Your beliefs, thoughts and fears are powerful
Your beliefs, thoughts and fears are powerful, often damaging and you know that we all see things differently – which explains lots of disagreements of course. So how true are they? How did you develop your beliefs, thoughts and fears and more importantly are they helping you?

Many of the habits they want to change are also the result of habits copied from others, even imposed on them by others and the initial beliefs that this activity is going to be helpful, fun or even asserting independence (in the case of some habits started as teenagers).
You can choose to stop, look at some of your beliefs, thoughts and fears and why and how you developed them. Then decide whether some of these are helpful or unhelpful to you right now and how you can go about changing - if you wish.
You may find that simply reframing or choosing to change the way the way you think, believe or behave can do some of this… however
