Week 2: Internalized Beliefs

What is the Either/Or narrative you’ve been telling yourself?

Ex. “Either I’ll be a world famous artist or get a regular job.”

“Either I’ll be wildly successful in my career or pursue family life.”

“I can only serve God by becoming a missionary or pastor”

This kind of thinking keeps us limited in our choices and makes us afraid to make decisions. If we do decide, we feel inadequate in our chosen path. Either/or thinking usually stems from familial, cultural, or religious influences that we’ve subconsciously adopted as our own beliefs. Let’s remove what doesn’t belong to us.
