If you’re judging yourself for things you can’t control, or refusing to acknowledge your own genuine feelings, then yeah, you might be gaslighting yourself.
In other words, you might be setting yourself up to feel shit.
And I want you to stop.
I talked through some ideas on how to deal with your inner critic (and stop the self gaslighting) on the podcast. It’s a quick 5 min listen that I think might really help.
One more thing…
If you’re really struggling with your inner critic, I have something that might help. It’s a worksheet that I share with the members inside my signature running program, Run with Turia.
It’ll help you figure out how to turn the volume down on critical self talk (you know the type, the “you’re too old for this”, “you’ve let yourself go”, “you can’t do this” type of inner critic chat)
I thought you might find it useful too.
Just pop your details in the form below and I’ll send you a copy for free.
