  • Mariel Hemingway: Coming into her own | Esperanza - Hope To Cope
    you tell your story in order to let your story go Silence really helps you get to a place where you can process who you are and let go of the things that are kind of constant reruns in your head those looping thoughts that one gets The voice that is you I ve talked about the small voice that doesn t give us a break in the back of our minds That voice is not the truth of us It s just a lie that we tell ourselves We can break that spell by becoming conscious of it You can do it through therapy I did it through yoga and learning to really sit with myself and be truthful But if you need a therapist if you need to talk to somebody to get there absolutely It s not easy I did a lot of journaling and self exploration Once you start opening up to that part of yourself and hear the voice that is not you and distinguish the voice that is not you from the voice that is you it s really liberating Some people may need help That s why I did the movie Running From Crazy that s why I write books to say Here are some tools to help you understand yourself and find a place of balance Trusting yourself Even before leaving my very long marriage and meeting Bobby I was ready to be myself I still felt like there was somebody outside myself who was going to have an answer for me What Bobby did for me sometimes you do need a person to go Hey you re fine the way you are It happened when we were rock climbing one day I was always saying Thank you for this thank you for that I appreciate it so much He said Stop thanking me You re making the choices You re doing this And it was such a metaphor for my life That was the shift in my self esteem I realized I was able to give myself what I need I knew that intellectually but I hadn t really embraced it fully I feel strong as me and I can honestly say I like me but it s been a very long journey And I think it s a long journey for many people Doing the work Finding balance is an everyday journey I work on my stuff every day It doesn t mean that because I have a scheme or because I m balanced or because I feel good I don t have moments when I m sad and need to remind myself that s not who I am We re human beings and we work all the time to create balance and harmony within ourselves People think There must be a pill out there that I can take and make everything better Ultimately lifestyle has to be integrated into the mental health equation but you have to do it It s not an easy fix It s a process It s a journey of self discovery And maybe sometimes it means you need the medication to get through the bumpy road of it but during that time get on a program that nourishes you mentally physically and emotionally Reviewing your day It s really helpful right before you go to sleep It s going through your entire day and seeing how you could maybe make different choices My daughter called and I wasn t paying attention next time I can close my computer and really listen And it s a great way to program the following day I picture or say in my mind the day that I want to have I m going to have a day full of energy I m going to allow things to be positive whatever somebody needs If I have a speaking engagement I m going to be totally connected with the audience I go over and over it in my mind before I fall asleep and it s unbelievably powerful The power of silence I think probably the most important thing for me is taking time to be quiet every single day When I m disciplined about that all the other stuff is probably equally as important but I know that has transformed me I would say learning how to be mindful sit in stillness and breathe and just be aware of yourself Allow yourself to be aware of your breath as it comes and goes That s been incredibly transformative for me We re all extraordinary Low self esteem is something that we carry with us from childhood I was the youngest and I was trying to please everybody I never felt like the person people saw me as I felt very insecure and very inadequate What I know now is that we re all extraordinary and we re all balanced somewhere inside of us It s just really embracing that knowledge Letting go of the past Memories can t hurt you When there s fear there s depression there s sadness just to remember that time doesn t create more sadness One of the things I ve learned is that you can delve into something and it won t hurt you again In fact it s very liberating Connecting with nature We say to people who don t have the ability to have a garden do a windowsill of herbs Grow something in a pot You can still breathe if you re living in an apartment or a condo You can still learn to be connected Nature is the water we drink It s walking on a path in bare feet It s everything we do These answers have been edited for length and clarity Mariel Hemingway calls it the family curse a heritage of alcohol abuse mental illness and suicide going back several generations Fear that the family demons might overtake her and perhaps her two daughters drove Mariel
