Beliefs - How Do They Cause Us Pain?
Show Notes

Someone reached out to me and asked me what I mean when I say that we can use our emotions and thoughts (beliefs) as information to learn more about our selves.

Life is unfair is one of the most used beliefs among people going through cancer treatments. I choose to think that life is neutral, it follows no one's schedule etc..  But as human beings, we have expectations, plans etc.. When life happens - as it has always done, and our expectations aren't fulfilled, then we get annoyed about life being unfair. But it is our beliefs about the beautiful thing called life that cause us pain.

In this week's episode, I explore a few beliefs that cause us pain. Beliefs are thoughts that we have been thinking over and over, they become automatic for us.
