When Saying "I Love You" Isn't Enough

Many of us struggle day to day with negative self-talk, gremlins running around in our heads, repeating false beliefs about ourselves and others over and over again. And, we have all heard that loving ourselves is an important step in healing the hurts we have (whether they be from the loss of a relationship, abuse, or just the constant nagging of social norms or bullying of others). Sometimes, this can feel like a real uphill battle.

In this wonderful TedX, writer, director and speaker, Angela Shelton teaches how we can challenge the negative self-talk that keeps us feeling broken, weighed down, and despising ourselves. 

This is something I teach all of my clients, but I love her *squish* take on how we can change our thought patterns in a fun and light-hearted way. 

Ultimately, when we change our story about ourselves, this also carries over into how we think about others. Best pay off of all, we end up with more time to play, create, and connect.

Now that you have learned how to challenge those negative thoughts, take it out into the world and practice loving yourself and others *squish* each day!
