Self Worth/Dad

Growing up my dad was verbally abusive, my teen years were the worst and I believed everything he said to me.

He always said very derogatory things to me. Which affected me in many ways in my adult life. I never felt good enough or worthy of success or money. Well because that’s what my dad told me.

My question is now that I know about the model, I know it’s my thoughts about what he said to me that are making me feel this way.

But growing up. I didn’t know better. How was I still able to believe , at that time, what he was telling me was true.

So my worthiness did not come from what my dad said to me growing up? That’s all he told me, it was engrained in my head that I would never be anything.
