67. STOP DESERVING LOVE: Flourishing Friday

Flourishing Friday (FF)-Welcome to Flourishing Fridays (FF), where every Friday we bring you a Positive Psychology-based life hack that will help you to flourish.  In these episodes we look at real life application of Positive Psychology, while giving you tips and strategies to put Positive Psychology into use in all areas of your life. 

You don’t need to DO something to be loved. We all hold internal conversations as we go through our days. Psychologists have identified these inner monologues as “self-talk,” in which you provide opinions and evaluations on what you’re doing as you're doing it. It is this inner voice. We can actually “hear” what your own self-talk is saying. However, when the voice is critical and harsh, the effect can be emotionally crippling.

Discover how Emiliya suggest you let go of some of your shadows. Deep down inside we have an “ouchy” experience that we hear and absorb. Consider what happens after you’ve done something embarrassing. This destructive type of self-talk causes you to question yourself and your worthiness of deserving love. 

What is something you say to yourself that hurts us. Think of this as a statement.

Let’s turn the situation around now:

What is a statement that you say to yourself? What else is a statement if someone would say to you that would hurt? Self statements such as I am not… Not pretty enough, good enough, man enough, etc. I am useless. 

Listen to this episode to discover how you can psychological reprogram and shift your prospective around deserving love. 

Bottom line, these are just a thought not my truth… We are NOT undeserving of love. We are love. So we need to stop de-serving-love. Go inside yourself. Discover what that is. Be with that statement. How does it make you feel like you are not deserving of love. Work through hearing and receiving your statement. 

You are love!
