I am sure you do it just as much if not more than I do… What is that you are wondering. Well it is bad-talking your body. Telling your body how you should be able to do more stuff, be able to sleep less, be more beautiful, have less pain blah blah blah. Of course when you are in pain it seems like your body is a big let-down and I am sure you do not hesitate to tell your body that. You know your words you use 🙂
I know I have had my fair share of bad talking my body and it is a really a very hard habit to break. Every time I think something against my body now I say cancel or delete to leave room for the positive. I am not 100% with it. It is a work in progress and I am still making a diligent effort.
I agree it seems quite trivial that you would have to worry about something like what you say to your body. However, your body is a living breathing organism and it honestly does listen to you. It is like having a parent that constantly tells you what you are doing wrong and what a letdown you are and then expects you to exceed expectations and do amazing things when you are feeling down in the dumps and worthless. It honestly just does not happen that way and it does not happen that way with you body either.
Of course there are things in your body that you want to improve and there are things in your body that are working superbly without any encouragement from you. Maybe a bit of recognition is in order to allow those good things in your body to shine forth. Acknowledge and appreciate your body and see how much it helps you to relieve your pain. That is the ultimate goal after all… to get rid of this constant pain. Let your body help you with that process but first you have to make an effort to be nice to it.
