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

The past few weeks at our house have been so busy that I’ve slipped into some negative self-talk and coping behaviors.

    I loved this podcast and needed to hear it, badly. I can relate soooo much. It’s almost like listening to my own story, from the excessive exercise and starvation in college, to now being the heaviest in my life through binge eating my way through the last 4 years of postpartum depression, the illness of my father and my husband being out of work for almost a year. Try as I may, I always seem to revert back to the all or nothing and mean thinking. I’m a lot better with it now that I’m older, but still have a ways to go. So, thank you for being willing to share your story. I personally, greatly appreciate it. I love your podcast.
