Faulty Core Beliefs & Denial Classroom
Faulty Core Beliefs
When we have an experience which we perceive in shame, if we are unable to recognize the Truth about the experience, then we will develop Faulty Core Beliefs (FCB’s). FCB’s are the outcome of shame; they are the language, messages and beliefs about my core identity, which I develop over time and with repeated shame-based perceptions. Once I am aware of my Faulty Core Beliefs, I have power to change them.
If Faulty Core Beliefs are one side of a coin, denial is the other. While we skew our self-perception by believing FCB’s, denial deflects all other perceptions, opinions and points of view away from us, so that we never “hear” the Truth. Denial locks shame and Faulty Core Beliefs in place.
There are many denial strategies which “allow” us to use denial without recognizing or being responsible for using it. Popular denial strategies include:
- Creating Distractions
- Uniqueness / Different
