Positivity in our words and actions is necessary to have a stable support system. We are our biggest supporters and it is crucial how we treat ourselves in times of crisis. American-British actor and screenwriter Wentworth Miller shared why a person needs to be their own best friend. The actor's simple reasoning is something that many people need to hear and implement in their lives. He highlighted the importance of watching the way you talk to yourself in a video posted by @thriving_mindset on TikTok.

The "Prison Break" actor shared, "I realized that when I am in a crisis when I have, 'f***** up' and my response is, you f****** idiot." He added, "You know, how could you? Of course, what did you expect?" Miller realized that if he spoke to his friends the way he was talking to himself, he would have no friends. The actor told the audience that if they do talk to themselves out loud which he does quite often, "Make sure that the words are loving and supportive and nourishing. Start the work of being your own best friend."

Such wisdom and true knowledge." @ketosissobriety expressed, "I actually needed to hear this...I do treat myself badly and blame myself for the things of the past to the point I can't build a proper future because I tear myself down." While @jojo_.why had a different perspective, "I get it what he means but I don't know if I would get my a** up if I would say 'Oh it's fine don't worry too much about this and that.'" @dej.58 commented, "There’s that one quote that says if someone spoke to me the way I speak to myself that man wouldn’t be alive."

In another similar story, a motivational speaker shared a simple way we can keep our emotions in check. The speaker Mel Robbins shared the "Let them be" theory in a TikTok video. "The next time you feel left out, your friends go out to brunch together and they don't invite you. Let them," the woman said giving an example of her theory. "Your spouse does not wanna do the 5K with you. Let them," Robbins added. "You spend so much time and energy trying to control other people and getting emotionally worked up about things that are beyond your control," the author said. She expressed that letting people be would lead to true peace and control.

However, Robbins also highlighted that the "Let them" theory not only helps people find peace and control their emotions but also helps in revealing people's true colors. By letting them do whatever they please, we allow people to show their true colors and once they do so, you can choose what you want to do next. "Stop wasting energy trying to get other people to meet your expectations. Instead, try using the 'Let Them Theory,'" the woman wrote in the caption of the video.
