Talking To Myself?

“Accept everything about yourself–I mean everything, You are you and that is the beginning and the end–no apologies, no regrets.” -Clark Moustakas

Being Honest With Yourself

Today I have been musing over this, what if I could step outside of myself and had a conversation with myself, how would it go?

Would I look at myself and point fingers of regret, mistakes, relationships that soured.  Would I defend myself against the pointing of fingers?  Would excuses trip off the tip of my tongue?  Would I lecture myself about my appearance, the weight gain, for not taking better care of myself?  Yes, what would I see looking at myself?

Or would I give myself a pep talk, telling myself I can do better, that all of those other things are water under the bridge.  Maybe, tell myself the lessons I can take from my past, apply those lessons so I can move forward.

I am not sure how long this conversation would be, would I be stubborn, refusing to listen to myself, or would I accept all of those things that I speak to myself?

I can almost place a date on when I finally started to move forward, seeing progress, light at the end of the tunnel.  Yes, I can put my finger to the point in time.  It was the day I began to accept everything about myself!

May I make a suggestion, take some time and have a talk with yourself, you will be amazed at what may come of it!

    In my opinion and experience self acceptance is right there with self love, self care and self compassion. We cannot practice the last three without the first.

    I talk to myself to figure things out but less often do I talk to myself about myself. I used to do this but I’d basically criticize myself or have a longing of who I was prior to marriage and a baby. For me it was looking at myself in embarrassment for myself. So for me to accept my full self in current time I had to ignore my own mentality for awhile. That’s still a work in progress.
