Why do we torture ourselves? Where do these deep seeded beliefs come from? and how deeply rooted are they?

In fact, most of our programming relating to belonging, self-worth, and self-esteem ALL stem from our pre-verbal years; what we witnessed, heard, saw, felt, tasted, smelled, experienced, but didn’t yet have words or meaning to comprehend or make sense of any of it.
During our adult years, we are often unconsciously creating experiences that are confirming these early programming years, to fulfill our self-proclaimed (even if they are unconscious thoughts) ideas about ourselves, our lives, our worth, our future, our past, our body, our health, our capacity, our fill in the blank with your personal story here…
Self-animosity stems from deep-seeded abuses that we have personalized and made our own.
