Insecurities & reinforcements

I know that any negative issues I deal with reinforce my own insecurities and those are centred around certain aspects of my past. The energy around me presents more negativity that has a spiral effect, reinforcing my issues even more.

Subconsciously I am holding on to thoughts from as far back as a child that reinforce my beliefs. I see the issues clearly. Perhaps because I can see them I can separate myself from them so that they don’t interfere with my daily life, but they do reinforce negativity on some of the things I’ve had to deal with over the years, particularly if I’m struggling to deal with something that isn’t going right.

I know that I need to create and be responsible for my own happiness, instead of subconsciously living certain aspects of my past all over again. I know the negativity surrounding my disability and lack of emotional support in childhood is the reason why I still have those negative thoughts.

I need to work on myself a little more so that I can resolve those issues, so they’re not reinforced every time I get to deal with or think about something.

  1. It does seem that we tend to go back to the past, when things come up that we have to deal with. I do it a lot myself.

    I had the support as a child and wish that you had. Sorry! People deal with things differently. Some get it and deal with it and some don’t, especially parents. Also if your not trained in a medical profession of some kind it is harder to grasp things I’ve discovered from working with parents of medically fragile parents and my own family. Something I think should be easy that’s second nature to me, isn’t to others. I have to learn to deal with these parents that don’t know anything and it brings me back down to earth.

    Keep doing what you’re doing. You handle things so well.

    1. It’s enough Lisa that you wish I had support as a child. I am definitely going to continue doing what I’m doing.

      Thank you for the compliment. That helps.

  2. I can definitely understand what it’s like to have to live with those old tapes constantly repeating themselves in your head. It has taken me a long time to realize when they’re playing and what I can do to change those thought patterns.

    You have helped me to be able to deal so much better with them which I greatly appreciate. I can only hope that I can do the same for you so you won’t have to deal with them when they repeat for you!

    1. Thanks Randy. They’re really just there when I have to deal with anything negative. Most of the time I can forget about them.

      I am pleased I have been a support to you. Being a friend is a support. Thank you.
