You may know yourself, but that doesn’t mean that’s how you have to be. Identity, like memory (or because of it), is malleable, so you can change your identity. Watch this TED video because it explains how memory works, and, from direct experience, challenges common misunderstandings about how our past must indelibly watermark our future.

Judith Claybourne explains.

 

One Response to “It’s Never Too Late to Have a Happy Childhood”

  1. Feelings and situations
    How often do you let your feelings dictate how you react to a situation.
    Something in the past, in the moment or in the future.
    Feelings are natural, but believe it or not, we do have control over them.
    The next time someone says something that you see as an attack on you personally and it makes you feel bad, remember you are the only one suffering by holding that thought, as they are oblivious. 9 times out of 10 we have misread the meaning especially by text or email. The intention to upset or hurt was not there, and even if it was, try just observing it and letting it go. The feeling will only pull you down and the mind escalate the story until you have created a whole novel in your head.
    I’m not saying it’s easy, but I have tried it and can feel the relief when you let it go.
    Feelings have their purpose but negative ones can only bring us down.
    Angela.

Nothing wrong with that, but it is best to recognise it, and to keep an open mind about what will happen next. The greater our need to keep things the way they are, the greater the risk of disappointment and even neurosis.

Trying to control the uncontrollable is unpleasant for us, and those around us.

Selective Optimism for Pessimists

There are advantages to optimism that are worth considering, but some people are put off because they don’t want to be disloyal to negativity.

Optimism and pessimism are generally seen as opposites, but that doesn’t mean they are mutually exclusive; learning optimism does not mean abandoning negativity. If that is what turns you on, stick with it.

If you tend towards a pessimistic outlook, how about learning selective optimism? That way you can get the benefits and still be true to your negativity.
