At the end of last year, we did a survey asking you what you’d like to stop doing the most in 2020. We learned that self-doubt and self-criticism is something a lot of you would like to minimize. This brings back to the questions:
"How and when did this thought pattern get developed?"
"How did thisideaplant the seed in our head?’
Nobody is perfect. Our upbringing shaped who we are a lot more than we think. Now that we are adults and are aware of our thought patterns, we can learn to unlock and remove what no longer positively serves us.
The beginning of a transformation starts with recognizing that we need to change. Now let’s dive deep into this. Get your pen and paper ready!
Do you experience imposter syndrome? Do you find yourself comparing to others and feel that you're not good enough?
Do you sometimes find that you have relationship anxieties? Do you find it hard to open up and let someone in?
All of these come down to your ability to accept yourself. And you can never fully accept yourself until you heal that wound with your parents around acceptance.
When you can make peace with self-acceptance issues with your parents (whether to heal OR to forgive & move on), that’s when you can feel truly secure within yourself; that's when you will stop experiencing imposter syndrome; that’s when you can find true love - the kind of love that truly accepts you for who you are.
