I feel guilty.
Because I am a bad daughter.
Because I don’t play by my dad’s rules for our relationship.
Is that your belief? That you must play by your dad’s rules to be a good daughter?
It’s what I learned from my dad.
Now that you are an adult woman, do you believe you must play by his rules to be a good daughter?
That’s where most people pause.
How often are you accepting beliefs that aren’t yours? How often are you living your life by someone else’s belief system?
Notice the next time you feel guilty. PAUSE. What is creating the feeling of guilt? (hint: it is a belief). Now check in, is this your belief or someone else’s belief? Is this belief true for you?
If the belief is your belief, you might be out of alignment with your best self. Time to re-align with self-love and self-compassion.
If the belief is not your belief and not true for you, give yourself permission to let it go and free yourself from the feeling of guilt.
The key is to choose what you believe and live in alignment.
P.S. Choosing what you believe sounds like one of those things that’s easier said than done. But, it’s not! I have a four-step process laid out in the Mindset Journal that will teach you how to identify your feelings and beliefs and choose what to believe in a matter of minutes. Get your copy here.
