If you in need of some hope-🧠 consider this…
Our 🧠brain maintains a level of plasticity. What that means is, we have the ability to reorganize and form new neural connections. So yes, you can retrain your🧠 brain with sensations that are positive and nourishing.
Habits are formed by repetition, whether that is physically, physiologically or mentally. It creates what is called, a neural pathway in your 🧠brain. By practicing and reinforcing new skills over time, they will literally stick in your 🧠brain’s new neural pathways.
So give yourself some time to help your 🧠brain create those neural connections for self compassion, vulnerability, trust, openness, boundaries, standards, assertiveness and any other qualities you desire to embody.
