All of us see the world through our own glasses, and because of our individual issues, the writing on those lenses may differ, and that writing may change from time to time. Usually the lenses through which we see our world, include negative or limiting beliefs about who we are and about our lack of individual worth. Many times those negative beliefs were placed on our glasses as a result of unkind words or behaviors from another person, and we believed what was said—whether it was true or not.
How can we change these false ideas about ourselves? First, it is helpful picture these glasses in your mind and consciously change the writing to something positive. Then, try to see the world through those new lenses.
As friends and neighbors, we also have the ability to influence others’ beliefs about themselves by the way we treat them. I am so thankful to all who have shown unconditional love to me over the years and helped me to change the writing on my glasses and who taught me that I am indeed lovable.
