HOW TO RETRAIN YOUR INNER VOICE AFTER VERBAL ABUSE?
Retraining your inner voice after years of being with an abuser who constantly invaded your true inner voice feeding it negatively, it will take practice and patience to learn to hear your own intuition and inner voice after you have been conditioned over time to ignore your own true perceptions.
Only you have the wisdom deep inside, that is compassionate and intelligent. Only you alone hold the key and the power to choose to perceive yourself and the world around you in a new way or in the way you once perceived them before the abuser invaded your inner voice.
Use these tips to help you retrain your inner voice:
Learn to Over-ride these Untrue Perceptions – Trust your intuition and listen to hear your own guiding voice. There are other voices in your head; negative, untrue invading voices but you need to be able to tell which one is your own. The ones that are true, and real, the ones that hold your true qualities and intelligence. It will take time but you will find it if you listen closely.
Learning what selfish and What’s Not – It is not selfish to set boundaries and to protect your emotional and mental health. Take the first step in doing what’s best for you, your brain and heart.
IGNORE these negative thoughts when it enters your mind
you are not good enough
you are inadequate
something is wrong with you
you do not deserve happiness
you have nothing special to offer anyone
you will just ruin it so why bother trying
Always remind yourself that those negative voices are NOT your own thoughts and you will be able to tell because they do not support who you truly are. Remember you were conditioned to ignore your true inner voice by your abuser.
