Change of Representations
Personal responsibility means deciding what I influence and what I accept. A necessary step in order to broaden these internal choice possibilities is being able to choose between the different self-representations. This is particularly important in the processing of internal conflicts, because psychological change happens when one can experience these conflicts in the activated state. On the one hand: “I feel (here and now), full of strength and have the desire to express myself clearly and concisely with my ideas!”. On the other hand: “Who do you think you are when you believe you can say something like that. You will only embarrass yourself!”.
