Our insecurities are what result in the type of self-talk that cause us problems. Our insecurities stem from the fact that we’re vulnerable and that there’s much we don’t know about who we are and why we’re here. Our uncertainties create our insecurities.
Talking to ourselves can sometimes be helpful. The problem is when we dwell on negative things, rehearsing them over and over in our mind or under our breath.
Negative thoughts can change our perception of reality and make us feel terrible. Specifically, when we tell ourselves things that aren’t true, or when we obsess over things that aren’t going the way we want them to.
We have the power to create our own torment, but we also have the option of choosing peace. Choose peace.
