It is pretty common knowledge that we all talk to ourselves every day. This is known as self-talk, and this self-talk has an unbelievable impact on our lives. It initiates and exaggerates our emotions. It impacts the way we behave towards others.

Even our emotions such as anxiety, anger, love, or excitement are often associated with, or are even the result of, our self-talk.

Disturbed behaviors and extreme emotional reactions stem from what has occurred in our minds. Most people don’t realize that they do this daily.

I used to be my worst enemy until I had a fabulous therapist who taught me how to overcome these negative self-talks. It is not easy, but it can be done if you truly want to make a positive change in the way you see life and others.

It takes being present in each moment. By doing this, you will be able to recognize those negative thoughts when they enter your mind. Write them down, then write the truth in red beside it. Repeat those truths over and over each time one of those pesky thoughts enter your mind.
