Have you noticed my recent blog posts have been building on a certain theme? Each one is written to take you deeper and deeper into your healing. My intent is to help you tackle your core issues and accelerate your healing. Sounds good, doesn’t it? I think so!
Today, let’s talk about what we believe. It’s more important than you might think.
Unfortunately, abused children are told many lies. Children are sponges, and they’re born into this world, trusting their parents and caretakers. It’s only natural for them to absorb and believe everything they’re taught. Even if what they’re taught isn’t true.
Every single thing we do is a direct response to what we believe. Everything we say and think is also based on these core beliefs. So my question to you is what do you believe?
Unless you’re consciously choosing healthy beliefs, creating new habits based on those beliefs, and changing your behavior to match those beliefs, you’re living your life on “autopilot.” Autopilot for a survivor of child abuse means you’ll continue to live according to the toxic lies and beliefs you were taught by your abuser. Ouch!
To change this toxic lifestyle pattern, I encourage you to question all your beliefs. Ask yourself: where did this belief come from? Is it authentic to who I am? Does it serve me? Does it serve others?
If you’re not sure what you believe, start here. I’ve taken six toxic core beliefs, and I’ve changed them into healthy core beliefs. You can do the same.
- Change I am unworthy (the lie) into I am worthy (the truth).
- Change I have no value (the lie) into I am valuable (the truth).
- Change I’m not enough (the lie) into I am enough (the truth).
- Change I am a burden (the lie) into I am a gift (the truth).
- Change I am weak (the lie) into I am strong (the truth).
- Change I am not lovable (the lie) into I am loved by God (the truth).
Cultivate the habit of questioning every old and new belief you hold. If a belief doesn’t serve your authentic self, it’s toxic. Dump it or change it into a healthy belief.
That’s how you live day by day as your authentic self!
