The Superstar singer/actress Mary J. Blige told ELLE, that during her tumultuous marriage to Kendu Isaacs, she often relied on positive self-talk in order to stay comfortable in her own skin.
“If you’ve been beat down mentally by someone, you’re never pretty enough,” she explained of her relationship with her former manager Isaacs, which ended in 2016 after Blige filed for divorce. “You’re never smart enough. Nothing’s ever good enough.”
Blige admitted that during that point in her life, she was feeling “so low” that she had to find a strategy to feel good again.
“I had to pay myself the highest compliments, even if I didn’t believe it, just so I could build myself up,” Blige told the magazine. “I would do it in the morning, because that’s the time when your hair is not done and you don’t have on makeup. You’re just kind of dealing with yourself for real.” Now, her daily morning affirmations include telling herself, “Good morning, Gorgeous. I love you. I got you. I need you.” Click Here To Read More.
