“What you think is what you get. If you think negative thoughts, you release neuropeptides, If you think positive thoughts, you release endorphins.”
Some of us are totally unaware of the thoughts that run through our minds, and we assume that those thoughts are the truth of the way things are. This is the way I used to be for the most part in my immature states of being. I was not told that lies can go through your mind, so I believed everything I heard inside as well as outside.
Discernment is not one of my natural gifts. It is something that I had to learn, and I am still learning.
Negativity was the norm, so being positive was considered weird. I remember a time when I was a teenager, I was told not to smile so much because it was not normal.
Smiling is my natural state, so I took it to mean that I am abnormal, and that is why people were so mean to me.
I am thankful that I stayed committed to my change because I came across some wonderful people that set me straight.
The total flooding of the mind with negativity, as happens with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder can be changed, but it takes serious commitment to the process.
The negativity becomes a way of life, so changing it requires persistent conscious effort, and the willingness to feel uncomfortable at times, as the unknown can be perceived as scary. Change is going from the known to the unknown. Whenever there is growth, a bit of the previously unknown becomes the now known.
We are in constant change, but sometimes events happen that knock us down, stopping the progress of growth. How long that pause is, is up to us.
All of the people listed in this article are there with their hand out to help us up. Grab hold of as many as you would like to make the transition easier, and find others that are not on the list.
We’re fighters. that is how we got here, and that determination is what is going to get us out. We just have to learn to apply it differently.
