How to Avoid and Deal with Your Negative Thoughts… Part #2
Negative thoughts that are left untended are like wounds that fester in time and paralyze the person who conceived them in the first place.
In our previous blog post, we explained the importance of dealing with your negative thoughts and introduced two methods through which you could take care of this dilemma.
In this article, I am going to explain three more ways that can really help you with your negative and detrimental thoughts.
A Thought: Stop Soothsaying!
If we spend too much time thinking about future possibilities, we will usually end up predicting the worst possible outcome for ourselves.
In a world where you are continually encouraged to be realistic about the probabilities of everything, it is easy to subconsciously embrace a pessimistic mentality.
When a presupposed mentality like this thinks about the future, negative outcomes as thoughts are an inevitable twist.
A proper way to deal with your negative thoughts is to stop predicting the future based on little and questionable evidence.
A Method: Reason with Yourself!
This might actually seem ridiculous, but you can try to reason with yourself when you feel you are starting to fall into that negative mind space.
This technique starts with finding a sentence or phrase you can recite to yourself in order to drive negative thoughts away.
No, it is not as confusing as it sounds!
You can simply approach this practice by taking a deep, relaxing breath and saying something like:
‘Just because I have struggled to find an appropriate job for a long doesn’t mean that I will never be able to find a good one in the future.’
Or something like:
‘Just because I made a tiny mistake here and there, doesn’t mean that I should underestimate myself or pressure myself to feel guilt.’
An Idea: Question Your Thoughts and Speak Up If They Seem Absurd!
One thing to do when negative thoughts start kicking in is to gather ample evidence to see if they are really worth all the trouble you are going through or not.
I want you to ask yourself this:
“Should I really be taking this thought that serious?”
This probably often leads you to say: “No, maybe I really shouldn’t.”
Because at that moment in time you might be exhausted, or maybe you worked so hard, and negativity is often trying to cloud your judgement. That is what it always does!
This will help you reconsider that things will not stay the same for the rest of your life.
Basically, this questioning technique works like a reality check. It simply helps you stay calm and collected, and see reason and sensibility through your thoughts!
Negativity is inevitable in the world that we live in today, but that does not mean you should leave it unanswered.
These methods and ideas will help you fight the negativity that has been building up inside you and free you of their cruel grasp.
Trust me, friends… together, we can fight negativity wherever we find it!
