Would you break a promise to your mother? Your spouse? Your most-trusted friend? Then why do you continually promise yourself that you’ll do better, work harder, make the right decisions, and then go right back to your old ways? We are our own worst critics, and we’re also our own worst friends.
We often know exactly what the right answer is, be it for diet, fitness, or overall happiness, and yet we constantly let ourselves go astray, breaking promise after promise with the most important person in our lives. Is it because we feel we aren’t worthy of the promise? That we’re afraid of who we might be able to become and what we might achieve if we reach our full potential? Is it that we’ve given up on ourselves?
I’m here to tell you that you ARE worthy, you will LOVE who you become when you reach that potential, and there’s so much more to you than what you give yourself credit for that it would be a damn shame if you let that slip away. So look yourself in the mirror, realize that the person staring back at you is an amazing, strong, capable human being, and promise yourself that you’re going to treat yourself the way you DESERVE. And then, most importantly, KEEP your promise!
