I am in the process of really identifying my core beliefs. Not just thinking about it but identifying them, writing them down, and trying to actively change them with the help of my therapist. She has instructed me to go through the last three months of thought records and pull out recurring hot thoughts and use them to identify my core beliefs. I have had a fairly easy time identifying core beliefs about myself, but am having a hard time identifying them as they relate to others and to the world in general. Does anyone have a good startgey for identifying core beliefs in general (I'm sure I'm just skimming the surface with ones about me too). These thoughts are so deeply ingrained that it's hard to pull them to the concious mind. Any suggestions would be helpful.
