Default Re: Negative self-talk

It sounds like a part of your negativity is coming from you thinking you are too old to improve or try new things, and that youíve left it too late (I havenít seen your other posts, so Iím sorry if Iím wrong). Youíre never too old to improve your life or try something new, and itís never too late.

You are as important as the people around you, and deserve to be happy and to enjoy yourself. Maybe you didnít succeed in one part of your life, but it doesnít mean you canít succeed in another. You could surprise yourself.

Are there any hobbies you think you would enjoy, or have always wanted to try? You could find employment through something you are good at or enjoy doing.

Achievement can have many meanings, including simple ones such as overcoming your negativity. Making a list of the things you like about yourself could make you feel better about yourself, even if itís only temporary.

Iím sorry to hear about what youíre going through, and I hope things will get better for you.
