When I do thought downloads, I’m amazed at how quickly they go negative. It makes me realize how much I’m subconsciously beating myself up all day. Then I think “No wonder I’m so exhausted all the time!” I would never talk to my friends or family members the way I’m talking to myself. Yet it’s still happening below the surface.
I realize I have a lot of work to do on this. I want to treat myself as well as I know I deserve to be treated. I wouldn’t let someone else talk to me this way.
When I’m working at this on a deliberate model, I can choose to think all of the neutral or supportive thoughts about myself, but the negative ones are still clearly there when I do my thought downloads. Do I just need to be patient with the process? Is there anything I should be considering?
If the circumstance is “negative self-talk,” what are some good thoughts to put in the T line?
