Ep 204 – Why You’re Responsible for Your Second Thought and Not Your First Thought

One of the manifestations of growing up in a dysfunctional family is distorted thinking, so it is important that we learn that we are not responsible for these thoughts popping up. However, we ARE responsible for not listening to them. This week’s episode 204 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about why you’re responsible for your second thought and not your first thought!

In this episode of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I’m sharing the tools I gained from recovery that helped me reframe my thoughts and the method I use to make sure that I am feeling my feelings, not just soothing them. 

You are powerless over your first thought. You are not powerless over your second thought and over what comes out of your mouth. Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on living a more whole life and to hear even more about the points outlined above.
