I came to this revelation a while ago with certain phrases I used as well. I think I’ve used “Crushing it” once in a while but it didn’t sit well with me either in all honesty. What I did find unnatural for me was the phrase “Take a step back”. It didn’t make sense I was saying it because it suggests this sense of progress and then analyzing that process by “taking a step back”. I think that was one thing that kept me paralyzed from progress for such a long time paired up with a lot of other things in my life at the time. It puts into perspective how powerful our own words can be.
