Are your perceptions of yourself holding you back?
I’m realizing more and more lately how negative perceptions of myself that I have carried my whole life hold me back. This is particularly troublesome in recovery from mental health issues and addiction. When I get caught up in a fixed idea of myself it impacts my all or nothing thinking and causes me to feel discouraged. Now that I am becoming more aware of these old perceptions I can start letting them go and feel free.
Are you holing onto old negative perceptions of yourself? Do they hold you back and keep you from making changes? Do they keep you from appreciating who you are today?
