What is it that you are saying when you talk to your self? Do you think that you don’t? You do. In fact, you talk to your own self more than to anyone else–and that’s a good thing. However, depending upon what it is that you’re saying, you are either propelling yourself into a great zone or thwarting that and being very punishing.
Not one of us, not a single one, are at one place or the other–not all the time. Self talk is fluid. Where are you on the continuum?
you are garbage you’re not 1/2 bad you are awesome
you can do nothing you can do anything
Some people talk to God, not their own self. Okay, same scenario. Whether you believe in God, Abba, Mother Nature, The Source, the Universe, or Buddha, it makes no difference in the theme of inner dialogue. The point is to turn inward and to explore how it is that you think about:
1. who you are;
2. your place on this planet in this life;
3. your purpose and your value.
When I self talk, I find myself transitioning from me and my own spirit, to God, to The Source, and to my parents. I feel a connection and an accountability to each. I find comfort in this line of thinking and feeling. It helps me to feel supported beyond that which is tangible and immediate.
When you head down the path of negative, where do you go? Are you aware that every thought you generate is in your realm of influence and control? And every thought releases chemicals into your bloodstream because each and every thought is tied to an emotion. Your mind is powerful, very powerful. Use it for goodness.
Each and every day, greet yourself, treat you own self, your own being, as you would a person you wanted to make friends with and know genuinely. Be kind, supportive, authentic, positive, compassionate, and smart. Who deserves the best of you more than you do?
It’s all about attitude, turn yours positive and loving–your inner strength will benefit and you’ll feel happy.
