Why do we keep asking ourselves questions with a negative premise like "Why can't I ever do anything right?" When we do this we perpetuate a negative image of ourselves. No wonder so many of us struggle to develop or maintain good self-esteem.
Write down all of your negative self-talk, and turn them into positive questions or statements like "How can I begin or continue my healing journey?" This will help you begin improving your self-image and self-esteem. Remember what author George Eliot, aka Mary Ann Evans said, “It’s never too late to be what you might have been.”
Keep asking yourself positive questions that assume a positive outlook like "Who and what do I want to be, and what can I do to hold onto my vision?"
