A pause, even a long break, can be good to gather your thoughts and decide where you want to go next.
Whether you suffer from high or low self-esteem, you might find self-acceptance, self-awareness and self-motivation kinder to yourself, and to others.
Everyone has judgmental, even prejudicial, thoughts. Try to recognise these as just thoughts, you don’t need to believe them and you don’t need to act on them.
It is normal for your mind to judge, to declare you a failure or a success. The truth is that sometimes you fail and sometimes you succeed. Who you are doesn’t change.
Avoiding unpleasant situations works in the physical word, but avoiding unpleasant thoughts or feelings can make your pain worse.
Take time to notice the details in your everyday routines and discover the pleasures you miss when you’re in a rush or when your mind is elsewhere.
Your mind doesn’t always mean what it says. If it tells you you’re stupid or a loser, try repeating those words and soon they will lose their meaning.
Pause for a while, be patient and mindful, and let go of your desires, and you just might find the very thing you have been looking for all along.
You often know the answer to your problems, but sometimes you need someone to listen to you while you work out the solution. Sometimes you need a witness. Other times, you need to wtiness.
