When practicing self-care, getting rid of negative self-talk is one of the first steps. Don’t insult yourself. It’s counter productive. In this way, self-care and the fight for justice align greatly. When speaking truth to power, it doesn’t help if you listen to the cynical inner voice telling you there’s no hope. Don’t allow nagging self-doubt to zap you of your power or agency. Quiet the negative talk so you can focus on positive change.
