How to get rid of your inner bitch voice?

Ooph, we can be mean to ourselves can’t we?! It almost always breaks my heart when I have the first session with my clients to hear the things they say about themselves.

We speak to ourselves in ways we would never, ever speak to anyone else. An important, in fact pivotal point in the body acceptance journey is being able to soften the inner dialogue but in order to start doing that we have to become familiar of the words we’re using against ourselves. This might take time, don’t worry. It may be that – like many of us — your self-critical voice is so common for you that you don’t even notice when it is present.

If you think about how long we’ve been saying these things to ourselves - it’s no wonder it’s going to take a bit of time to change them!

It’s fucking annoying right?! Doesn’t make you feel good and often leaves you missing out on something good.

Are you secretly making yourself feel bad with #inspo vibes

Yesterday I did a workshop and we were talking about social media. A girl said to the group that she fills her feed with fitness models as it motivates her to one day look like them. Maybe that works for her and doesn't trigger her to outwardly feel bad about herself, but I would just like to put it to you that if you’re always hoping to find happiness in a future version of yourself - that’s diet mentality! See, diet mentality is sneaky. It doesn’t always trigger you to feel outwardly shit about yourself but if you’re always thinking you could look better you’re forever telling yourself that you don’t like yourself how you are, right now.
