WHY WE THINK BEATING OURSELVES UP IS EFFECTIVE
Perfectionistic mindset – one of the toxic side-effects of believing our worth is based off our performance. “Why Perfectionism Prevents You from Being Confident” > listen to the episode at www.trishblackwell.com/335
We measure the wrong things.
Measurement by looking outward instead of looking inward.
It’s a lack of belief and self-trust … that we doubt our ability to show up, to follow-through and that our efforts can be multiplied.
WHY SELF-CRITICISM DOESN’T WORK (AND WHAT IT’S REALLY DOING TO YOU)
The more pressure we put on ourselves, the more poorly we typically do.
The art of freedom is to live without being restrained … and pressure restrains us.
Personal example: Pressing myself and shaming myself to stop overeating and binge eating. The self-hatred I had about changing my body was the mean push I thought I needed to actually change. The harder I pushed, the meaner I was, the worse I felt and the more I swang in the pendulum.
HOW TO STOP BEATING YOURSELF UP AND HOW TO USE THE STRATEGY OF BEING NICE TO YOURSELF AS A WAY TO ACTIVATE CHANGE
Be radical – dare to try something different.
-Admit that what you’re doing isn’t working.
Look for modules to emulate
-Be inspired, study their example
-You’re not actually a nice person if you’re not first nice to yourself
Get comfortable with being uncomfortable
-It’s going to feel weird, and like you’re doing something wrong; like it shouldn’t have been this easy and this obvious

LISTENER OF THE EPISODE:
Excellent email my soul sister!
- You are good at doing hard things.
Haha….ain’t that the truth… but the immediate question this drew up was “but am I good at allowing things to be easy?”
Life in balance, I’ve proven (over & over again), that I am terrific at doing hard things,
but I’m not so great at not doing.
We are human beings, not human doings…
I have to keep reminding myself of that!
Thanks for this email and everything else that you offer the world
Sparkle on soul sister!!
