SELF-LIMITING CORE BELIEFS
SELF-LIMITING CORE BELIEFS
Psychology research has proven, time and again, that our beliefs systems shape the possibilities our lives hold––for better and for worse.
When we’ve experienced hurt, scarcity, and limitations, we begin to internalize beliefs systems that can become self-fulfilling prophecies.
When enough unresolved pain accumulates, we start to see these beliefs as global and they can begin leading to distorted ways of seeing the world that limit what we can accomplish and sabotage our ability to get what we want from our lives: whether individually, relationally, or with our personal goals and achievements.
These are called “self-limiting core beliefs,” and they can lead to feelings of shame, anxiety, and low-self esteem.
To make matters worse, when we show up in the world in that way, we tend to find ourselves in situations that reinforce our deepest fears, about ourselves, others, and our future, creating a vicious cycle that can be difficult to see past.
We tend to unquestioningly accept these self-limiting beliefs as true as true when we leave them unchecked and do not examine them more deeply. But don’t despair!
The good news is that with a deeper investigation of our core beliefs, we may discover important truths about ourselves and how these internalized beliefs contribute to our distorted thinking. (See our Mastering Thought Distortions Guide to learn how to overcome irrational thoughts and triggers, which can help shift core beliefs as well.)
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) is a research-proven technique that can help transform self-limiting core beliefs and help us see ourselves and the world in more empowering ways.
So many of the forms of therapy we offer are devoted to changing our relationship to our past and stepping into a new present and future. We use mindfulness, experiential, and trauma-focused interventions to help you break free of your limitations and discover what is possible for you.
