PERSON 1: This is something I deal with every single day. My thoughts constantly barking at me. But what creates a negative thought pattern? how does it begin? ————————————————
PERSON 2: Negative thought patterns about ones self can start from anywhere. Something as innocuous as a sarcastic comment from a friend regarding ones choice of career path. judgements about a persons career, beliefs, values, sexuality, fashion sense, their physical form and so on. the list is endless. These all represent an opportunity for the mind to use fear and approval as a means to quell ones spirit. As I previously stated, we are an expression but we live our lives as if we are programmed robots. Cramming one another into the tiniest boxes.
