Your negative inner voice is a total assh*le. Tell it to f*ck off with this irreverent, laugh-out-loud guide!
I’m not good enough. This shouldn’t be happening. Things never work out for me. When we’re anxious, stressed, or fearful, the negative voice in our heads can be extremely powerful. It tells us we’re not smart or attractive enough. It berates us for our mistakes. And it keeps us feeling stuck in an endless loop of worry, shame, and hopelessness. But there is a way to shut it down. Blending evidence-based cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, and profanity, this unexpected guide will show you how to respond to your negative inner voice with one very important phrase: Move on, mother*cker (MOMF)!
With MOMF, you’ll learn to manage worry and anxiety, put a stop to unhelpful internal dialogue, and approach new situations with humor, levity, and perspective. You’ll also find real tools to help you:
Set personal and professional boundaries
Identify toxic or codependent relationships
Become assertive without being aggressive
Stop seeking perfection
This book also includes journaling and other self-awareness exercises to help you put MOMF to work every day. So, stop letting your inner voice tear you down. With this fun and effective guide, you’ll learn how to take control of your negative thoughts and get back to living your best life.
“Move On Motherf*cker (MOMF) is a modern, efficacious self-help tool kit designed to provide relief for people with common mental health issues surrounding depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, bad habits, and personal or work-related relationship problems. Readers will discover how to change and improve problematic behavior patterns and negative thoughts through a series of compelling vignettes, exercises, and self-reflections without getting lost in the weeds of therapeutic psychobabble. It’s a ‘hell-yes,’ hands-on, user-friendly approach to begin feeling empowered to get better.”
—Timothy Jay, PhD, professor of psychology emeritus at Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts, and author of Why We Curse
“Honest, salty self-talk can be a true balm for anxiety, shame, sadness, and despair. So take it from one motherf*cker to another: move on, and read this book!”
—Sarah Knight, New York Times bestselling author of Calm the F*ck Down
“MOMF is like that blunt friend who calls you on your sh*t and puts things into f*cking perspective. Using humor, a lot of profanity, and the foundation of cognitive behavior therapy (CBT), Eckleberry-Hunt’s book guides readers through a reality check, and teaches them to change the voice of negativity and doubt to that of a motherf*cker who is ready to kick ass! This is a readers guide to self-empowerment!”
—Britt A. Nielsen, PsyD, ABPP, associate professor of psychiatry and psychology at The MetroHealth System and Case Western Reserve University
