Internal dialogues

Monday, August 19, 2013

I come from a long line of people who sell themselves short, put themselves down, and generally have lower self-esteem than perhaps they should. Therefore, it isn't a total surprise that I have an internal dialogue that isn't the most kind.

I am trying to notice when I do that and evaluate if the tongue lashing I doled out to myself is warranted. There are times it is in my opinion. More often than not, however, it probably isn't.

    This is a good reminder to all of us. I am trying to train myself to talk to myself internally in the same manner as I do to my friends. I don't tongue lash them or berate them if they screw up; I am supportive and analytic (i.e., how could you do that better in the future? Was any part of it preventable?)
