48. Do You Appreciate You?
Do you appreciate you? Do you ever stop to delight in your funny little quirks, your gorgeous hair or calves, or your kind heart? I'm going to go out on a limb and say that you probably don't. If you do, it's not often enough.
It makes sense. If you have been called "unfit" or "unsafe" by the alienator (possibly your children too), the emotional part of your brain has likely been trying to solve for the accusations by becoming hyper-aware of all of your "defects". Since you feel like you've lost control of your custody situation -- your children's safety too -- oftentimes, the next place we turn to is ourselves. Some people overdrink. Others self-harm. No matter the behavior, we all seem to develop destructive self-talk.
In this episode, I give you 2 exercises (well, ONE, applied two different ways), to help you to retrain your thinking around this. So that you can begin to see all of your qualities as unique and truly AWEsome.
