You Are Not the Problem but You ARE THE ONE Who Holds the Key To Solving It
Your inner voices and their beliefs have been there for a long time, and nursing only makes them louder. You’re continually in an environment that affirms those beliefs. The beliefs that say…
There is something wrong with you
You are weak
You are incapable
You’re not good enough
These inner voices hold you back and keep you stuck in a fearful, anxious and depressed state.
These voices in your head can be critical, judgemental, and harsh and it’s normal to want to push that away and turn down the volume with distractions, substances, food, and busyness.
But the truth is that those voices are part of you and they want to be heard.
They often come from a fragile and fearful wounded part in you. Allowing them the opportunity to be held with compassion and understanding also allows them to rest, to ease off their frenetic and anxious pace.
Which means you can find ease, rest, and peace as well.
The problem is the conditioned belief that you are flawed and not good enough. These are core shame beliefs, and they are the biggest lie of your life.
I understand deeply the harsh critical voices that we as women can hold inside. I too have been under the trance of unworthiness, shame, and the depression it creates. But I navigated my way out of that muck to a clear view that has the true me back in the driver’s seat of my life. I’m no longer controlled by the conditioned beliefs that I’m not good enough. Instead I lead my life from the empowered space I desire for us all.
Understanding the various wounded parts of me has been the greatest revelation on my journey. The Inner Mad Woman is a big one of those parts. She, and so much more are visited as a part of the Nurse Rx Program and Community and hands down it is the greatest aha moment for all participants.
We’ve been so conditioned into this cycle of shame and unworthiness that we even hold shame about our shame. Shame isolates us from each other and then feeds on us in silence. But not anymore.
Getting to know your inner mad woman and connecting with others who are experiencing the same things allows that part of us to relax and to feel safe to let go. This is one of the greatest gifts that comes in the Nurse Rx Community.
“Learning about the mad woman was huge for me. I had never considered actually listening to her voice, instead I had always tried to push it away and drown it out. Giving her a voice actually helped me to get my own voice back.”
