What can we do when that cold little voice inside our own head tells us that we aren’t good enough or smart enough to matter? Or when the voice tells us that we’ll never succeed, that we look weird, that we’re too tall or too short, that we can’t do anything right?

Sometimes all it takes is a bit of self-acceptance and love to make that cold little voice warm right up so that we can become our own best friend.
