Our inner dialogue is powerful. Thoughts typically occur as words. Practice noticing what thought streams you are thinking by pausing often to make the inquiry. It is likely you will notice some repetitive themes. Observe if the words are kind and supportive or unkind and defeating. Our inner dialogue influences our emotions, so it is helpful to become conscious of the content. However, you wish to feel, create a brief present tense statement to affirm that feeling. For example: I am strong and steady. Moving forward with right intention. Responding lovingly. Keeping my cool. Speaking clearly. Have fun becoming your own advocate!
