Handout on what you do to feed manipulation; Beliefs that interrupt your self worth

HOW TO USE THIS WORKSHEET ON BELIEFS:

Here is one example: I AM UNWORTHY if you subscribe to that belief way down deep inside of you are you honestly able to shift it to I’m Good Enough ?
If you can’t make the shift ask yourself is there a weird comfort you get that you don’t want to give up? Do you believe if you stay stuck in feeling worthless then you are safer & less likely to be hurt.
(You can also try wearing a rubber band on your wrist & snap it lightly to interrupt your self defeating feelings & see if you can switch to a possible future belief.)
The Present Focus Egg are beliefs in the present that mess up your progress i.e I’m too busy with my career right now, I’m too wrapped up in my kids, Buying things to make me feel better temporarily is the only thing I can do etc….Beliefs that shape your priorities making it harder to go forward.
