Things have always gone relatively well for me, so I had this belief that I deserved all these good things: successful career, great family of origin, amazing partner, close friends. Then, when things stopped going perfectly, I took it so personally. The thoughts (and feelings) that I was to blame when everything was not going well made it so much harder.
When I hit the bottom of my blame/shame spiral, I finally started seeking anything that pointed to something different. When I discovered Dr. AmyJohnson I started questioning if my thoughts and beliefs were completely true. So much has changed for me just by pausing in between a thought and believing it - that I want to help other people make pause-itive changes too.
