Three Mortal Mistakes that Cutters Make

I have observed that in my work with cutters that there are three mortal mistakes that they make.

By mortal…I am referring to  ways of thinking that keeps them stuck and prevents them from moving forward.

These include: focusing on negative thoughts, thinking of one’s self as a victim and existing in isolation.

They are all related to one another. For example, isolation increases one’s negative thinking and reinforces one’s identity as a victim. Negative thinking increases isolation and one’s identity as a victim.

Thinking of one’s self as a victim is the ultimate of negative thinking and becomes the perfect excuse to isolate one’s self from all the real and imagined ills of the world. Although the latter can appear like a safe harbor on the surface, it prevents one from connecting with those who can help us and further distancing oneself from resources.

It is like three puppies chasing each other’s tail and running round and round. Who knows which one started it and it hardly matters any more.

If I were to pick the original sin it would be negative thinking which will be the topic of my next blog.

To a life worth living,
