Y - 5 things to tell Yourself

I don’t know about you, but I talk to myself a lot. I’m sorry if I sound deranged but I believe we have two voices, the one in our head and the other in our heart. The rational head can give you tons of solutions but it based on what people say and how your previous experiences have been. And it is always peppered with doubt. On the other hand, the voice in your heart is full of hope. 

Here are 5 things you should tell yourself, i.e. things that your heart should tell your mind.  

This too shall pass.

Our life is full of ups and downs. But sometimes the bad phases are so painful and dark that it seems like we are stuck in that rabbit hole forever. But remember, that no matter how long the troubles last, it has to have an end. When the days seem dark and there’s no ray of hope, don’t give up yet. 

Tell yourself, This Too Shall Pass. Trust me, it will.

I can do it!

Often, we want to do something, achieve our goal, or take a risky decision. But there are people around you who tell you that you cannot, or you shouldn’t. Why, even your inner voice tells you, you cannot. When you are stuck with a decision, when in doubt about your ability, when the whole world seems to weigh you down, don’t give up on yourself yet. 

Tell yourself, I Can Do It. No one knows you better than yourself.

It’s my life.

Yes, it’s your life. You have the right to live it the way you want to. Don’t let other people influence or dictate how you should live, what you should do and what decisions you should take. Don’t let others tell you when or whether you should get married or have children, run a business, see the world, or paint, be in a homosexual relationship or a live-in one. Life is short. You don’t want to die with regrets, do you? When someone’s interferes in your decisions, don’t be forced to comply. 

Tell yourself, It’s My Life. I’m going to live the way I want to.

I don’t have to be perfect.

Are you trying to a perfectionist? Is the illusion of perfectionism making life miserable for you? There’s no perfect skin colour, there’s no perfect profession, there’s no perfect house, there’s even no perfect spouse or children! Similarly, you don’t have to be a perfect parent, perfect spouse, perfect child, perfect employee, perfect host, perfect yada, yada… No, you don’t.

Make it about gratitude and happiness than about perfection. When thoughts of perfection plague your mind and you feel you don’t have the perfect things or people to make life wonderful, don't fret.

Tell yourself, I Don’t Have To Be Perfect, neither do people and things around me.

I love you.

We always tell our loved ones that we love them. We pamper them, make them feel good, and make them feel loved. But what about you? Are you treating yourself well? Like they say, charity begins at home, love begins with self. Love yourself, keep yourself pampered and happy. Unless you love yourself how can you love others?

Tell yourself, I Love You. Every single day. 


  1. Oh I talk to myself a lot too and I keep reminding myself that This is just a phase and this shall pass too. The things you have shared is something I do everytime I have a bad day ! :)

    Little Heart Speaks

  2. I do talk to myself buddy but mostly in times of distress but what I learnt here today and which resonated deeply with my heart is saying I love you to myself.

  3. 'This too shall pass,' is my favorite mantra and I always keep on saying it to myself. I also loved the fact that you've stressed about not being perfect all the time. The stress to be perfect all the time is quite a killer. I was nodding through this post, Shubhangi. Good one. :)

  4. This too shall pass and I can do it are what I believe in. I like the self part too. When you love who YOU are, your relationships will be healthier and your life will be happier too!

  5. Silly as it may sound, I think I should tell myself 'I Love you' every day!

  6. I do this to myself but sometimes, fail to see the difference it makes in my life! Yet, I never stop practicing them!


  7. Back in December last year, I'd tell myself every single day, sometimes every single hour that this too shall pass. A part of me believed it, another part didn't, but I'm glad I pushed myself to listen to that beat of my heart.
    As for loving myself - Oh yeah, like Geet from Jab We Met, my favorite person is me :D :P

  8. I loved your post. I felt you are writing about me. Other that "I don't have be perfect", I do all above ;)

  9. Yourself:-I love your post.I enjoyed this blog post,It is inspiring and informative.


At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person..deep gratitude for those who have lighted the flame within me!! your comments will be appreciated..
