What person do you listen to the most? Your BFF? Your spouse? Your boss? Your parents?
The answer may surprise you.
The person you listen to most is yourself.
What you tell yourself plays a pivotal role in your well-being and happiness. If your aim for your life is to have more peace and connection and feel better, developing the skills to talk yourself through challenging situations, explore all your options, think of ways to overcome obstacles and make choices that reflect your values is essential. Without these skills, you will feel stuck, overwhelmed, anxious, and frustrated with your life.
Equally as important as learning to speak to yourself is your ability to evaluate your behavior.
When we tell ourselves things like:-
“I don’t know what I’m doing.”
“I'm a horrible mom.”
“People don’t like me.”
Opposed to saying
"I am getting better.”
“I had a slip-up, but it is only a stumble on my road towards being a different person."
“Everyone makes mistakes.”
You send an entirely different message to your brain.
This difference in messaging affects how you feel, but it also affects whether you keep repeating the unwanted behavior.
If there is a behavior you are trying to change, be it large or small, listen to what you say to yourself. You could be the only person and voice standing in your way.
