When a message, positive or negative, is thought over and over, it forms a groove in the brain. The more often it occurs, the deeper the groove becomes.
As a negative thought becomes replaced with a corrective, positive thought, the groove begins to shrink, and the positive thought creates a new groove.
Therefore if your self esteem is always at risk and some people make you look down at yourself, consider your SELF TALK ..
(1) Make a log of your daily self log such as “I am a careless mom, I can’t focus, I hate this person”
(2) Replace the negative self talk with possible positive affirmations such as “I am capable of becoming the mother I want to be, I’m using the power Allah gave me to focus, I choose to look with mercy towards this person
(3) Place and alarm and reminders in your wallet, on the mirror etc
