Life Patterns are false beliefs we learned about ourselves and the world. They deeply impact how we think and feel, view ourselves, and relate to others. They are an addictive attachment to the image we formed about ourselves and were trained to believe.
Everyone has self-destructive life patterns. They started in childhood with things done to us by our families and other kids – abandoned, criticized, overprotected, abused, excluded, or deprived – we were damaged in some way. And they continue to escort us through life to today. Long after we grow up and leave the home, we continue to reproduce similar situations and repeat the pain of childhood.
Changing our Life Patterns is the key to more fulfilling and successful relationships. By identifying, confronting, and overcoming them, we encounter the deeper, hopeful, positive, happy, and confident part of ourselves that’s ready for loving, respectful, and happy relationships.
