It’s time to break up with your toxic mind.
Have you ever had thoughts that drag you down, rather than lift you up? Thoughts that make you feel hopeless and stuck? You’re far from alone. Many people struggle with negative thoughts about themselves—and the world. But if your unrepentant ruminations are getting in the way of living your life, it’s time to tell your toxic mind to cut the crap. It’s time to stand up to your inner critic. And it’s time to show negative thoughts the door—once and for all.
Written by a psychotherapist and grounded in proven-effective mindfulness and cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), the irreverent, no-nonsense approach in this snarky—yet hopeful—guide will help you “ghost” your negative thoughts, put an end to toxic self-talk, and start living like a badass, with all the positivity and confidence needed to reach your goals.
Over time, negative self-talk can lead to more than just a pessimistic outlook on life. It can destroy your confidence; damage your relationships; and lead to anxiety, depression, and a host of other mental health conditions. It’s time to say, enough! This little book will give you the tools—and the courage
“Sh*t just got real! Katie Krimer expertly cuts through the BS with authentically practical strategies to tame the inner assh*le living in all of our heads.”
—Jodie Eckleberry-Hunt, PhD, ABPP, author of Move on Motherf*cker and Getting to Good Riddance
“One occupational hazard of being a psychotherapist is to rely too heavily on the question of ‘Why?’ Katie Krimer points out how our thoughts, among the most ephemeral of all phenomena, have a disproportionate gravitational pull on our experience of ourselves in the world. She offers alternative and practical suggestions to chip away at these persistent, limiting, and destructive thoughts, mercifully delivered in an easy-to-swallow manner. (I just wish I knew what sh*t meant…).”
—Paul R. Fulton, EdD, director of the certificate program in mindfulness and psychotherapy at the Institute for Meditation and Psychotherapy, part-time faculty in the department of psychiatry at Harvard University, and coeditor of Mindfulness and Psychotherapy
