Changing Self Talk
“You’re stupid,” crept into my mind. For years this was the soundtrack that continuously played in my head.
“No you’re not. You just made a simple mistake,” I said.
“Wow, I am changing,” I thought.
I wasn’t sure how to change my self-talk for a long time. Slowly, I began repeating acclimations and positive reinforcements. I wondered if it was doing any good because I could tell a difference.
This continued for years and I wondered if the negative self-talk would ever debate. Finally, after all of this time I was seeing the change.
I knew I couldn’t take all of the credit. I went through all of the exercises, but the greatest change came from God. He was changing me in ways I could never change myself.
