lately i’ve been replacing my “i’m sorry”s with “thank you”s, like instead of “sorry i’m late” i’ll say “thanks for waiting for me”, or instead of “sorry for being such a mess” i’ll say “thank you for loving me and caring about me unconditionally” and it’s not only shifted the way i think and feel about myself but also improved my relationships with others who now get to receive my gratitude instead of my negativity


Wow, I love this!


This is awesome for all those negative self talkers out there. And by those, I mean all of us.

Every time I see this advice to say thank you instead I’d sorry (not often enough) I repost it. And follow the advise for a while.

And because @tru2bkind is right, I need the reminder more often too.
