As we grow up, there are many ideas that we pick up along the way. Some of these ideas can be harmful to our emotions. Imagine growing up in a household where your parents made you feel worthless and then trying to achieve success. This can be the heart of conflict within, preventing success in your life. Or perhaps you had a teacher who told you that you would never amount to anything in front of your class. While these voices still haunt you, they aren’t your words.
These words form your inner critic or your subconscious mind. The inner critic isn’t necessarily bad if it is supportive of your growth. However, if it is replaying old lousy news repeatedly, it could harm your emotions and become the source of depression and dependency issues.
This month, I’m sharing “Healing Your Emotional Self” by Beverly Engel. I like this book because she helps you get down to the heart of where all this negative self-talk stems from and seeks to correct it. She mainly points out that your parents are the source of this programming. So much of the low self-esteem we experience comes from relationships with parents as children. Her book points out some of the roots of destructive emotions and advises how to start healing.
