The damaging word every overthinker uses

Gabrielle Treanor


Today's Episode

There’s one little word that we use all the time and by doing so we make ourselves feel bad in so many ways. That word is ‘should’. You should do this, you should be that, you shouldn’t feel this. It’s laden with obligation, shame and an absence of choice, whether we use it in our self-talk or when someone uses the word in conversation with us.

In this episode we look at:

  • How we use ‘should’ in everyday life
  • What messages we’re giving ourselves when we use it
  • Why we think it can help us but it’s actually harming us
  • What language we can replace ‘should’ with that gives us choice and autonomy
