  • 15. LET’S WORK ON OUR SELF-IMAGES!
    • Self-image: a belief system you have constructed about yourself.
    • Take 5 minutes to answer these questions:
    • What are your dominant negative beliefs? (Example: “I’m unattractive”, “I’m a loser.”)
    • What are the primary sources of these beliefs? Parents, teachers, school mates, etc.?
    • How valid are these beliefs? Are they based on facts? Consider the possibility that they are erroneous or just represent one way of looking at things.
    • Let’s share our findings with the person next to you.
  • 16. HOW DO YOU SPEAK TO YOURSELF?
    • Avoid toxic self-talk “should”, “ought”, “have to”
    • Use nurturing “prefer”, “want”, “choose”, “desire”. They reflect self-responsibility and free-choice.
