I spent so many years of my life living with my own highly critical self-talk and I didn’t even know it!
It wasn’t until a friend of mine recommended the book “Secrets of the Millionaire Mind” by T.Harv Ecker that I realized I was doing this damaging behaviour.
So here’s what it looked like for me:
No matter where I went or whatever I did in my “real”, physical life, I felt people were looking at me and passing judgement. I think this came from bullying I experienced as a child where that is exactly what happened ever place I went and move I made when I was in school. I’d have this group of boys who slung a name at me constantly “monkey lady” and make monkey noises at me.
So I carried that with me. I thought where ever I went, IN PERSON, that someone was thinking bad things and so I wanted to shrink in order to avoid HEARING them SAY those bad things.
But then I went on to say them to myself. I’d pick apart all the possible things I thought people could or would say about me and think them in my head! It took up soooo much mental space and left very little room for the positive thoughts.
So that’s why I created this video. For the people who don’t realize they’re doing this to themselves or for those who do but don’t have a strategy to stop. In the video I explain the one little thing that helped me stop. I know this may not work for everyone but I hope it works for someone. I thought it was important to share, especially in a time like we are going through right now.
