Your thoughts matter. Listen. What’s the internal monologue you’re hearing? Are your thought patterns automated on the same loop? Pay attention.
You don’t necessarily need better thoughts or more positive ones, you just need to know what you’re thinking and know those thought patterns aren’t you, so don’t identify with them. That’s it. There is no secret solution, no perfect recipe for self-improvement.
Once you can recognize your thoughts as just thoughts, life becomes less complicated. You’re able to detach from dominating monologues you’ve been hearing for years, which gives you the option to process differently. You are not your thoughts, just know what you’re thinking.
Rather than being your thoughts and emotions, be the awareness behind them.
The most complicated skill is to be simple.
