Personality Type One: The Reformer
The Rational, Idealistic Type

I now release...

  • holding myself and others to impossible standards.
  • my fear of losing control and becoming irrational.
  • my fear of being condemned for being wrong.
  • refusing to see my own contradictions.
  • rationalizing my own behavior.
  • obsessing about things I cannot change.
  • all bitterness and disappointment with the world.
  • feeling that other people's beliefs and values threaten mine.
  • believing that I am in a position to judge others.
  • driving myself and others to be perfect.
  • ignoring my own emotional and physical distress.
  • feeling angry, impatient, and easily annoyed.
  • fearing and disowning my body and my feelings.
  • allowing my desire for order and efficiency to control my life.
  • automatically focusing on what is wrong with things.
  • feeling that it is up to me to fix everything.

I now affirm...

  • that I can allow myself to relax and enjoy life.
  • that the best I can do is good enough.
  • that I am grateful that others have many things to teach me.
  • that I can make mistakes without condemning myself.
  • that my feelings are legitimate and that I have a right to feel them.
  • that I treat others with tenderness and respect.
  • that I am gentle and forgiving of myself.
  • that I am compassionate and forgiving of others.
  • that life is good and unfolding in miraculous ways.
