IT IS NOT AUTOMATICALLY TRUE THAT ONCE ONE STOPS HAVING A NEGATIVE SELF-IMAGE AND NEGATIVE SELF-TALK, THAT WHAT FOLLOW ARE ONLY UPLIFTING POSITIVES. OFTEN, INSTEAD OF FINALLY EXPERIENCING THE UNDEVELOPED POSITIVE SELF-IMAGE, AND POSITIVE SELF-TALK, THERE IS NOTHING…NO SENSE OF SELF, NO SENSE OF JOY, OF PURPOSE, OF GOALS, OF ACCOMPLISHMENTS, OF SPIRITUALITY, OR OF COMMUNITY. THERE IS ONLY EMPTINESS. TO MOST OF US, THIS EMPTINESS IS MORE LONELY AND MORE FRIGHTENING THAN ANY NEGATIVE SELF-IMAGE OR ANY NEGATIVE SELF-TALK.

We wonder why people hold onto negativity… it’s because the unknown, the untested is much more anxiety-provoking, energy draining, and frightening than the known effects and costs of the negative self-image, and negative self talk.
