MVP: The stories we tell ourselves aren’t always true
Over the last few years I’ve been learning a lot about the stories or beliefs we have about ourselves and how often we actually believe them. Oftentimes, stories are how we think things “should be.”
For example: Because I haven't gone to graduate school yet, I’m lazy. Laziness is wrong, therefore I’m wrong.
The truth is, going to grad school doesn't dictate if I’m wrong, lazy, or ultimately worthy.
But the other truth to this is if I didn’t address these stories or take time to notice they are even there, how will I know they aren’t true?
What are the stories you tell yourself? Do they actually help you? Just because you think or feel something doesn't mean it’s always true.
