Four movies into the month, fifth one I'll watch later tonight, and not a single one of them has been good. Yes, spoiler alert, I thought this movie was not very good. Haunted house horror movies are an intriguing subgenre to me because, quite frankly, it's hit or miss, more often than not.
You should set yourself on fire! Eventually, I reached out to the wider world. The kind words of friends near and far gave me space to breathe. While I still suffered daily I had room enough inside my head to truly think and address my demon.
I started to take steps to strengthen myself. I downloaded a book on depression and anxiety. I started exercising again and taking my Zoloft regularly.
I poured over articles about self-hatred and depression. I read and reread blog-posts, psych articles and Tiny Buddha entries hoping that I could find something that could bring me out of the dark.
I discovered helpful information and testimonials. None were silver bullets but it was in the midst of scouring this information that I came to see my battered soul and the destructive voice of self-hatred in a new way.
It came to me late one night after reading an article that talked about how hateful inner voices often say things to us that we would never dream of saying to others. Often, we treat ourselves worse than we treat those around us.
What if I gave a human shape to my beleaguered soul? My imagination kicked in.
I gave my inner self hair, eyes, ears, a nose, a mouth and a bruised and cut body. I saw my battered, injured soul as a person. A tortured individual who had been locked away and attacked for years within me.
In my imagination, I saw myself walk to this poor man's cell, unlock his door unfasten his shackles and embrace him. Now, when I feel a surge of negative emotions coming on I turn to the nearest empty chair or space and visualize my hurt self in that emptiness.
In my mind, I ask if he is alright and if he needs anything. I treat him as a friend in need. I've been coping better with self-hatred by envisioning my inner self as a beaten and maimed person who needs to be nurtured and healed.
I've also come to see the part that hates me as another tragic figure. Perhaps, but a wounded enemy acting out of uncertainty, doubt and lack of confidence. I am wary of him but I do not hate him. I can't allow myself too. In my experience, hating ones own self-hatred does nothing but empower it.
Sometimes, when I hear him attacking my long suffering self, I tell him firmly to stop. I explain to him that he has no place here and tell him that while I am obliged to stop him I won't allow myself to despise him as I used to.
This is usually enough for him to leave us alone and he departs with his head hung low. Since I've adopted this approach, my world has become considerably brighter.Sep 09, · Watch video · "From the bottom of my heart, I apologize to Christy.
