How self judgements are stories

Self judgements are stories we make up and how they hold us back.

”A story is the relationship that you develop between who you are, or who you potentially are, and the infinite world,” -Shekhar Kapur-

In essence, everything you think about yourself is true, until it’s not.

Our lives are made up of stories, and the most compelling stories are the ones we tell ourselves, about ourselves. If you tell yourself you’ll never succeed; You’re not good at anything; You’re always late; You’re can’t lose weight. Etc, then that becomes true based on the sheer fact that everything you do, say and think affirms it. The stories we tell about our lives generate experiences: how we feel, what we think, and the possibilities and obstacles we see for ourselves.

Our self-judging stories keep us from living up to our true potential. They limit us and shape our fears and dreams. The more you repeat your negative story, the more powerful its impact on your emotions and behavior.

Most of us are not even aware of the stories we’ve created for ourselves subconsciously. This is even more detrimental because we get caught up in a web of our own spinning.

The good news is that you can always rewrite your story. We are not just products of circumstances or passive receptors of forces, we can also make decisions and act intentionally to our benefit.

The first step in rewriting your life story is to become aware of the story you’re telling yourself now.

Once you’ve become conscious of the story, you can begin to rewrite it.  In your new story, showcase your strengths, and the things that make you feel good about yourself. Write about how you’re now overcoming obstacles, and actively shaping the life of your dreams. Fill it with joy, triumphs, and a happy ending.

We become the stories that we tell ourselves. Transform your life by rewriting your story today. As this may sound hard to do, there are tools and support that would assist you in transforming your thoughts to be the thoughts that you want to have.
