The good news is that a life script can be changed and rewritten. The key to this is realizing that this script, or self image, is merely a set of perceptions and beliefs stored in the subconscious and accepted as "true". Changing these beliefs can be accomplished in a variety of ways, once it is discovered that changing them is indeed possible and well within the mental capabilities of just about anyone. Whether through affirmations, visualization, hypnosis or some combination of these and other mental tools, one must be consistent and steadfast. Never give up on yourself. The old well-worn neural pathways will be easy to fall back into, which is of course a common occurrence with diet and exercise regimens - a couple of weeks and its back to the old habits. Lasting, permanent, healthy change develops over time just as the original negative habits did.
