It doesn’t matter if they put you down or criticise you.

What matters is whether or not you put yourself down.

It doesn’t matter if they build you up or praise you.

What matters is how you speak about yourself.

It doesn’t matter what they say.

It’s obviously nicer if you have people saying positive, encouraging things, but that’s not what’s most important.

Are you kind to yourself?

Do you believe in yourself?

Is your self-talk helping you in your walk?

That’s the voice that matters.
