When we say the magic word STOP, our brain forces us to take a break and re-evaluate the situation.Another very effective way to eliminate negative self-talk, is to replace it with a positive self- talk.
Many people feel stuck in their lives and blame their stuck state on something external to them that “causes” them to feel stuck. That something can be arbitrary, such as “unhappy childhood”, an “unpleasant event”, a sense of incapability or any other “obstacle” that is seen as external to oneself. It feels bad and it feels real. It is so real sometimes that the entire moment right now is defined by the block.
