Be Gentle With Yourself - You Deserve Better

Today I have three quick easy questions for you....

  1. Do you have a voice in your head?

  2. How do you talk to yourself, do you beat yourself up?

  3. Would you let anyone else talk to you, the way you talk to yourself?

If you answered yes to the first two questions and were surprised when you thought about it and found yourself saying "absolutely no way would someone else get away with speaking to me like that!" to question three, then this exercise is for you.

This exercise will help you to focus on the voice in your head, your mental chatter or the monkey on your back, whatever you call that little voice in your head that is your ego.


Pay attention to your thoughts, listen to the voice inside your head.

Is it calm or impatient?
Is it supportive or critical?
Is it loving or angry?
Is it approving or disapproving?
Is it encouraging or discouraging?
Is it positive or negetive?

How does it make you feel?

Remember you are not your thoughts, just an observer of them.
So by implementing this new strategy and simply observing your thoughts in this way, you can calm the mental chatter and develope a far more positive and happy voice inside your head.
