Having taken time to reflect on what I see as my failings, I have come to realise that those failings aren’t mine, but they’re parental issues of me. I also know I need to take control back now and own those failings since sadly they’re still mine.
Below are some questions that have helped me assess myself:
- Do you continually blame your parents for your life?
- Are you happy to take control or do your parents control you?
- Do you find yourself doing as your parents have done without question?
- Are you continuing to repeat the same mistakes as your parents?
- Are you continually living with the same bad habits or patterns?
- Are you in a rut and don’t know how to change things?
As children, we tend to repeat the patterns and habits our parents set out for us, until we learn how to change them. Recognition is the key to change, but we must be prepared to change the way we think and the way we react to things.
Positive affirmations that work on the subconscious brain, helped change some of my own thinking, my beliefs helped me change the rest. Through confidence also, I came to believe I could contribute to my life positively, through new eyes.
