conditioned to have them We often end up feeling that they are
who we are. They are not.
Like many of the other essential skills we learn as we grow such
as talking, eating and walking, habits are behaviours learned by
watching others and copying them because these habits appear to
make others look good and/or feel good The motivation to learn is
no different we believe we are smoking/eating more/compulsively
cleaning/procrastinating in our own best interests ‐ to make
ourselves happy. So we practise these behaviours, believing that
they will not only make us feel better about, but also think better
of ourselves and help to make a reality of the person we think we
would like to be...
