Communication is one of the trickiest aspects of life. We say one thing and the other person hears something else. We mean one thing and our partner takes it completely the wrong way.
We all understand the importance of clear communication with others. We often overlook the importance of clear communication with ourselves.
Do you pay attention to how you talk to yourself? How that little voice inside your head tells you what’s bad about you, how things will go wrong, why it’s all your fault?
How we speak to ourselves is truly the symptom of how we feel about ourselves. Many people have said that if we spoke to our friends the way we speak to ourselves, we would soon have no friends.
So how about taking a gentler approach to how you speak to yourself?
Of course, we first must listen to what we are actually saying to ourselves. But after listening, how about re-framing those words in a kinder, gentler manner?
Try it, see how how you feel, and let us know.
