Imagine your best friend came to you before hockey trials and said,
I suck! Everyone else is better than me and I’m never going to make the team.
Would you say the following to her:
"Yes, you do suck and you should probably not get your hopes up about making the team."
Probably not, right!?
Are you a good friend – to yourself?
Think about something that you have been struggling with lately.
How do you speak to yourself?
Is it along the lines of:
Yes you do suck and you should probably not get your hopes up about making the team.
If it’s not okay to speak to someone else like this – why would you speak to yourself like this?
