What people say to us can have a direct impact on our self esteem. Think of your child in the playground and someone calls them a name (its not nice but unfortunately it happens). What will happen? Will they accept what was said to them as truth or will they ignore the word that were said?
We have all had this experience and will continue to have experiences of people’s ideas or judgement affecting the way we think of ourselves. What I teach is that we can’t stop people from saying things to us, they are allowed to have their opinion. We need to understand how words effect us and whether we will allow them to.
Easier said than done, right?
