It's A Small Perspective Change That Changes Everything

During a difficult time, we often don't think things through very well. I know I fall victim to that often when I am stressed and make mistakes. All of a sudden I'm saying things like 'I'm so stupid' or 'failed again'.

Those statements may seem innocent enough but they are reinforcing lies I believe about myself. Been working on changing my perspective when it comes to things like this. Instead of 'I'm a failure' it's 'I failed'. It changes it from an identity I wear to an action I took.

I've found this to be very freeing when I realize what happening and start fighting against the lies but it's still not my first instinct. Maybe you already have this figured out and it doesn't matter, for the rest of us, here's to a little perspective change.
