You know the drill like the back of your hand...you BFF calls, her world is crashing down around her and she needs to be talked off the proverbial ledge.
You speak calmly, kindly and eventually you make her laugh. Phew...emergency aborted!
But did you ever wonder why you can't do that for yourself? Why are you able to be kind with her, telling her not to be so hard on herself but you continue to beat yourself for every little thing with not an ounce of kindness to be seen?
Does this sound familiar?
BFF calls "OMG you won't believe it...I'm so useless!! You know I started that new diet last week and I was doing so good...but I'm having the crappiest day...the kids both had the stomach flu, of course, hubby just left to go to work without a second glance and I'm left to figure everything out, the sheets, ugh it's everywhere!! It's only 10 am and I've already eaten 2 blueberry muffins, what feels like a gallon of coffee and the donuts in the cabinet are calling my name!"
What you say to her: " Hey, it's OK...you know it's just a rough day, they happen. No need to throw in the towel...it's going to get better. The kids will get over the flu, you'll get back to the gym and get back on track with your smoothie for breakfast. STEP AWAY FROM THE DONUTS...they're not going to help anything. Do you want me to come over and lend a hand?"
What you'd say to yourself: "Screw it! I've already failed, what's the point anyway, I'm never going to lose this weight. Seriously, are you ever going to get your SH*T together? Come to mama donuts!!"
OK, so maybe not word for word, LOL, but it's true we definitely are kinder to our friends than ourselves.
Well, how would you like that to change? How would you like to start speaking to yourself with that same tone and empathy? How would that even feel...you've been so hard on yourself for so long?
