WHY are WE constantly criticizing ourselves?
WHY do WE continually compare ourselves to everyone?
WHY do WE think we'd be soooooooo much HaPpIeR if......
we were just:
5. married to someone who___________
6. got to go on lavish vacations
7. had a different house
8. had a different job etc., etc., etc.
The TRUTH IS.... Psychology and Neuroscience will both tell you
that after your BASIC NEEDS have been met....
HAPPINESS becomes a
you CHOOSE for yourself !
Modern society is under a SIEGE of Negative Self-Talk
and many people don't even realize
it's going on inside their BRAINS...
and IF we do BECOME aware
of those nasty thoughts we have about ourselves...
we often mistakenly THINK
they JUST live within the privacy
of our OWN HEAD!
IN Fact...NOTHING could be farther from the truth!
Every single thought you have about yourself
is telling your BRAIN how to interpret
WHO YOU ARE!!!
According to an article in Psychology Today
people justify the cruelty they "SAY" inside their heads by believing:
1. I deserve it... I screwed up
2. It keeps my ego in check
3. If I Expect the worst I won't be disappointed
4. I don't really believe it
Studies show that exactly the OPPOSITE is true.
YOUR BRAIN DOES BELIEVE IT!
and.... you are creating continual wiring inside your head
"YOU ARE A FAILURE!"
So STOP doing that!
Start today and CHALLENGE your inner voice!
NEVER be afraid to be WHO YOU ARE!
The problem is...so many people have NO IDEA who they are
because they’ve spent their whole lives
being who someone else told them to be!
It’s taken me 52 years to be OK to be ME!!!
Don’t wait that long!
I always wanted to be quiet, graceful and elegant!
I so admired those qualities in others
and used to hate that I was too loud, too rough, and not very lady like
I have FINALLY reached a place where I can embrace
my insanely loud laugh,
my hillbilly southern drawl,
the fact that I LOVE to wear tooooons of Turquoise Jewelry,
talk to my dog like he’s a human,
hug my kids like they’re still 3 years old,
continue to get excited when I put on a tutu,
am a total nerd about reading and learning new things,
drink lots of coffee,
and.... hope to wear heels up until the day I die!
Because....that’s WHO I AM!
What could you learn to embrace and see it differently just by BEING YOU?
