I think we can all relate. Sometimes we whine and #complain about our circumstances. We #wish things were different. We feel overwhelmed by our situation and just want it to pass. But when it does, we often try to go back and reclaim our old life.
You’re not alone. People have struggled with the same problems for years.
Everyday, millions of people conquer overwhelming feelings and come out happy and alive on the other side.
Humans are built to overcome and succeed. We are not built to fail.
Feeling overwhelmed is a natural part of life, but dwelling on that feeling is dangerous. You have to believe you can overcome.
Our minds are powerful things. In the book, As a Man Thinketh, James Allen says:
“As he thinks, so he is; as he continues to think, so he remains.”
We have the power to control our thoughts, and as a result, control who we are.
When you’re feeling overwhelmed, your life isn’t falling apart—your thoughts are.
Take a minute to find and clean out all your self-deprecating, negative thoughts.
Worry never works. Let your worry go. It won’t be easy, but do it anyway. Write it down, walk it off, shift your thoughts and keep letting it go. And then do that again and again and again.
