These Limiting Beliefs begin to form in our early childhood experiences (especially within those Non-Nurturing Elements discussed during our last Shift 101 segment) and we hold these beliefs such as “I’m not good enough” or “I’m not in control” or “I’m going to be abandoned.”, etc. In addition to a few more terms we are going to discuss in our upcoming posts, these Limiting Beliefs become very strong and hard to change and end up shaping a lot of our behaviours, thoughts and feelings.

The reason why our Limiting Beliefs are so hard to change is because of a term called Cognitive Dissonance. What this essentially means is that we feel a massive amount of discomfort when our beliefs, ideas and values are challenged. Therefore, we will change how we interpret situations so that our beliefs stay intact.

This common phenomenon is caused by Limiting Beliefs and their Dysfunctional Needs, because when they combine we get caught up in a vicious circle of thought, emotion and action.

Whether it's coming from seeing social media where we are looking at others "highlight reels" and feeling like we need to live as great and perfect life as they seem to be living. Or it's feeling pressure to be the Pinterest Mom, so that your 1 year old's Birthday Party can have snacks and decorations that are all in theme. Although they are never going to remember it. It could involve thumbing through Men's Fitness magazines and feeling like you must have a 6-pack in order to measure up. Whatever it is we are surrounded by pressure to be constantly be perfect. The way that it can play out in our lives we may not always consider.

So we all have our own types of opt-out behaviours. Sometimes we use some more than others. Some examples are, having great plans to go home and have a healthy meal and play a game of cards. When you get home you end up ordering pizza and watching The Real Housewives.. of whatever city they are in now. We can punish that whole bottle of wine even though we promised ourselves only one glass because it's a Wednesday and I don't want to wake up hungover again. Once I have that first glass I say, "Well... what's the harm of having one more.. and one more.. and there's only a little left in the bottle so I might as well finish it."
