Internal Considering

Internal considering, or identifying with oneself, the opposite of external considering, manifests in myriad ways due to ingrained attitudes, associations, buffers, beliefs and emotional wounding. These include among others:

  • Complaining
  • Comparing oneself to others
  • Judging others and ourselves
  • Making accounts against others and ourselves
  • Self-righteousness
  • Thinking about what others think of us
  • Thinking others should be, look and/or act differently

At the core of all internal considering is the focus on what we want and feeling that we are owed, in other words, self-love. In addition, these forms of interior complaining can activate the negative part of the emotional center, causing various levels of stress on the body through the release of adrenalin and other excitatory chemicals.
