11 Ways To Change Your Words To Change Your Mindset
Adriana Gil

I, and I believe, most people tend to say things that can give off negative vibes or create negative thoughts in their head. Whether or not they accept it or notice it, negative thoughts can have an actual effect on the way things turn out. That's why I made this list of 11 ways to change your words so you can change your mindset.

Change...

1. "I can't do this" to "How can I find a way to accomplish this?"

Instead of beating yourself up on not being able to do something, you can find a way to do it while also helping yourself grow.

2. "I am dumb" to "I can learn."

You should never put yourself down, but make yourself stronger.

3. "I made a mistake" to "I can learn from my mistakes."

4. "I HAVE to be perfect" to "I don't need to fit anyone's standards by my own."

There is no such thing as perfect. The only person you need to be good for is yourself.

5. "Someone will always be better than me" to "How can I become the best me?"

6. "They won't like me if I do this" to "Will I like me if I do this?"

Life should not be about what others may think of you, but what you think of yourself because that will affect everything else you do in your life.

7. "This is too hard" to "If I put my mind to it, I can do it."

8. "Why did I think I could do this? to "If I thought I could, I can."

If you put your mind to something, you can achieve it.

9. "I give up" to "I can find a way around this."

10. "My day is ruined" to "Is my day actually ruined or did that small thing get to me too much?"

It is so easy to let one thing ruin your whole day; but you are in control of your day. Choose to not let it get to you for the rest of the day and try to look past whatever it was.

11. "I am not enough" to "I am enough for me."

Work to be enough for yourself because you're the one living with yourself forever.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.
