In my therapy groups, we often talk to each other about self talk. In general, people in my groups talk more kindly to each other than they talk to themselves.
I don’t know why so many good people have such harsh inner critics, resulting in negative self talk. I do know we can learn to talk to ourselves differently — with respect, kindness, and love.
And if we practice positive self talk, we’re more likely to talk more positively to others.

I waved all my fingers toward Massachusetts, Ann, in honor of the day!
