For instance: the importance of listening to how you talk to yourself …your ‘self-talk’. That in itself will reveal a whole lot about how you feel about yourself, about others, and about life.
How many old tapes do you continue to play in your mind? You know, the negative thoughts you have about yourself, perhaps ‘recorded’ by others by what they spoke to you, or how they treated you. If you don’t stop playing them you’ll end up with a victim mentality, and that won’t help at all. To the contrary. Rather, I encourage you to not only turn off the tape player, but throw those darn tapes away!
I had to throw a whole bunch of tapes away years ago, and…I had to get a new set of ‘tapes’ to replace them. Believe it or not, after trying some positive mental attitude books, which really only touched surface areas, I started taking a serious look at the Bible and then searched for a good, safe group of people who were sincerely seeking to understand and know God, and who were finding real answers. I mean real answers. I asked alot of questions, and well, the end result is – I got a whole new set of tapes! Not a set of religious rules of do’s and don’ts, but a renewing of my mind, and a healing of my emotions, that is as real as this planet we all stand on.
That’s why we’ve included soul and spirit, not just body, in this ‘self-care’ section of WOMANTalk. We understand that women want real answers to every area of their lives.
