J's Words


J graciously agreed to share her script and tapped again for me this morning, very slowly, so I could type her phrases.


Even though I hate myself, I'm a totally great kid.

Even though I hate myself, my mom totally loves me.

Even though I hate myself, I can have a good attitude.

Even though I hate myself, I can think positive thoughts.

Even though I hate myself, I can say positive words.

Even though I hate myself, my mom totally accepts me.

Even though I hate myself, I can have a good day.

Even though I hate myself, I can take care of my body.

Even though I hate myself, I can be responsible and respectful.

Even though I hate myself, I can have a good attitude.

Even though I hate myself, I can be nice to everyone including my mom.

Even though I hate myself, I can accept myself.


me: When she first started tapping this script, she couldn't say "I'm a totally great kid."  She had to tap several times a day for a week or so until she was able to say it.


Now she's added:

Even though I hate myself, I love myself.

She totally cracks me up when she does it because it's obviously accidental but it means that she's coming to believe that she is lovable.

My heart melts when she says it.

Can you say, "r.e.g.u.l.a.t.i.o.n.?"  Yeah, we got it going on.....  Amazing how that happens....

Interview with J:

Me: So why do you think this script works so well for you?

J: Because I hated myself so much.

Me: Why didn't you tell me that you hated yourself so much?

J:  I really didn't want you to know that I felt that way and I was ashamed of myself for feeling this way.

Me: What do you think made you hate yourself?

J: The past made me hate myself.  I didn't think anyone could possibly love me.

Me: Do you still hate yourself?

J: A little bit.  I think I should keep on doing this tapping until I totally believe in myself.

Me: How do you feel after you do this script?

J: I feel lots better.  I feel really heavy before I do it but after I tap I feel light as a feather.

Thank you J and Lisa!!! My daughter has been feeling this way about herself a lot lately. This may be a big help to her.

So glad she was willing to share. These are wonderful! And "even though I hate myself, I love myself" makes perfect sense to me!
