My beliefs about me in romantic relationships

Today’s group looked at how we saw ourselves in romantic relationships. The way we are in relationships stems from beliefs we hold on our self. The blueprint for how we see ourselves most likely originates from our first relationships, Our parents and family.

We did an exercise to look at this and find out what messages we learned from childhood. Below are a couple of examples of this;

This leads to my beliefs about me in relationships:
1. No one wants to be with me
2. I am unlovable
3. I am a burden to others


This means my pattern in relationship is to:
1. Not make a connection
2. I give too much
3. I don’t say what I need


By changing old unhelpful beliefs into new realistic ones we give ourselves more hope for the future
