Raising awareness towards negative self talk

Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

Everywhere you turn, there's pictures and commercials with what society considers, perfectly chiseled men and women. As a result some people feel self conscious about their appearances. Tonight our Tanya Modersitzki shows us how a Billings couple is bringing awareness to negative self talk. 

The idea sparked during Rebecca Douglas' Fit Body Bootcamp session. What they learned while shaping up is that the things they would say to themselves are the kinds of things they would never say to anyone else.

"People bury these huge wounds and those manifest in their lives in the most destructive ways possible," Danielle Engew said.

It's a project bringing together loved ones where all are left transparent and vulnerable.

"If we can take what's going on inside of the mind and and the heart and bring a voice to it. and feel how that feels. how icky that feels to actually put a voice behind our emotions it, might bring to light exactly what we do to ourselves," Douglas said.

On a day to day basis, many of us walk around with our heads held high. But then there's that little voice in the back of our heads that makes us become our own worst enemy. Taking a seat in these chairs, that enemy will be exposed and the pairs of people will start the healing process, a healing process from ourselves.

"We're giving these women and any gentleman that want to participate an opportunity to give those wounds a voice," Engew said.

The film is called the empowerment project. Douglas calls negative self talk an epidemic. Something that will limit you from reaching goals.

"We are the biggest bullies to ourselves, but if we can't bring forth those horrible hateful words to somebody that we care about then why would we allow this within ourselves," Douglas said.

"Become unafraid of the wounds we carry and the ugliness we tell our self. We can't get it out of society, we can't get it out of our families, we can't get it out of abuse patterns," Engew said.

After exposing their deepest, darkest thoughts about themselves, the participants say they feel like a whole new person.

"Most of the times it's when I'm alone that I feel that way," Sharli Kiner said.

"This whole project regurgitated feelings that I don't want to think about I don't want to admit I say those things about myself," Lisa Gardener said.

They will be filming this project all weekend long. If you're interested in seeing the final project, keep an eye on Fit Body Bootcamp's Facebook page.
