What are every single SA core beliefs you have? throw them all! you might even find a core belief you didn't know know you have. If you don't know how to find your core beliefs look up "cbt laddering technique" excersise to find your core beliefs.

Mine are
- people get socially uncomfortable from me when i'm anxious
- people don't like me
- i make people socially uncomfortable
- i make people get into awkward situations with me

- People think I'm just a kid and will treat me like such if I talk to them (I look young and definitely don't look 27; give my height and size I can still pass as a middle school girl)
- I won't be taken seriously because of my looks
- People wouldn't want to talk to me, I'm too awkward and quiet
- I don't always know what to say so more often than not I'm just going to sound stupid, thus I shouldn't bother talking to anyone and just keep to myself

-People dont actually like me or want me around/everyone actually hates me
-Everyone is laughing at me/talking about me behind my back
-I am not enough -be it smart enough/funny enough/attractive enough/etc
-People cant be trusted
-Everyone I love will either hurt/betray/leave me or die
-The world, or more specifically society and the people within it are dangerous/not safe.

Probably have a bunch more but when I googled examples these ones felt most accurate

After working on laddering to identify my core beliefs. I learned my SA all boils down to i think i'm low (not good enough) or unworthy basically me not liking myself. This made me realize this isn't true because we are metaphysical and abstract. I wrote down things i like about myself and realize i'm actually a likeable person after.

What i do now is keep on paying attention to my likeable traits and grow my affinity towards them by seeing proof constantly like if people laugh at my joke or mild progress i make with my intellectual traits.

WHAT I LIKE ABOUT MYSELF
- smart and highly creative
- extroverted eventhough my SA made it seem like i'm introverted. I tought i was an introvert for the longest time.
- naturally great in business
- funny
- very approachable eventhough i'm tall. I have a nice energy

The reason you don't like yourself is becuase you're paying attention too much the negative traits and identified yourself with them. What makes you "you" is what you want to be

This women really helped me out. Her is a 1hour long video of her explain core beliefs and how to identify them and resolve them.

Hie yer hence from me heath!
  • People don't like me
  • I'm ugly
  • I make people uncomfortable and awkward
  • I'm boring
  • People can't be trusted
  • I'll only get hurt and betrayed in the end
  • I'm useless
  • I'm not good enough. Smart enough, funny enough, talkative enough...
That's pretty much the lot.

For me, a big one is that I'm inferior to others.
I can't depend on others
People are always judging me harshly
Other people are dangerous

Omg you just gave me another core belief i have which is i think people are better than me!
From writting all the great qualities i have it's not true.
 
I believe that people not knowing me would think the following of me:

  • That I am an unintelligent person and naive;
  • that I look suspicious and weird.
I also get the twisted impression that my every move is being studied by people (especially in closed spaces like the metro or stores).

Throughout the years I've been more or less able to not care anymore.

Have people said you look suspicious before?
