Making Peace With Those Voices In Your Head
- Category: Blog
We all have them…welcome to being human, welcome to being female.
Often those voices are snarky, and negative, rarely of praise and compliment.
Those internal conversations tend to be one sided and slowly lull us into the pit of shame, the caldron of fear. And, when those voices start to creep into how we feel about ourselves, our bodies respond by extremes; over eating or not eating, sleeping too much or getting up multiple times during the night. We experience unexplained fatigue or feeling restless and distracted all the time.
For some, shopping therapy will be the distraction of choice, even if it’s online at midnight, and then we keep inviting that faceless monster back for an additional dose of mental cruelty by having physical proof we are out of control with our money; we just spent $300 at LL Bean online for winter clothes during the summer. Why do we even have the internal dialogs? Where do those conversations come from?
