I realized reading Week 1 of THE ARTIST’S WAY that most of my negative self-talk isn’t modeled on how other people talked to me (I was blessed with supportive friends, family, and educators) but rather on how my parents talk to themselves. My kid said “Get it together, M” to himself the other day which I know is something he’s heard me say to myself. I’m trying to speak to myself more kindly for his sake as well as my own.
