When I’m coaching myself, one of my go-to tools is talking with my six year old self.
Sometimes I close my eyes and picture holding her on my lap, stroking her hair.
Sometimes I write her a letter.
The conversation changes depending on the circumstance I’m struggling with, but it always ends the same way.
I tell her this.
“Sweetheart, I love you. I will never let anything happen to you. I will always protect you. Don’t you worry. I’ve got both of us.”
Come join me for a private mini-session to learn more about this valuable exercise.
