Watch That Language

ACT is based on the notion that language (story) can help us move toward AND language can get us stuck.

One way to think of this is that we all have lots of stories we tell ourselves. Some of these stories are very short. For example, you might think, "I can't do anything right, I'm worthless." That's a little story. You might also think, "I'm really good at doing stuff like this!" Again, a little story.

Both of those stories carry a bit (or a lot) of hook, and either can be followed by a toward or an away move.

From and ACT - the Matrix point of view you might notice the story, notice the hook, and the next move, Toward or Away.

Be Well,
