The beliefs we create as children (or in other traumatic circumstances throughout teen and adulthood) are designed to preserve our mental, emotional and physical wellbeing. Those beliefs, which served as coping mechanisms at the time, very often become outdated as we grow and/or our circumstances change.
As children we don’t have the independence or ability to avoid or leave traumatic situations, so we escape mentally and emotionally. This is necessary to preserve our developing psyche's and, in some cases, to survive physically. As adults, the tools we use to ‘escape’, survive and thrive, including the ability to physically leave a situation, are very different than those available to us as children.
That’s why the beliefs we establish as children, to preserve or enhance our wellbeing are very different from the beliefs needed to support us as adults. Success and power as a child is achieved very differently from that of an adult. That’s why your core beliefs must transition as you grow and enter/exit the various circumstances in your life.
