Reply To: Always and Never in belief statements
Thanks all, these are some great starting points for me. After reading the replies and digging down further in my feelings I agree that other beliefs are at play causing these global “always” and “never” statements. Beliefs such as “I'm unlucky” or “I'm cursed” have come to the surface throughout my life.
I remember several years ago while I was in traditional talk therapy my therapist and I would uncover a pattern of negative thinking on my part and he would lament “it's your limiting beliefs that are causing all of this”. Of course he wasn't much help when I would press him on how to eliminate these beliefs but that's a different story.
I'm really grateful to Tim for developing such an easy to use, simple tool for attacking these beliefs head on. I know there's a lot of work ahead now but the happiness is in the journey. Thanks again!
