Did you know that the word “should” is inherently negative; using this word results in feelings of inadequacy, anxiety, frustration, and self-rejection?
Beating ourselves up for what we should have done, or telling ourselves who we should be, is akin to fighting an enemy within us. It drains our energy from other tasks and perpetuates a negative self-talk cycle.
The bigger issue - think about how many times, per day, you dwell in the "shoulds" or "should haves." I would venture to guess a lot. I have worked really hard this year to be more aware of using this word, working to eliminate it from my life. In this episode, I shed some of the deep aftermath the word causes and how you, too, can work to eliminate this setback word.
