You know the voice in your head who habitually berates you and catalyzes a stream of negative thinking? The voice who feeds you poisonous thoughts, like:
𝚈𝚘𝚞’𝚛𝚎 𝚗𝚘𝚝 𝚐𝚘𝚘𝚍 𝚎𝚗𝚘𝚞𝚐𝚑.
𝚈𝚘𝚞’𝚛𝚎 𝚗𝚘𝚝 𝚜𝚖𝚊𝚛𝚝 𝚎𝚗𝚘𝚞𝚐𝚑.
𝚈𝚘𝚞’𝚛𝚎 𝚗𝚘𝚝 𝚍𝚎𝚜𝚎𝚛𝚟𝚒𝚗𝚐 𝚘𝚏 𝚕𝚘𝚟𝚎.
𝙴𝚠. 𝙸 𝚑𝚊𝚝𝚎 𝚢𝚘𝚞.
𝙽𝚘𝚋𝚘𝚍𝚢 𝚕𝚒𝚔𝚎𝚜 𝚢𝚘𝚞.
That’s your inner mean girl. She’s hostile and apathetic and controlling. She loves to make you feel small and create upheaval, because that’s when she’s most powerful. She doesn’t want to see you happy; she wants to see you sit in misery. And she’s been pretty successful at putting you in that seat.
All she has to do is get loud enough and fill your head with noise so you become completely incapable of blissful thinking.
Baby girl, it’s time to put her in her seat. I want you to stand up for yourself and tell her to shut the fuck up. You don’t have to listen to her or let her words constrict you. You can stand your ground, instead of allowing her to push you down the cascade of self-sabotaging thoughts.
You are not the things she tells you. Reclaim your power and come back to center. Breathe. You are not your thoughts. You are you. You are life. And you are light.
Anytime she tries to re-enter your life (and she will), tune her out and come back to your breath. Return to the infinite power of the truth and the present moment.
