Many of these patterns were destructive. For example if as a child your father enjoyed running around, laughing and making a lot of noise, and his mother always told him to be quiet so as not to disturb the neighbors. Your father may have learned not to take joy in laughter because of the negative consequences. Then, when your father saw you running around and laughing as a child, he may have told you to be quiet so as not to disturb the neighbors. This advice was not based on having actually checked to see if the neighbors were annoyed (or if they could even hear it), but rather on what he had learned from his parents. And as a result, you may have also grown up feeling disconnected from your sense of childhood joy. This kind of programming has lead to the formation of many unconscious beliefs and limitations.
