We all face challenges and crises at some stage of our lives. Nobody is exempt. We often underestimate our own potential to cope during those challenging times. The mind will always find its own place. It can make a Heaven out of Hell or a Hell of Heaven. It’s not actually what happens to us that matters, it is more the importance we attach to it and how we deal with our situation.
Resilience is a unique journey for everybody. We need to “box clever” during a crisis. We need to protect our health at all costs. To do this, we must work at becoming rational thinkers. Prolonged stress eats away at our health and happiness.
Our Internal Self-Talk and Our Interpretation of Past and Present
Exploring our Thoughts:
• Is what we’re thinking helpful to our current situation?
• Is it absolutely true?
• What does it benefit us to be so annoyed?
• Is there another way of making sense of this?
• How much does this really matter after all?
“Over analysis can lead to paralysis”, so why do we over-analyze situations? Always remember you are not on your own with whatever issue you have right now. You share challenges and imperfections with your fellow human beings. We all make mistakes, but always keep in mind worse things happen to others. You need to mind yourself and not beat yourself up.
