Exercise: Your Disempowering Story

Your Disempowering Story

Look at your answers to Questions 11 and 13 of the Reality Check as a clue.

11. What needs didn’t they meet that you wished they would have?

13. What was challenging about your childhood?

Example: One person shared that she wished her parent’s would have given her as much attention and support as they gave to her little brother.

Her disempowering story: I don’t deserve.

What could you be telling yourself about that? (i.e., I don’t deserve, something is wrong, I’m not worthy)
