Do you ever notice that you talk to yourself in a way you would never in real life talk to someone else? I always seem to have this negative self talk going on in my head. And then it is like I am looking for situations to reinforce these opinions.
For example! The only clean towel this morning was a TeenAge Mutant Ninja Turtles beach towel- so that is what I used after my shower. Reinforcing the fact that ONE, I am a terrible housekeeper to not have clean towels, and TWO, I am ginormous as a whale to require a beach towel to dry off with rather than a regular sized bath towel.
And ok, ok. I'm a liar as well. It wasn't just this morning. I have been using this TMNT beach towel for 3 days so far. It has holes in it and at one point I'm pretty sure my husband used it in some sort of handyman project because it has some sort of crusty expanding foam stuck on it so while the towel itself is clean it is kind of crunchy and scratchy.
Why do I treat myself like this? I deserve better! I'm a valuable human being, even if the house elves are behind on the laundry.
I'm going to get up this minute and go start the washing machine.
