Positive Thinking and the Bathroom Mirror

“My body is unlovable,” a woman states. “How do you react when you believe that thought?” asks Byron Katie. “I have a hard time breathing,” the woman observes. “I’d rather be dead.”

Watch as this courageous woman questions her stressful thoughts about what is too fat and what is acceptable. “If you believe in basic kindness, it’s your job to catch those thoughts and get real,” Katie says. “Not get positive, get real, because positive thinking doesn’t cut it when you look in the mirror.”

  2. For once I was in my best shape ever (it hadn’t been like that always), that was until I had to make a very nasty remark to my sister about hers; out of spite for what I considered was her being very mean to me.

    When I was in my best shape, and she wasn’t, all she could say about it was: “it is as if you are passing me all those extra kilos”. Kind of shocking, it never occured to me one could pass weigh onto another being.
    Now that I come to think about it, could it be all this loathing onto one another that gets us over or underweight?
