Stop Being a Dick To Yourself (HMDP #90)
In this podcast, we talk about negative self-talk, how we got it from somebody else and one way of stepping around it!
I really wanted to talk about negative self-talk this week on the Honest Modern Dating Podcast because when I work with people, it is usually one of the first things that I have to work with somebody on. I’m removing the self-talk that they have on themselves about their love life, but really, I wanted to bring up this idea that we often find ourselves being a dick to ourselves in all parts of life!
A child might tell another child that they aren’t good enough to be their friend, then that child spends the rest of their life telling themselves this. That they aren’t good enough! This is usually what happens. This is what I see in so many people, and often myself. The solution: decide what you want out of life, what kind of self-talk will get you there and decide to let go of everything else that you’ve suppressed that holds you back.
Usually, negative self-talk is a sign of suppressed emotions. These emotions have to build and build and build and then result in breakups or fights or pain. If you’re feeling something negative, it’s often a result of a lot of negative emotion!
So when you listen to this podcast, I want you to decide what area of your life that you’re being a dick to yourself on, and if you want to stop it, pay attention to the words that I say in this podcast because the solution is there! Usually the solution is right in front of your face!
