💕Calling in the One: Day 18
The human mind operates under something called "negativity bias", meaning the experiences that we perceived as negative stand out in our minds more than the positive ones in order to protect us from being put in the same position. It is in place to help us survive, but can keep us stuck and in a place where we'll never thrive. It may especially be true for our childhoods. That being said, here is my new agreement with my parents:
I, Rachael, release and forgive you for failing to nurture me, give me attention, protect me, cherish me, respect my boundaries, and love me unconditionally. I give up failing to nurture myself, attending to my own needs, protecting and defending myself, cherishing myself, respecting my own boundaries, and loving myself unconditionally. I promise to do my absolute best to begin caring and providing for myself from this day forward and I claim self-care, my pain/struggles, self-soothing, financial provision, healing myself, and fulfilling my dreams and goals as mine fully and completely!

Warmest Wishes, Rachael
