Break The Self-Destructive Pattern

Everybody has voices in their head, and quite frankly,
most of the time, they are not your own.
Messages pass through here and there
to plant ideas or bring up a thought.
Either to do with subconscious
thoughts or feelings.

Depending on how tuned in you are
with your body will determine
the control of your mind.

Sometimes there will be an overwhelming feeling that you can't quite pinpoint.
That's a huge indication to take a step back from whatever it is you're doing,
breathe, look around, see things in front of you, touch anything that is in your sight,
write what you are grateful for - to bring you back to the present moment.

Specific thoughts can be sporadic - confused, scary, sad and angry.
Maybe you don't know why but it's up to you how to manage them.

Either you'll get hit with a tidal wave
and go for the ride,
or you can learn to dive
through the motion,
feel it move through your body
and know it won't last forever.

Suppose you are learning to better yourself, taking the steps daily to be healthy and mindful.
Sometimes the thoughts can be dark and want to pull you back down to where you're familiar.
It's when you at your most uncomfortable state in all aspects, you have to gain control and say;

I am not these dark thoughts
I am not these bad feelings

I am full of joy and light
I am full of good feelings

You have to know when to say no.

You have to know when you need space and time for yourself.

You should see the difference between your thoughts/feelings

and an external thought/feeling moving through you.

Be conscious of who you surround yourself with,

what you surround yourself with, what you watch,

listen to and consume.

As that will ultimately have a significant impact on your well-being.

Growth is by all means not easy, but it's a task well worth it.

A time of vulnerability.
