I love this powerful Buddha quote about enemies.
“Your worst enemy cannot harm you as much as your own unguarded thoughts.”-Buddha
I want you to ask yourself:
Would you allow SOMEBODY ELSE to say some of the mean/negative things you might be saying to yourself.
If this answer is NO WAY – I want you to do what I call a STOP and SWAP.
Don’t just STOP the negative thought.
You must alsomake sure you SWAP the negative thought with a POSITIVE thought.
Because it’s far easier to stop a thought, when you fill your mind with a replacement thought.
