HERE IS A QUICK ‘GO TO’ TILE FOR VALIDATING STATEMENTS.
Keep these on your screen saver, print them, and put them next to your bed, where you brush your teeth.
While we are changing our inner landscape, it takes a bit of time and perseverance, but I know from my own experience that it CAN be done.
The intention is that your loving inner parent uses these statements as a gift to your wounded inner child. Let your inner child know you hear and see them and then validate their experiences.
It is a powerful process.
Let me know how you go.
