#inner Dialogue

My thought is how important inner self talk is in the recovery process of anxiety, panic attacks, social phobia, etc. It takes some practice, some time, but not as much time as it takes to get to where our illness has immobilized us in some way. It involves paying close attention to what anxiety is negatively trying to have you BELIEVE as TRUE,. And at that Moment your positive inner coach is going to say things like " that statement is NOT TRUE, or " I will be fine" or " These feelings WILL NOT hurt me" etc. Etc.. be stern when you say these positive affirmations to yourself. You can make up your own affirmations that you feel are easy to say, as long as you are consistent every day. You are not fighting against your negative thoughts, you are just becoming the " Pilot" of your thought plane and not just a passenger. Your becoming the " Conductor" of your symphony of thoughts and not just a good listener any longer. YOUR taking back CONTROL of your train of thoughts, NOT with agression, but by re- directing them. It works! You have nothing to lose and EVERYTHING to gain. 🙂

Self esteem, becoming self determining #inner strength

I am hearing so much about folks trying to please others and meet unreasonable demands at Christmas. I just want to mention a few things that help, even if none of these christmas projects are simplified. First, is simple affection, praising one another, listening to one another, spacing out the activities with time outs.  Dad did not let us talk when we had the fire in the fireplace.  We did the same thing every year, ate the same food, and everyone always knew what would be going on and how long it would take.  We divided the activities between the more religious, on christmas eve, and the party like Christmas day.  We sang Christmas carols, exchanged names for gifts, and talked about others who need our charity and love during these troubled times.  We took walks after every meal, and wrote down our best wishes for all to see.
