Life is a continuous process of improvement, and thus, as human beings, we are prone to make mistakes. Those mistakes are like whips that signal some things are wrong and need rectification.  Therefore, we have to abstain from the perfect public image mentality since it leads us to focus on how the world views us, rather than, acting from the true self within us. Furthermore, challenges in life enhance the mental muscle that transforms us into our better selves. People should stop beating themselves too hard for not achieving certain results, and instead, appreciate their efforts you have put. Self-love and self-appreciation will build you to become better with time.

Some people have a grim outlook on their lives either due to low self-esteem or an event that transpired during a critical psychological development phase in their life. Changing your attitude in life means taking control of past events that disoriented internal emotions. We can create a life that we want if we empower our attitudes. Therefore, you should always be aware of your feelings and chant positive thoughts in your mind to better your mindset.

Self-parent Yourself

The act of self-parenting involves having an inner dialogue with yourself. The dialogue should be between your ‘inner parent’ and ‘inner child. For example, if you are experiencing fear, you can consider it as your ‘inner child; but if you apply self-parenting techniques, the ‘inner parent’ becomes your mentor and it provides positive feedback. Being able to use this process, will change your whole attitude about life. Therefore, whenever you are not feeling good, initiate the self-parenting process to motivate yourself.
