To say we struggle with something does not mean we are losing. Its acknowledging that the thing takes more energy to overcome than others. Its confessing that moments of positive self talk can prevent the stream of negativity from flowing.
This conversation's inspiration...
"I just looked n the mirror and self talk told me that it didn't like what my eyes saw and I said aloud, I am beautiful", hunched my shoulders and walked away. I'm pretty sure it will happen again, unless I choose to avoid mirrors for the rest of my life. But this time, during this struggle, I won. "Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect, it means that you've decided to look beyond the imperfections."- Author Unknown
