The mirror is my best friend

 

I like Linsey Sterling

 

https://www.lindseystirling.com/

 

She said something in passing on a YouTube that I though was insightful, perhaps profound.

 

When a person feels bad about themselves, they try to shut down those bad feelings, and sometimes they shut down good feeling with them.

The Behavioral Shutdown Theory of Depression

 

It could go a long way in understanding the problems in the world, the PTSD of poverty, abuse, racism, and misogyny.

 

I agree when you say this.

 

When you’re feeling down, try self-talk. Talk to yourself as your best friend would. Help yourself in putting a big smile on your face, and realizing that by being yourself, you add something positive and beautiful to the world. Don’t be too hard on yourself if you can’t scale that mountain. Simply tell yourself that you will, and remember that you are your best friend!

 

Don't shut down good feelings.

download (1).jpgsagar Solitude can be a powerful tool to help you realize that you are your foremost friend. You are the only person who can understand everything you have ever been, everything you will ever be, and what you are right now. People come and go in your life, like a constantly moving ocean, but it’s you who is going to swim in it.

 

That’s why it is important to never underestimate your potential. All those wild dreams and unopened boxes of aspirations can be unlocked only by you, no one else.
