You Are NOT Your Thoughts
“That was so stupid”
“I don’t know what I’m doing”
“I suck at this”
“I never catch a break”
“Her house (or kids...body...relationship...career) is so much better than mine.”
How many times have you had thoughts like this?
How many times have you stopped to question whether the thought was actually true?
You believe it. But, is it really true?
Thoughts are just sentences in our minds. Once we’ve had a thought over and over and over, it gets solidified in our brains and we believe it.
But just because we believe something doesn’t make it true-remember people used to think the world was flat!
When you are feeling low, negative, or less than start paying attention to what thoughts are running on a loop in your mind.
Ask yourself, is that thought true? Your brain will want to stay attached to that belief so likely you will say yes.
Then I invite you to take a deep breath and ask again. Can you know with certainty that this thought is true? Ask from a place of curiosity, not blame or shame and see what happens.
You are not your thoughts.
Thoughts are just sentences in your mind. You don’t have to believe them.
If you don’t think this is possible for you, come chat with me. I will help you identify some thoughts and we will question them together. Go here to book a consult.
