negative thoughts

Three Questions

3-art.jpg

1 . Could you stand discovering a hidden part of you?

2 . When it showed itself, would you have the courage to embrace it?

3 . And, if you couldn't, would that make you weak?

The answer is absolutely, positively not. Weakness has nothing to do with not wanting to see that part of you that is referred to as your shadow. Think about it. It sits in a hidden place. Unseen. Disassociated from anything viewable in your life.

But, like a stone in your shoe, it's there. It hurts. Negatively affecting every relationship you have. Including the most important relationship. The one you have with yourself. For it is your sense of self that directs what you do, how you do it, and how much joy you gain from it.

So. Know this. You’re healthy, true self get expressed — only to the degree — that it is visible. And. What about the invisible? Unfortunately, what you can't see about yourself has the power to have a negative affect on just about everything you can see.

But, of course, you don't know it, cause you can't see it.

Stop You in Your Tracks

Giving yourself permission to go for what you really want isn't always easy. Feeling undeserving, unworthy, or selfish can get in the way. Remember, though, you're not really those things, but rather, those things are nothing more than negative self beliefs.

Unfortunately, negative self beliefs can stop you in your tracks, and keep you from moving forward. So, think about this: Do you fully give yourself permission to live the life you really want?

Starbucks and a Movie

You stop at Starbucks, but you just swig down your drink. You watch a movie, but in a week you forgot you even watched it.

Guess what might be happening? You might have unpleasant thoughts or feelings you are trying to avoid. You figure if you hold off thinking about them, they might shrink and fade away.

Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way. The only way to get them to go away is to become aware of them (as bad as that sounds). Then comes the really hard part. Accept what you're trying to not accept, and move on. 

If you can train yourself to raise your awareness of what you're thinking and feeling, you're more likely to get over the one you're trying to forget.
