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.

  1. I really love it when positivity and negativity is being discussed.

    We have to be positive. Itโ€™s expected that bad days might come and negative thoughts might follow, it might be unavoidable.

    But what makes the difference is we trying to seek out that positive thing that will erase the negativity from our minds.

  2. “Acknowledge their presence, but donโ€™t let them overpower the situation.” love this. It is the awareness that is the first step that leads to change. If one person becomes aware of his thoughts, he then possess the ability to choose better action: if he will continue to empower the negative thoughts or crush them immediately.
