Limiting Beliefs and the link to Mental Health
As this is Mental Health Awareness week in the UK I have written this article about the relationship between our limiting beliefs and how we think, feel and behave. Consequently, this affects how we perceive ourselves and interact with the world and others, Limiting beliefs are described as negative thoughts we have about ourselves. Holding onto them will affect our mental and physical well-being.
Behind the Mask
I have spent the last 18 months writing my book called ‘Behind the Mask’ which will be published in July 2019. The subject of the book is about living life authentically and not behind a facade or mask. One of the chapters looks at Limiting Beliefs and another about Core Values. Most noteworthy we delve into the subject of limiting beliefs and what purpose they are serving you.
By living in-authentically it is likely that you are living your life through someone else’s standards or rules. Eventually this bravado will catch up with you affect your mental and physical health. One specific category of mental health is ‘Personality Disorders’.
A personality disorder is a type of mental health problem where your attitudes, beliefs and behaviours cause you longstanding problems in your life. If you find yourself thinking negatively about yourself, it is likely that you have low self-esteem and lack confidence in whatever you undertake.
The term ‘personality disorder’ can sound very judgemental. However there are a number of different categories and types of personality disorder. Furthermore, it is a label that most of us would shy away from and would opt to describe our behaviour as an in-congruence between how we think (beliefs and values) and how we act.
