I wonder if there is anything you are telling yourself that just isn’t true anymore?
For almost 20 years I got acrylic nails, because “I’m a nail biter”. When I was a teenager I bit my nails down to nothing. It was painful and hard to look at.
I got fake tips and realized I couldn’t do much damage to those! I kept getting them done.
I spent upwards of $100 a month, every month, for over 18 years, getting my nails done.
I HAD to. I’m a nail biter. It was the only way.
I was SO afraid to stop getting my nails done. This time last year I went for switching to gel. I was sure I’d destroy them.
A few months ago, I gave up the whole nail salon thing all together.
Turns out I’m not a nail biter.
I know this may seem like a silly example, but I believed something about myself, that was true when I was 15 years old, without ever questioning if it was true NOW.
We do this all the time.
We say I’m this or that, or I’m not something. All based on something our parents or a teacher said, or even worse, something we assumed!
Half of my life spent worried over something that wasn’t even relevant. What a waste of time.
I wonder what story YOU need to let go of?
