Brene Brown said, “Talk to yourself like you would to someone you love.”  So, the question I have for you at this point of our journey together is, “How do you currently talk to yourself?  And if it isn’t like you would to some you love, are you willing to shift how you talk to yourself to a more loving expression, even if you don’t believe you deserve it, for whatever reason?”  If you're withholding self-soothing from yourself because you feel you don’t deserve it, you're listening to a story that just isn’t true; so change that station!!
