Negative Self Talk
I realized how truly powerful my negative self talk is…when put into “How would you feel if someone else was saying the things you say to yourself to someone else you care about”? This was quite eye opening as I said out loud the same words I say to myself but applied it in the form of this question about my children, it made me very very angry and immediately protective. I realized, how am I any different? I don’t deserve to be talked to this way. I have to do better, be better. This is the first step.
