How to Stop Being Mean to Yourself (Encore!)

3 Tools I Learned in Counseling to Manage Negative Self-Talk and Unhealthy Behaviorsd
Listen to this episode

The past few weeks at our house have been so busy that I’ve slipped into some negative self-talk and coping behaviors. Whenever this happens, I feel so frustrated with myself, thinking, “Rachel, you know better than this!  You’ve learned great strategies in counseling over the past six years to help you stay in the positive!”

That’s when I remind myself that recovery isn’t linear.  We can have little setbacks along the way, without being all the way back at the beginning.  Yes, I’ve come a long way since the beginning of my therapy journey, but I’m still learning and practicing–and that’s okay.

This Encore episode is as much as reminder for ME as it is for you.  I’ve recorded a new intro to tell you what’s going on in my life right now, and then I re-air what I consider to be one of the most important episodes I’ve ever published.

Whether or not you’ve listened to this episode before, I hope you will listen!
