You can wake up on the wrong side of bed, a bad night sleep, a weird dream or sometimes you just feel like rubbish, no real explanation for it.
You try to get out of your funk, but nothings working, you want to shout, scream, cry. You feel if you cry you just won’t stop.
We all have our own challenges in life, illness, family, work, the list could go on, the stresses can mount and you can feel overwhelmed by life. You just feel kicked down. If you could throw yourself on the floor throwing your arms around and crying like a baby, you would.
That might make you feel better for a little moment but it’s not going to take that internal sadness away.
Us human beans are built for fight or flight, we have thousands of thoughts everyday.
Unfortunately these thoughts can be self destructive, negative, demotivating and can cause us to tell ourselves the wrong story.
The story we tell ourselves can affect who we are and how we live, see life and ourselves.
- “Your rubbish, your worthless, you will never amount to much, you just can’t do it”
If we are telling ourselves that we are useless, unworthy, fat, ugly, then that is how we will see ourselves and those negative words lead us to feel down in the dumps and unworthy of following our real path.
If we change the story we can change our lives. A positive thought is thousands of times more powerful than a negative one.
You will find it hard to break the loop at first, looping in your old story of self doubt and self hatred but one step and one day at a time.
Take a good look at the words and things you say to yourself. Would you speak to someone else like that?
If the answer is no, then think about the positive, kind words you would use and write these into your story.
Speak to yourself in the mirror, tell yourself how good looking you are, that you love you, that your fricking awesome.
- “I love you, your so bloody brilliant, today is going to be a good day“.
Picking yourself up when your down can be hard work, it takes dedication to get yourself back on top.
