People say we are our worst critics to ourselves.

We can even be hard on ourselves.

The mind is our worst enemy.

We even punish ourselves for not meeting a goal or for giving into whatever we told ourselves not to do.

Our minds are so powerful.

We can tell ourselves negative things and think negative all the time – it’s such a toxic thing to do. We can turn things around by start thinking more positively and telling ourselves “I can” statements.

“I can do this!”

“I can do anything I put my mind too!”

Honestly, the way we think reflects our life.

Why do we try to destroy our own self with our words?

We should be the one who picks ourself up again when we fall down.

I know that when a new obstacle comes up in your life, it’s a lot to take in.

Last week, I was informed that I needed to take an extra certification exam that is new and won’t be coming out until January 2021. I thought I had one more exam to take until I will officially be a certified teacher. Now, I have two in total that I need to pass. Another exam. Another exam I will be worrying about. I’m supposed to be graduating Spring 2021. There is already so much on my plate. It was a lot to take in. I cried, y’all. Yes, cried. When I passed the first certification exam I took back in January, I was so excited that I had one more test to get out of the way by passing it. It was disappointing.

Do you know what? I’m not going to worry about it because I know God is going to hold my hand through all of this. Ever since the beginning of my first semester of college, He has always been here by my side leading me. He has brought me this far and I’m not going to give up now, that is not an option.

I also drank two cups of coffee when I found out this news. Stress got to me. I wanted something that will just help me get through this.

If you didn’t know, I stopped drinking coffee since November. This was the first time I drank coffee in a long time. Was I mean to my body by depriving myself after I had the coffee, had negative thoughts or feelings? Nope. Not one bit.

I wasn’t going to tell myself no because it was wanted I needed, especially since I needed to complete homework.

We need to start being kind to ourselves. I could have told my body negative things, but I chose not to. Today is a new day and that is that.

Honestly, having acne can literally mess with your mind.

It’s exhausting to try to cover it up with makeup 24/7.

You think that people notice your acne first before anything.

You even stop going to things for awhile because it is exhausting to think that you need to cover up your face before you get out of the house.

I sometimes think those things.

By thinking that the acne is a part of having PCOS and that it’s not my fault at all , it helps prevent those negative thoughts in my mind. It’s like saying that it’s not you, it’s your PCOS – that is the reason why you have acne. It’s not your fault. By thinking this, it helps me to embrace having acne.

I know that one day I won’t have these painful hormonal acne everywhere. I will go to places instead of choosing to stay home because the thought of putting on makeup exhausts me. It’s a lot to cover up.

I sometimes wonder what made me get this hormonal syndrome because I still don’t know. I don’t think I ever will, but I will one day when God explains everything to me. He will explain the reasons behind why He made me go through certain things in my life.

These are the things I tell myself:

I didn’t cause my PCOS; it is not my fault.

I am still beautiful in God’s eyes.

I am strong.

I am a fighter.

I can do anything with God by my side.

It’s going to be ok.

Keep on going, don’t stop now.

God, please give me some motivation to get things done.

I will pass my certification exams.

I will become an Elementary teacher.

I can do hard things.

My worth doesn’t come from my external appearance, my worth comes from God.

I am getting the help I need.

What people think about me is none of my business.

I am beautiful inside and out.

I tell myself these sayings every day, especially on hard days.

My point is that we need to start being more kind to ourselves. Do you deprive yourself after you tell yourself that you’re not going to eat something, but you eat it anyways? We should never be that way to our bodies. It’s depressing to think about. Your body matters, too.

In the comments of this blog post, tell me something positive you always tell yourself. I want to know!

  1. Excellent message!

    As you know, I’m a harsh critic of myself. So beating yourself up is no stranger to me.

    I know how awkward it must be having PCOS and the symptoms it has but just remember nobody can judge you for it. We all have our issues.

    1. Thank you bro! We all are! I honestly don’t think it’s awkward, I think more of it as a battle that God is wanting me to fight while He is right beside me. I know that I will figure out whatever it is that will help my body, it just takes time and A LOT of patience! So true and thank you for reminding me that, we all struggle with things no one else knows about.✨

      1. Thank you, even though I need to stop the coffee habit again! I drank it one time yesterday because I had a class at 8 AM and once I had coffee, it made me feel wide awake. I could definitely tell the difference when I don’t and do have coffee – so crazy!🤯

      2. I highly doubt you drink as much as I do lol! Maybe I’m wrong but maybe it’s ok every now and then. Not several cups a day like me lol…

      3. How about this, try decaf. I know that sounds weird but decaf still has a little bit of caffeine in it. But you won’t be overpowered like with regular coffee.

      1. Her name is Taylor… don’t know her last name. She does Facebook lives doing makeup tutorials for a brand called Pharmacy. She was watching her one night and she said she had PCOS. I thought about you being in Texas with it too.

        Must be a Texas thing… 🤔
