Beliefs become problems when they work against you. If you suffer from low self-esteem (a belief you are of little or no value), there is a big impact on your life. The feeling we may have “that’s just how it is for me.” shows acceptance of such a belief.The person with this feeling cannot see beyond it. Even when they know it is not true, they still feel it as if it were true. And their lives show it. They do not get their needs met. No matter how much stuff or money or sex they get, they may still feel down, unsatisfied, frustrated, and even angry about it.
