Have you ever heard the statement, “You feel what you think?”
What you tell yourself reflects how you feel about yourself, others and the world around you.
If you’re telling yourself that you’re not good enough then you will feel lousy and have low self-esteem.
It’s important to catch the critical voice that comes in your head and tells you these negative and mostly untrue things.
It is vital to realize where these negative statements originated. Did someone say these things to you when you were little and now you’re continuing to tell yourself these same things?
Here’s where therapy helps. Most people don’t realize what they are telling themselves. It’s become automatic! Awareness is the next step, as well as understanding and having empathy for yourself.
When you can recognize and challenge your critical thoughts you can then choose to have new beliefs about yourself and the world.
