How can the data highway be overwritten?
I know the facts in question, and I'm registering these "old thought patterns," but unfortunately there are no concrete tips/new beliefs. It doesn't help me like that.
I knew these facts in a disconnected manner of science and study of human growth and development.
As I’ve expressed to others, I appreciate listening to others express in their own words, inflection, tones, and creative manner and receive new deeper understanding and gain something new and make new connections. Thank you very much for this. It helped me.
Changing core beliefs
I learned that the negative messages we perceive childhood , become part of our internal dialogue and May affect our self-esteem as adults.
Childhood trauma
I learned that the title of ‘shame & guilt’ placed upon me like a crown at 4 years old is where this all began…..and how the shame and not good enough has plagued me. I can now choose positive thoughts and learn a new way of thinking of myself!❤️I am worthy.
Building Healthy Core Beliefs
This could have been made for me. Every word hit home. From a critical unloving father & an abusive husband I learned to believe I really had no self worth. My family is very cold. No touching, hugging, kissing. As a result I crave intimacy. I hug everybody. I love helping people. I love having people around me. I open my home to anyone who wants to stay. Sometimes I seek intimacy from the wrong people.
I noticed that my inner beliefs are very negative
I can reprogram my mind. Those inner thoughts and feelings don’t have to persist. I can shake this deep down feeling that I’m not good enough, now I just need to know how. I hope to find the answer here.
