She looked at herself in the mirror, made eye contact, and said out loud, “You are exactly perfect just the way you are and anyone who says different is a fool and a liar.” ~ Queenisms™
We know how hard it is to look at ourselves in the mirror without voices screaming in our heads pointing out every flaw. But we’re here to tell you that you can control that mirror with practice (and those voices too). Confronting the mirror, head on, and changing the conversation is the key. And, practice is the tool. Trust us on this one and please try this.
Stand in front of the mirror and make eye contact with yourself. Now repeat after us: “I love you. I support you. I believe in you.” The first few times this will seem foolish. You’ll feel silly and it may be hard to do. But please, please keep trying. We rewire our brains with positive self talk. And, we deserve our own support and admiration.
We’d love to hear about your experience with the mirror exercise. When we share our stories, we share our strength.
