I have been working with a friend to be more positive and when I read this line out of the article
Shunning Temptation: A Key to Receiving Revelation in the February 2014 Ensign I felt like it went right along with what we have been talking about:
Satan seeks to tempt us when we are feeling weak and what he perceives to be our weakest points he will pick away at them in the hope that we will succumb. . . . Nobody knows our weak points better than the person looking back at us in the mirror.
When we are negative and unkind to ourselves, we are doing Satan's job for him. We don't need to give him any more help. When you constantly pick at your weaknesses, like a scab, you can just make it worse and uglier. Be accepting of your weaknesses, they will in turn make you strong as you acknowledge them and find a way to strengthen them.
