over your life. 

"It is not what you say our of your mouth that determines your life, it's what you whisper to yourself that has the most power." Robert Kovosaki

"Relentless, repetitive self talk is what changes our self-image." 
Denis Waitley

If you pay attention, you'll become aware of the negative thoughts running through your mind, the ones that cause anxiety. You are not obligated to believe everything you think. Choose what you want to listen to and it could change your life.  Be kind to yourself!! 

The mind replays what the heart can't delete.
