“You are SUCH an idiot! How could you have been so STUPID? What is WRONG with you???”
Most of you wouldn’t dream of talking to someone you loved in such a critical, judgemental undermining way. So why direct this type of judgment and criticism at yourself?
This week I’m discussing self-talk – the words, tone, language and messaging you send to yourself each day. It shows up in many ways – from the random thoughts that crop up in your head in response to an event or circumstance; to the incessant background chatter that plays over in your mind like a Spotify song on repeat.
Your self-talk is extremely powerful. It can either work for you or against you. My message to you this week is that your self-talk is 100% up to you: whether you are your own worst critic or your biggest champion – you get to choose.
