“I’m completely broken.”
“No point in taking care of myself.”
Dr. Phil asks, “If that’s what you’re saying to yourself over, and over and over again, what possible outcome could you have?” Pointing out how powerful her internal dialogue is, Dr. Phil explains, “We don’t react to what happens in life; we react to what we say to ourselves about what happens in life … Grief is not a disease.
