Your life matches your story

podcast Feb 09, 2021


 Can't listen? Here's the transcript: 

So sometimes how I pick the topic of my podcast is that I will be working with a client, and I will say something, and the client will say “omg I have to write that down.” and then I say, “oh yeah!  I have to write that down too!”  

Remember, I am my own student of Dethroning Your Inner Critic.  So sometimes the things that I say are the things that I most need to learn.  And that is what happened yesterday, so this is what I am talking about today-- how the story you tell about yourself affects your life.  

Your life story is not a biography of the facts and events of your life. It's actually the way you have interpreted those facts inside your own head and tried to make sense out of them.  Most people don’t know that the story of their life isn’t based on facts.  Most people believe that their thoughts are facts.  And when you believe that...

Here is a question to consider. 

Who would you be without your thoughts? 

In fact, who is the person you call “I” who is listening to this podcast right now? 

I know that is a deep question to consider.  But it points to an idea that most people are unaware of- and that is that we are addicted to our thoughts without realizing it.  We continually look to our thoughts for our experience of our lives-- for what satisfies us, what dissatisfies us, what we should and shouldn’t be doing in our lives, how other people should be behaving.  And no one really talks about this in terms of addiction-- we only use the word addiction when we are talking about substances we use to numb ourselves to our uncomfortable emotions-- like drugs, alcohol, food, sex, work, exercise.  But that doesn’t mean that the only way addiction can manifest is from substances.
