The things that happened in the past are the things that aren’t happening right now. Stop locking yourself in the darkness if you want to be free. Stop holding on to the negativity of the past and reach into the light of the present and the future. Release the heavyweight that burdens you if you entirely want to move on. Let go of the things that cripple you and be free. Stand up, fight, and move on.
“Holding on to pain doesn’t fix anything. Replaying the past over and over again doesn’t change it, and wishing things were different doesn’t make it so,” says Ilene Strauss Cohen Ph.D.
There’s always a moment for you to create the best life. You only need to stop allowing negative thoughts from stealing the joy you have. Don’t ever let it enter and live inside your head. Because if you continue to ignore the existence of the negative things around you, you’ll end up under its control. Sadly, it is the worst part of the battle that you might have to take.
It’s true that there are times that you won’t be able to handle all the life’s dilemmas and you will suffer from the pain and agony it brings. But it doesn’t have to stop you from moving forward. That’s life. The only way to handle all the emotional and psychological suffering is through your willingness to create a difference. Therefore, never allow it to invade your mind, change the way who you are, and affect the way you see things.
The Battles Of Your Mental Health
Each area of your life follows an order of existence. It doesn’t stay in one particular place but moves around in circles. The cycle of sadness, sorrow, anxiety, stress, and depression creates a system that blocks you from achieving what’s good in the world. By the time you notice the changes it could bring to you, you already might suffer more than you know.
When there’s a piece missing, you can expect something to fill that up. It could either be good or bad things, depending on what’s your current situation. But if your mind allows deterioration, then it is going to be so much harder for you to continue living. So before you make decisions that will affect the future, always consider taking the time. Breathe and picture out everything in your head first. Don’t rush into giving in, but don’t hold back to what makes you whole. Be prepared in facing every trial along the way and never surrender regardless of what happens.
“It hurts. I get that. But what you do with that hurt is probably more important than the hurt itself. Would you prefer to get backd to being an active liver of life? Or do you prefer to ruminate endlessly about the past and something that cannot be changed?” – John Grohol, Psy.D.
Motivation Attracts Positivity
It’s hard to control life and expect things to happen the way you plan it. However, the motivation and goals you have might change everything. If you focus on the good side, the reward of the hardship becomes ten times more fulfilling compared to the assumptions of getting it without spending an effort.
As John L. Schinnerer, Ph.D. wrote in his article, “If you are looking for the best results in your workforce, you will focus more of your time and energy on positive, internal motivation for yourself as well as others.”
Success is different when you put your heart and soul in it. It becomes something that pushes you towards happiness and satisfaction.
If you think about it, those people who are now experiencing a great life, they are not just lucky. They work hard on their dreams and make tons of sacrifices. They shed tears and sweat only to get to where they are. That’s because no one achieves anything without striving for it. No one becomes happy without telling themselves they have to. When things don’t turn out great for them, they immediately move on and start doing things all over again.
Your life is what you make. Every decision is your choice. So everything that happened and will happen to you is based on your thoughts, emotions, and actions. You can do anything. You only have to let go and move one.
