How to Talk About Yourself

How to Talk About Yourself I  believe you should be sharing more of YOU. But, there is just one guideline to maximize your resilience, spiritual growth and life aptitude — only talk about the events, conversations and feelings about what is beneficial, uplifting and life-affirming. Or more basically, stop the complaining. Life is difficult, perhaps not fair even. Everyone faces hardship, loss and pain. The more you talk about your subjectively negative experiences, the more you enforce that reality.
