Want to worry less? Become aware of your negative self-talk: “whispered lies” such as, “Oh, this is just so awful.” “I can’t handle this.” “I need to fix (situation/person) right now.” “I can’t be happy until (situation/person) changes.” “I’ll never be able to do that.” or “I wish I hadn’t . . .”
Stressful thoughts like these scare us so much that we end up with life-threatening illnesses, or we find ourselves too preoccupied to give love and attention to our family or friends. Not a recipe for happiness!
How do we overcome our whispered lies so we can find peace, wisdom, and fulfilling relationships?
