We learn many of our inner dialogues from childhood. We may need to learn more empathic and constructive self-talk.
Speech or silence? Silence has its advantages: it teaches us to listen patiently. Equally, language can be healing, and help us to share our truth.
Who are you? You have a name, and so many labels others give you. But, spiritually, you don’t need the labels. Your presence is enough.
If I could hear inside your mind, what kind of self-talk would I hear? Are you choosing inner dialogues that support your mental health?
We can use our silences, and our speech, for good or ill. It takes a lot of mindfulness, and a lot of skill, to learn a good balance between self-control and self-expression.
How do you decide when to talk, and when to remain silent?
