If we are honest, we all sometimes catch ourselves stuck in negative thoughts.
None of us have immunity to negative thoughts hidden in our minds.
However, this does not mean you have to succumb to them. Whether your negative thinking is a common occurrence and happens only once in a while, it is vital for the happiness and success you can manage to recognize when you are thinking negatively and to consciously change your mindset to positive.
Below we present nine of the most common negative thoughts which tortured people and some tips to restore your positive thinking:
1. “I must be just as others want.”
Life offers an invaluable opportunity each time to see and understand who you really are. Do not miss the opportunity!
Sometimes we get lost completely in the attempt to live our lives for others, trying to meet their expectations and do things just to impress. Stand a moment and think. Behave in a manner that truly expresses?
Remember your own needs and goals. Remember who you are. Live, act and love in order to become happy because when the time comes you will not be true to others unless you are true to yourself first.
2. “I do not like others because they are different.”
Give a promise to yourself and stop to see all tragic even before anything happens, breathe deeply and calmly and love others and yourself unconditionally. Promise to laugh at your own mistakes and realize that no one is perfect.
We’re all people. The feeling of self-worth can flourish only in an environment where individual differences are appreciated, mistakes tolerated, open communication and rules are flexible.
3. “The lives of others is much easier than mine.”
Nobody has easier life than you. All of us give our own battles. The most powerful are not the ones who have power you can see but those who have gained incredible internal battles about which we know nothing.
The assumption that someone things have come more easily all it does is to build barriers between you.
4. “I’m not skilled enough to make a difference.”
Many of the biggest successes in your life will come when no longer will be able to praise someone else, while they will pass through many difficulties. So, regardless of what happens in your life, be nice and polite.
Think before you speak and do. Always remember that your words and deeds may be forgiven, but not xechniontai. You can make a difference, so I grab every opportunity you presented to achieve. No act of kindness, no matter how small it is, will never be wasted.
5. “The others are to blame for everything.”
If you sit for a long time and blaming others for things they did or did not do, they knew or did not know, you will remain stuck in the same spot until you die. To throw the blame to others is easy, because it means that you do not have to do anything, just have to sit on your whole life.
But that is life, is death. What gives life to you and your relationships and eventually you go forward is to accept where you are at present just as they are and the opportunities it gives you every moment.
6. “I will never forgive others.”
Often we keep our hearts closed not because we are afraid that others will leave us, will disappoint us or will cease to love us, but because we believe that it will not survive the pain of this loss.
It is indeed very ironic, considering that only through the pain of this loss will realize our true strength. The truth is that a strong heart can love, but an even stronger heart still loves even though he has hurt.
If someone hurt, or betray you crack your heart, forgive him because he helps you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious when you open your heart. You are now stronger and better equipped to find the love you deserve.
And one last tip: do not let the wrong people from your past to keep you away from the right people here. Forgive and move on.
7. “I’m too busy to deal with my family and friends.”
People take for granted today, perhaps the only ones who will need tomorrow. Never be too busy to take the time to those who are important in your life, because sooner or later it will seek the company of those people that make you smile.
So find time for those who will help you love yourself more. Put them in your schedule as busy you are, it is worth it.
8. “It’s OK not to tell the truth sometimes.”
In fact matter. It is sobering to think how many people are surprised by honesty and how few by the lie.
Do not become one of them. Always supporting the truth. Those who surprised easily be surprised more often and you are the ones to accomplish this with your sincerity and actions every day.
The secret here is that a sincere loving heart is the beginning of all good in this world. It is what unites and keeps us together in easy and difficult.
9. “My current errors show that I am a loser.”
This mindset will be crazy and you and everyone else around you. When finished each day and finish it. You’ve done the best you could. Sure there are a few mistakes and irrational things, but it is advisable to leave them behind and forget them as soon as possible.
Remember, failure does not define you, your determination will do this. Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, more accurately than before. Tomorrow is a new day. You should start calmly and very high moral and not be charged with the old meaningless things.
