Ask Yourself...

#66

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 think I assume that if I’m triggered in some way, whatever I feel in the moment about what’s happening present time is invalid. 

i think sometimes I scapegoat my trauma and blame my emotions on “triggers” so that I can get away with feeling angry at someone. (Because I still have it ingrained in me that anger is bad, that anger will get me isolated.) 

So instead of owning up to my anger to a present day situation, I explain it away by saying it’s “just a trigger” and that I need to be healed then I wouldn’t feel that way about someone again. 
 

I feel this way about my roommate and one of my ex-friends. It’s a way to make my anger out to be something wrong with me, instead of actually looking at what’s angering me in the situation. 
 

oof… this one is hard.

Oh so many. 

Assumption I make very often is that I don't deserve good things. But its so deep in me that sometimes when someone is actually really nice to me I start to see ugliness in them. Probably a defense mechanism protecting me from receiving that I still percieve as a dangerous bond. 

Other assumption I make very often is that I put people above me. Deliberately making my value smaller then theirs. Assuming they know more than I do, have more skills and abilities than I do. So I abandon my own self, my own wisdom and intuition.

Always always always the worst case scenario even though I know how self-defeating it is. I used to be so optimistic and things came to me so easily. Everything worked out in my favor with minimal effort on my part. But after 6 years of one horrible thing after the other, I can't seem to get back to that. I'm so freaking frustrated! I feel hopelessly stuck. It's a terrible place to be

I cant heal. I can't be the person I want to be. I'm cursed. I can't go back to who I used to be. My soul is lost for good. I will never experience true happiness or joy again or find myself again or find a place I can consider a home. LOST.

I have another one, wich is kind of the same: I'm evil, I'm the worst person ever.

What if I am the worst person ever?

You are to defective.

It's a waste working on you, or your life. You have failed all ready many times, you gonna fail, there's enough proof by now. You are the failure. And you're not worth it. 

Don't try so hard, save your energy.

And don't believe in yourself. You'll be disappointed. 

Just give up,

just do what others want you to do. You are not important.

That others are out to get me. Cause there's something wrong with me. 

I've got bullied in every school by teachers and students, in church also.

I used to hide in carbage containers, so others wouldn't forcefully put me there. And I also stopped going to school as a teen, sat by pond, and wrote imaginary storys how I have friends, I also started talking to myself. (but I stopped cause I felt, I was loosing touch with reality.)

My first bully was my mom. She was worse than any bully.

That if I try something that is not determined safe by others and want to follow my gut and go for my self-trust, I will only face failures to prove that I’m wrong.
