It can be beneficial when it is positive but human nature is unfortunately prone to negative self-talk, including sweeping assertions like “I can’t do anything right” or “I am a complete failure.” Self-talk matters because it helps to boost confidence, leads to better overall well-being, reduces stress and build better relationships.
