It’s so simple to let unhelpful opinion and feeling steal into your life and take over your mind health. That voice in your top can appear so loud and constant but you must keep in brain that you’re stronger than it. Sometimes all you need is a little helpful support to tell again yourself that all is going to be suitable.
Here are 4 positive things to tell yourself when you’re not feeling ok.
1. This too shall pass.
As cliche as it sounds, no matter how terrible you feel right now and how desperate your situation may currently seem, it’s just a fleeting moment in your life. While it may seem as though your world is ending, trust in the fact that the sun will rise again tomorrow and shine new, hopeful light on you and your predicament.
2. Celebrate your failures; they are a lesson.
As the wonderful Oprah Winfrey says, “Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another step to greatness.” When terrible things happen,it can be difficult to see the forest for the trees. However, in every failure or negative moment, there is a lesson to be learned.
3. You’re good enough to try.
Now that you know that failures should be celebrated and not feared, the time has come to realise that everything you’ve accomplished up until now and everything you’ll achieve henceforth comes from you taking a leap of faith and trying. No matter how convinced you are that you are going to fail, make the attempt: it’s the most important part of any endeavour and the only one that is really asked of you.
4. You are deserving of love.
You may feel terrible about yourself now, but I can guarantee that there is so much beauty in you. In times when you don’t feel good enough, try making a gratitude list…for yourself! Name three things that you love about yourself. Be as silly or as ceremonious as you like. If you’re having trouble with coming up with something, be grateful for your lungs, which allow you to breathe; your mouth, which allows you to smile; your soul, which makes you you. You are a thing of wonder; believe it.
