I think this will help me.

What about Randal Schaffer’s performance did you like?

His voice was clear and precise. It was an excellent choice for this book and I wouldn't hesitate to listen to him again.

Any additional comments?

I was provided a complimentary copy of this audio by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Ok, I think we can all say we've had negative thoughts about ourselves in one way or another. Personally I still think of things I did as a kid (and beyond) and think of how I could have done "whatever" differently. And of course I have moments where I forget something and yell at myself for being stupid. I don't usually beat myself up for long and for the most part I when I do something "dumb" I talk to myself in my head and then forget about. But of course sometimes there are things you just can't let go of. I'm not going to say what mine are (kinda personal) but usually those thoughts come in a torrent when I wake up at 2am for whatever reason and then I can't go back to sleep, then BAM, on come those thoughts.

Usually my method to try and clear my head is too picture a field, a pretty green field with colorful flowers and sunshine and butterfly's, and a little girl (basically me) running and having fun, not a care in the world. Honestly that doesn't work for long because my brain will stay on that thought for a minute and then flash to something else, and I have to consciously bring myself back to that sunny field. Sometimes I can fall back asleep, but more often than not I can't and I either end of lying their or listening to an audiobook hoping to distract my mind enough to nod off again.

But now I have another method to try after listening to "Self Talk." We are indeed our own worse critics and it's hard to stop. I've known about my own "self talk" for a long time, since I was a kid actually. Since I am an introvert and awkward in social settings, I was (and am) always talking to myself about being more open and out there. Not easy, let me tell you. But did just listen to Small Talk: How to Talk to People, Start Conversations, Improve Your Charisma, Social Skills and Lessen Social Anxiety and learned several techniques to try. :)

I'm not saying I am cured, but there are exercises in this book to help you work through some of your biggest negative thoughts. I've just listened to this audio once, but I will be doing it again and I will be taking notes and trying to work thru some of the exercises. I finished this story earlier today and I have been thinking about some of the tips or strategies mentioned ever since.

The narrator, I loved his voice. It reminded me of this actor, who's face I can see but the name is escaping me!!! Argh!!! When it comes to me I will be sure to update this. But I really loved his voice and since it sounded familiar, and I like the actor who's voice it sounded like, it felt comforting to hear him speak, like an old friend. Gah, talk about inner voice!! This is killing me.

I do recommend this and I look forward to listening to this again. I know it will help me if I practice and use the strategies outlined.
