Life experiences can sow seeds of doubt into our minds. Many people grew up in families where self-worth and value is associated with achievement.
There is often confusion between praise and criticism, thus criticism sets the standard of which imposters measure themselves by.
Imposters then enter society and more pressures and negative comments, seemingly failures, external events or relationships become internalized.
These internalized negative experiences replay in our minds and become a part of our subconscious thoughts and beliefs. As the events, experiences and emotions are charged with energy, the replaying of such experiences gives self-doubt power and life.
We struggle to break the cycle of self-doubt and continue to feed our negative thoughts and become a servant to our unruly mind.
Honouring and Serving,
