Don’t let them get the best of you

There are times when negative thoughts want to get the best of you. Those days when you’re in a rut. Those nights when you can’t sleep and that inner voice drags you into a pit of disillusion.

When negative thoughts want to get the best of you, remember that negative thoughts don’t come from a place of love.

Say, for example, when you judge yourself for overeating or indulging on a sweet, and you make some harsh remarks about it, the love within you will not be harsh. The love within you will be understanding and patient.

Negative thoughts will also lie to you. They don’t let you appreciate your life. If the negative thoughts are about yourself, they don’t let you see your beauty and value. If the negative thoughts are about your life, they prevent you from appreciating all of the goodness already present in your life.

You have to be stronger than your negative feelings and thoughts. Acknowledge their presence, but don’t let them overpower the situation. Negative thoughts and feelings can inspire you to get back on track and to do the things that will bring you back to a peaceful state of being.
