Insecurities and Reinforcements

Anything negative I deal with sometimes reinforces my insecurities about my disability. It’s not that I’m looking for those insecurities, but negativity energy can trigger some of the old thoughts.

It’s all too common for us to subconsciously hold on to insecurities from childhood. Although we may see some of the issues we deal with positively, it is hard to fully let go. Although our childhood issues may not impact our ability to make positive choices in our every day lives, every now and again they can compound some of the negative issues we may have.

What’s clear is we need to create and be responsible for our own happiness, but where our experiences may counter that, we must accept we are no longer that child and find a way through so that we are able to see our issues in a positive light.

  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.
