Do you know these lyrics?You’re so mean When you talk About yourself You are wrong Change the voices In your head Make them like you Instead So complicated Look how big you’ll make it Filled with so much hatred Such a tired game It’s enough I’ve done all i can think of Chased down all my demons see you do the same
These were the words I heard during my cool down today. I don’t believe it’s any coincidence that this song…these words…came on just as I was at a point in my workout to hear them and reflect. This day I was supposed to hear them!!
I’ve got a big long diatribe of a post I plan to write around body image and how difficult it is to cultivate in our culture, particularly given what the health and fitness industry looks like today. But for now, I simply want you to know that starting to change how you think and talk to yourself is one of the best things you could do for your overall health. What you look like is such a tiny part of who you are. Your spark, your inside, your soul, is what makes you a worthwhile person. Try to remember that!
