Ask Yourself...


What assumption do I make chronically that is getting in my way?

(Answer In The Comments Below )
From "100 Of The Most Powerful Questions You Can Ask Yourself"

Nothing has the power to completely alter perspective and therefore your thoughts and actions and life quite like a question. Inquiry leads to understanding. The quality of the answers we arrive at, correspond directly to the quality of question we ask. The better the question, the better the answer. One of the most important things to realize about a question is that a person learns far, far more from the process and work involved in answering a question than from the answer itself. This is why spiritual teachers throughout history (including myself) have tended to pose so many questions to their students rather than to simply offer a direct answer. For this reason, I have selected a collection of 100 of the most powerful questions that you can ask yourself.

Make sure to take time to carefully consider each question that is posed in order to meaningfully answer them. And don’t forget to come back to these questions again and again throughout your life, especially whenever you are feeling stuck, because the answers will most likely change over the course of your life and also cause you to change your course in life.

I often assume that I'm going to fail, and therefore disappoint, and therefore have to hear someone else say the demeaning things I say to myself far too often. I'm working through this pattern more and more though. Its rough, but I am indeed improving.

I assume that I'm not capable to do (and do well) things that I've never done, even something simple like driving. That stems from the fear of making mistakes and being singled out for my mistakes. I was a high achiever in school, effortlessly. So whenever I made a mistake in class, it was made to be a bigger deal because I'm "smart" and "smart" people aren't allowed to fuck up because you should know "better." I was told this in front of my entire class by the Dean of Students.

School ain't shit.

I chronically assume I will be disappointed, that I will not get what I deeply desire, or if I do it will be ripped away or lost to me some how. I gave up even knowing what I wanted for a long time because of this, then I realized I don't know what I want or where my boundaries are due to this. Then I went on a mission to figure this out and now have found the reason I gave up on these ideas a long time ago. Fuck I need help with this one.

I automatically assume that everyone is out to get me.

My mother tried to kill me several times before a near-death event at 2 years old where I ended up in the hospital where I was turning blue with hair gel in my nose and suffocating to death. There is currently a court case with court-ordered monitoring which will persist until her death due to this.

God, Abrahm (The name Abraham told me), and Spirituality are the only things providing me perspective on Life.

You know what happens when you assume? You make an ass out of u and me. Because of expectation. expectations are just front loaded resentments. A anxious man lives in the future, a depressed man lives in the past and a man content in his existence lives in the current moment which is the only moment that ever exists. Everything else either has happened or could happen. But it is all decided by the here and now.
