The critical words.
The cruel words.
The cutting words.
They enter your mind, and build up day by day, causing feelings of increasing anger.
These are seriously damaging emotions which will poison your body, and they will reveal themselves as pain and illness of one form or another.
You don't have to accept criticism or cruelty from others, and you definitely don't want to talk badly to yourself because your self-esteem has been knocked so low. Start the habit that will bring you more rewards than any other - listen to your thoughts.
When you can catch the negative words, simply say "Stop!" The more often you create peace and quiet, and tune in to your mind, the easier this will become. You will begin to recognize when your body feels tense, and make the association with remembering bad words from the past, or you being critical of yourself now.
Once you can prevent the flow of bad words, you can change them to kind words, and start by telling yourself that you're OK, you're doing the best you can. The more you practice this, the more you will like yourself, and the more you will want to care for yourself.
Then you can move on to encouraging yourself by acknowledging every good choice you make, and build up into being your own cheer-leading team - say "Well done!" every time you do something that makes you feel good. And you will find you spend a lot more time feeling good when you exchange negative words for positive ones.
You can collect all the words that have hurt you, and release them with ZPoint. When you're guided through the peaceful process you're able to distance yourself from their ability to hurt you again, and you gain the benefit of perspective, which allows you to forgive as you let go.
Those who harmed you with words were in pain themselves, but the lesson we learn is to be kind to others, and be quick to apologize if we do use harsh words. The more you experience ZPoint, the calmer you become, so you don't react as defensively as you did before.
Knowing the difference feeling peaceful makes, means you will change the words you use, and you will no longer tolerate them from others. You will treat yourself with respect, and only accept the same from everyone else (with no exceptions).
Your confidence will grow as you know you are deserving of the best treatment - and that always starts with how you treat yourself. Be gentle and patient with yourself always, and you will love how much better you feel.
"Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind. Not only do words infect, egotize, narcotize, and paralyze, but they enter into and color the minutest cells of the brain . . . ." ~ Rudyard Kipling speaking to the Royal College of Surgeons in London in 1923.
"Don't hold to anger, hurt or pain. They steal your energy and keep you from love." ~
