Teachers, School Counselors and Parents! I designed this poster to remind us about the power of words and language. The way we speak to ourselves matters. Sometimes a simple re-framing of our self-talk can make a huge difference in how we perceive ourselves, others, and a situation. It can be the difference between being stuck or being flexible. Between giving up or cultivating grit and resilience. Between low self-esteem or high self-compassion.
