From Coping with Trauma related Dissociation:
.
Chronically traumatized people often suffer from persistent core beliefs. These are deeply rooted convictions that typically involve all-or-nothing thinking without balance or nuance.
*
“Things never work out for me,” “People always try to hurt me,” I am completely stupid and unlovable,” or ” There is no safe place.”.
*
These beliefs often contain words like always, never, or none. Such thoughts and beliefs can profoundly influence, reinforce, and intensify negative emotions.
*
Negative core beliefs are reinforced over time by negative emotions, perception, and predictions, and by additional negative life experiences.
*
The same is true for positive core beliefs and attendant receptions, emotions, and experiences.

My two cents: Basic Neuroscience: What fires together wires together, where we place our attention grows, and where we withdraw withers and dies.
.
.
Mindfulness then could help us let go of negative beliefs.
.
.
We could focus on positive beliefs or let go and just be present empty of thought.

Perfection is not the goal, improving daily is part of the journey.
