Let me ask you a question:

We can have a lot of crazy thoughts going through our minds…

What is your internal self-talk like? Β

  1. You don’t really want to know but I’ll tell you anyway. “Do cows celebrate birthdays?” “Why am I so awkward?” “Omg, blood is such a beautiful color. I need it as a nail polish.” “I’m such a contradictory person. I love myself.” “Why is clothing so socially acceptable?”

    And now you’ve inspired me to write an entire blog post. Gosh dang it I already have 7 drafts. πŸ˜„

  2. My internal voice rarely stops so if I were to start telling you all the stuff that goes on in my head you would either be bored or more likely overwhelmed. πŸ˜‰

    Over the last couple of years I’ve worked very hard to train that inner voice to focus on the positive. I have OCD so I can get on a sort of loop with the bad thoughts. I get stuck. So to combat this I purposely repeat positive affirmations that are important to me. One of my favorites is…I’m healthy, happy and strong. This one works wonders for me. It really does calm the thoughts when they are out of control.

      • It all started several years ago when I read the book ‘You Can Heal Your Life’ by Louise Hay and that is what started it all. I REALLY wanted to heal my life. It gave me hope in some of my darkest days. The thought that I could change my life and possibly even find a way to manage what was crippling OCD at the time made me feel powerful and once I started practicing affirmations I saw that is was in fact changing my life..healing my life. I never looked back and I’ve learned so much more since discovering that book. It opened me up to a whole new world.

      • Some of her beliefs are not mine…she believes that we create EVERYTHING in our lives. For example illness. I can get behind someone being there own cause of back pain (stress…lack of fitness…sitting too much for example) but I cannot get behind someone creating lupus or OCD for that matter.

        I read her books with the ‘take what works for me and leave behind the rest’

        Mike Dooley is another great one for the power of thoughts. Oh and Mike Robbins is someone I think you would really like Danny. His way of thinking could be a GREAT match for you.

  3. My internal self talk is my support system, I say mantras that are empowering, I also observe situations that take place every day and talk internally about them, the consequences and how or if I should say anything or let it go. Then there are periods thorughout the day when I stop talking and allow my mind to be silent, the silence is a great way for my mind to be at rest and to concentrate on what I am doing and to check in with my feelings and the world around me

      • I have moments of negative self talk, then I remind myself that what I am saying to myself, I would never say to those I love and I stop myself. It is work because of years of beliefs that I wasn’t good enough, but I am focused on being a better person every day and teaching others to do the same. Thank you for asking.

      • We have negative self-talk because of our well-meaning family and friends that conditionalize love when we are children giving us the impression that we are only lovable when we meet their perception of who we should be. I lived with this most of my life. It wasn’t until I awakened and learned how to see myself as I truly am,, rather than this flawed image that I had from my earlier life. Negative self=talk in my way of believing now verbal abuse. Only self-love and determination to rise above the patterns of our past can we overcome this awful way of treating ourselves.

  4. My inner self never shuts up! Either it’s what needs cleaning that I’m unable to do, or what I’m going to write about, or a dozen other things, from what’s for supper, to what mistakes I have made in my lifetime, every little one. Right now, it is thinking about what I’m going to write and have for supper. Never just one thought though.

  5. As many others who wrote before me, my inner voice won’t stop blabbering no matter the time of day… From serious matters to what I’ll cook for dinner, and pretty much anything in between. But I think what makes it a little special is that I sometimes have conversations with people I miss, in my head. I don’t know if my silly mind thinks it’ll manage to send those thoughts to my imaginary interlocutor, but it happens regularly.
