Understanding Defensive Behavior
Defensive behavior is a method many of us use to protect our self-esteem. Often, defensiveness is used to hide those parts of our personality or emotions we can’t or don’t want to expose to others. Think of defensiveness as a coping mechanism against emotional harm and pain.
You are probably, to some extent, living out your parents and relatives beliefs and habits about money, abundance and prosperity. Ask yourself this; "Are these beliefs serving me well today?"

Please enjoy this positive thought for the week:
“Tomorrow is not promised, nor is today. So I choose to celebrate everyday I’m alive by being present in it. Living in the present means letting go of the past and not waiting for the future.”
