You finally found that man/woman you were ready for, but you doubt they’ll stick around.
You stumbled upon your dream job but you doubt they’ll like you. You just bought a new Bobbi Brown foundation, but doubt it’ll be like your Prescriptives favorite.
These are all the whispers of self-sabotage getting ready to make an appearance.
All common, but what’s not is the response. Lately, I’ve been reading more on self talk. The things we tell ourselves when we feel “bad”. But how does one talk to self, when it’s the self that feels bad?! Well, there is a technique I read about in this book called Awaken Your Strongest Self. It says that we must “parent” ourselves and step outside. Not scold or criticize how we feel, but “baby” it and cajole it. Validate your feelings because they are real. Then walk yourself through to the remedy. Next time you get crazy thoughts, parent yourself through positive self talk. Don’t make any promises like “I will never feel this way again”. But more like “I understand how you feel, and I’m here for you.” There’s no need to struggle alone, or feel like you are alone, when we have so many facets of ourselves waiting to assist: the manager, the teacher, the student, etc.
Because all we all want to hear at the end of the day is that “It will all be okay”. Even if it’s a lie. Fake it until you make it.
