Have you ever felt yourself going into a negative thought chain? Do you feel like you just can’t help yourself when you dwell on negative thoughts? You should note that, those negative thoughts try to hijack your mood and leave you feeling bad.
Negative thoughts are the worst when you already got something difficult or challenging. It makes you feel bad. Most times, we all have negative thoughts that come up against our will, but what do we do when they come up? How do we stop those negative thoughts from making an uncomfortable situation even worse?
The most important thing to do is to ask yourself, Is it worth it?
If your mind is fixated on a certain situation, ask yourself, is it actually worth the time? According to Niels Eek, “ask yourself if looking over a certain situation will help you accept it, learn from it and find closure”. Actually, the fact that such situation is not helping you move forward, is not motivating you to take productive action and is not helping you to come up with healthy solutions to a problem, then, it is actually not worth it.
While trying to get negative thoughts off your mind, it is pertinent to note that they’d keep coming back. But, anytime it does, you need to understand whether those thoughts are actually helpful. If it’s not, try to set it aside and keep doing what you need to do.
To stop dwelling on negative thoughts, you have got to change the way you think because it is the whole determining factor of where you go in life. You are where you are today because you thought yourself to the position. If you don’t like the position, then, think yourself out of it.
Also, you are how you think! You can’t make a world, but you can make your own world. Your mind never turns off because it works 24/7. So, you need to change your attitude to help you think positively.
