Why do we do this to ourselves?
Why do we allow others direct access to our psyche to say unedited things that could be hurtful?
Then why do we repeat them over and over as if they were true?
And why do we invite others to continue berating us when it is so easy to say – STOP.
People become co-dependent to others when they allow them to say hurtful things as if they are to be accepted as the truth.
Most people beat themselves up because they have a lack of self-confidence or self-respect that acts as a protective barrier.
Never let anyone have direct access to your mind – even with good things because should they someday take them away, you remain damaged.
Beating yourself up can be replaced by talking yourself up by taking control.
