Byron Katie guides Tina from Italy as she does The Work on one complete Worksheet. Tina is struggling with the belief that her boyfriend destroys her self-esteem when it comes to money.
Tina questions beliefs such as:
I want Reto to work on himself.
He should look inside himself to see why he needs to underestimate me in order to feel stronger and better.
He needs to be happy about my idea.
I want him to support me and be more enthusiastic about my projects.
I need him to be happy about my ideas.
I need him to think that I can produce money.
After questioning all the concepts on the Worksheet, Tina comes to realize the many ways that she was undermining her own self-esteem and her relationship with Reto by believing her thoughts.
“The Work is a practice,” Katie says. “You identify what you were believing in a situation that caused you stress, then you question those thoughts, using the four questions and the turnarounds. This is how you can set yourself free.”
