Everyone is the sum total of their experiences, be they positive, negative, or even neutral.
They not only have the power to alter us at the moment, but also have the potential to shape everything that comes after them whether we realize it or not. Regardless of what it seems like at the moment, your story is both traumatic and sad as much as it is positive and transformational. Your story makes up the core of who you are and determines how you present yourself to the world at large.
Whether you realize it or not, you are also telling your story each and every day, both to yourself and those you meet. Each conversation that you have, in some way, reflects some aspect of your story, of your experiences. Likewise, your internal dialog is suffused with memories of days gone by and you are likely always moving towards or away from some version of your past with every thought.
The various meanings that you find in your personal experience are then the threads that come together to create the tapestry of your story as a whole. Thus, when you interpret your story through a negative filter you end up creating new limiting beliefs about yourself that will ultimately hold you back in the future.
These limiting beliefs could manifest themselves in a wide variety of ways including thoughts such as:
I am not special enough to deserve to be happy
No matter what I do it is never enough
I'm so stupid
I'm not capable of doing that
I'll never be good enough
As a result of limiting beliefs like these, suffering, pain, and fear are much more likely to move to the forefront of your awareness, making it much more difficult for positive emotions to breakthrough.
