When can conditioning become problematic?

You will without realising it lean on this conditioning, it will be your filter. For example; If you grew up in a household where your parents tended to only give you attention and show you love when you achieved something, you would have learned that attention and love is conditional and has to be earned. As an adult this could drive you to continually push yourself to achieve in order to gain external validation and feel “good enough”.

Where do I start?

Unlearning learnt behaviours and or thinking patterns can be a tricky process and one that can take a degree of determination and patience.
