Your Words Matter: Speaking More Authentically To Ourselves
I’m as big as a house.
I’m so stupid, I’m as thick as two short planks.
I have thunder thighs.
NONE of these make sense. They’re blatantly untrue (how can ANYONE be the size of a building?!), nonsensical (what even ARE thunder thighs?!), or simply untrue (I’m not stupid – there’s plenty of evidence to the contrary!).
In today’s short episode, we discuss the importance of how we speak to ourselves, and I talk about how the simple reminder we are good enough can help us in our language.
I also outline why affirmations can be fighting a losing battle against our more negative self talk.
I was inspired to record this after hearing a fabulous interview with the amazing therapist, Marisa Peer, on Lewis Howes’ podcast.
