Today’s an interesting topic ——— I’m going to talk about self-heckling and the broken self esteem that comes as a result of it.
Self-heckling is that constant voice inside our head, that says things like…
“of course, you couldn’t do that”,
“someone else would do it better than you”
“you’re a failure”
This leaves us or our children and us feeling less than, like we don’t matter or that everyone is better than us so why bother trying. If this is an area that you or your child struggle with listen in as I talk about how to recognize that heckling voice, share ways to learn how to control it, and teach about what it is we need to put in its place once we stop it from heckling.
