We all have a belief system that affects how we live day to day. Over time that belief system will begin to affect how we perceive and interpret what we see, feel and hear.
If we continually live with negativity, our belief system will see all our present and future situations in negative ways. It takes a lot of effort for us to identify the beliefs that begin to affect our lives negatively. Through our beliefs, we must learn to identify and release ourselves from any negative thoughts.
The more we work on our feelings and beliefs, the more peace we will have in the longer term. Feelings remain inside of us until we learn how to challenge and change them. As a general rule, we think that if our circumstances change, we will be happier, but we must work on change.
We have a tendency to replicate the same feelings and emotions we have in childhood, in our adult life. We take our feelings with us. For example, if we relocate, our feelings and problems will also go with us.
That said, we can change how we perceive our beliefs and behaviour so that we see the positive and act on that.
