Should Stop Shoulding!

Updated: Nov 18, 2019

I am thinking about should, must, and have to.

Notice how often we use these words, and why we use them.


I should go to work.

I have to start going to the gym.

I should eat healthy.

I have to exercise.


These words tell us so much about our relationship with ourselves... one that's filled with self-hatred, shame, guilt, and/or fear.


If we start to become aware of them and notice them with curiosity and not with judgement, how will the stories we tell ourselves about ourselves change!


Every time I happen to mention any of these words, I pause, curiously smile, and then continue saying what I wanted to say.


That practice helped me a lot become consciously aware of my relationship with myself.


This awareness is enough to shift your relationship with yourself to a more empathetic, kind and loving way.


From now on, I should stop saying should!


God! I am saying it again! 😅


Yours in Magic,

Naser
