Listen carefully, I will say this only once.

We all probably have words in our heads, maybe not always, but at times of uncertainty and stress. I can’t imagine any healthy mind is always confident and certain, some of us perhaps just project these qualities more efficiently than others. As the old adage goes, never meet your heroes, the will have feet of clay (a few old adages there, but nothing like a wisdom montage to kick off the weekend!)

The point is, everyone has imperfections and awarenesses of their own shortcomings, regardless of what we see from outside. Its easy to feel inadequate and to judge ourselves harshly, and at times cruelly, with the words we say to ourselves internally. Sometimes these words are given to us through the negative and stupid feedback with receive from others, and these words are particularly difficult to get rid of now and then.

So, a little strategy I sometimes employ is to make these destructive words quite inert by repeating them in a range of silly voices. Try it for yourself.

Personally, I’m a big fan of HM the Queen (do the wave), Mr Bean, any muppet, and any character from ‘Allo, ‘Allo. My particular cultural background, but what are the powerful voices of fun that you might use to diminish the destructive force of negative self talk that you may be carrying around?
