Listening to my inner dialog has become one of my hobbies – and I am consistently surprised when I tune into what is being said between my ears. Sometimes it is humorous, and other times it is such an attention-grabber that it gives me pause.
Here’s an example. I heard inner dialog saying, “I can’t do that.” The word can’t jumped out at me. When I thought about it, considered the meaning of can’t, it occurred to me that the sentence was incorrect – I can do it, however, I won’t do it. And won’t has a different meaning than can’t.
Speculation won the toss-up and I began to wonder. Consistently saying I can’t sends a strong and incorrect message to the psyche – and that’s not
something I wish to continue doing. Granted, there are enumerable things I can’t do – I will use the word as it is intended.
For the rest, it is a choice, free will, a matter of selection and discretion – enter the word won’t. What’s being said in your inner dialog?
