Having this thought means I am a bad human, I deserve(d) the bad things happening to me, that I am a worse person than…. (who the thought is about), I don’t deserve to live, and don’t deserve to be loved, I have an inability to love/care, that I will never have a functioning relationship/family
I can relate to that list. How does it feel to have all these judgements in the open and to question them?
Writing it down and seeing it written down – it kind of disempowers the thoughts, because seeing it written down makes it look like such a silly thought
“Having this thought means that…”:
– Something’s wrong with me
– If people find out, they’ll lock me up
– I’m a bad mom
– I’m damaged
– I should be careful
Having the thought means I’m nasty, spiteful, unlovable, bad, bad daughter, unforgivable, faulty, childish ,despicable ,. Im a fake.I feel lighter to write my shameful thoughts down and have them seen. My body feels softer and i don’t feel so alone in the thought, others have these thoughts too.
…”other have these thoughts too”, exactly so! Did you do inquiry on one of these statements? If so, how was your experience with that?
