Are you doing that?
That’s something that I’ve been very guilty in
the past. In fact, so much so that a point that
pushed me to the point that i needed treatment
for depression and anxiety and that I suffer
quite often with because of it.
I build things up in my mind, I tell myself stories,
and I start to believe them for being real.
and i need to remember just because i think it
or im worried about it doesn’t mean it’s real.
In fact, more than half of the time I’m fine at
the moment though dont worry haha.
Every time i feel anxiety, and stress it’s because
im building things up in my head
The reason I’m sharing this with you is because
I’m so passionate about helping people just feel
‘better’ I know its not as fancy as helping people
lose stone after stone etc. but if i can make
people feel better im a happy man….
I look at everyone else’s news feeds and I compare
myself. I feel like I’m a failure, I feel like I should be
And I beat myself up about it.
So much to the point that almost prevented taken
action at times (in fact i wouldn’t have taken action
on them without Elly).
But, I definitely got better coping mechanisms with it
now, and I start to notice trigger points when I’m about
to start believing my own stories.
And that is by taking a step out and asking myself
if it’s really true.
Because half of the time, the stories that I’m telling
myself really are true. I don’t need to beat myself
up about it, I don’t need to start attaching any
emotional feelings towards these stories.
So if you’re somebody who’s also walking around
believing your own stories, I encourage you to ask
yourself are they really true.
And if they’re not, perhaps re-align your thinking or
certainly at least clear your mind to remove any
emotional connection to these stories.
I do this more in my mind now but in the past i used to journal it.
Because it’s never going to end a positive life if you don’t.

(stress hormone) levels in the body can really impact your
