Our identity is created through several different things but most often it all starts with our first experiences, and the environment we grow up in. Who we believe we are or the concept of ourselves, our ego; gets shaped between the ages of zero and eight.
In our early years before the world gets its hands on us, we start out naturally knowing our full true Self; as children of God and extensions of Love. We are born pure, innocent, happy and peaceful beings; we enter the world in a place of wonder. Aware of our own brilliance and magnificence.
Then slowly, the ego world takes hold and begins to imprint its version of “truth” on us. A mistaken truth which sadly many of us take as gospel.
Today on The Karen Kenney Show, we’re taking a look at the stories we take on, write and tell about ourselves. The kind of stories that have us believing we aren’t good enough, that we’re stupid, or we’re broken or not lovable. When the reality is actually the opposite.
There may have been pockets of time when maybe you were fumbling around trying to figure it all out, but no matter what you do, no one can take away your true identity. The identity where you are worthy, loveable and capable of loving.
While our “ego personalities” could probably use some work (Ha!).... that doesn’t mean we are broken and need to be fixed. Instead, we need to remember who we truly are, our real, capital S - Self, and work from a place of love and acceptance of who we came here to be.
