The Power of Self Talk

What we say to ourselves is enormously powerful, especially in moments of extreme emotional distress. If we can practice using helpful "maintain mottos", we can retrain our brains to see ourselves as resilient, as capable of making it through hardships.

Do any of the sayings below resonate with you? If not, how could you modify one of the saying to make it closer to something you might repeat to yourself when you are upset?

This is a skill that is used in cognitive behavioral therapy, which I use in my counseling practice. If you think this might be useful for you, contact me and set up an appointment.
