Love yourself for having these good qualities. However, you are struggling with a particular issue. Admit it. 3. State out loud the problem you have with yourself. Repeat it 3 times. 4. Commit to resolving this problem within the next 24 hours. State your decided action out loud 3 times. 5. Congratulate yourself for courage and honesty in dealing with this personal issue.
