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,
