Being kind to ourselves is hard. A thing I have started doing is I have to start the day with finding something positive about myself. Also for every bad thought I have to think of 2 positive things. It has helped me defend myself against myself if that makes sense.
Hmm, I notice taking a pause ⏸️ makes a world of a difference and/or, talking about it through with oneself ( this can be during a situation, before , or after )
Fake it til you make it
