Fighting negativity

Earlier, while reading a book I started contemplating my life and the way I see things.

I always felt that no one likes me and no one ever appreciates me. I felt like if I disappear one day no one would ever notice or miss me.

I feel like my boyfriend’s family will not like me and they are against me. But, it’s not like that. It’s just the way I think. (Hopefully)

I feel like if I don’t show up to my friends that’ll be fine with them and won’t feel like someone’s missing.

Full of negativity.

But, I don’t like it. I’ll change it. I’ll do everything to change it. So help me God.

I hope people with similar thinking as mine can change it also. I hope everyone well.

Please try to turn that negative talking in your head into positive thinking, even if for a few minutes! I have faith in you that you can do this! Sending you peace!

Being liked or loved made me sad. I found out that was because I didn’t like myself. I gave away too much control of my feelings by making up the things people thought about me. The part that makes it doubly irrational is that I never made up good things about me. I control only me, and that is a big enough job. What others think about me is theirs to deal with. I like myself or I make change until I do.

This stuff is hard, but it’s worth it.

Exactly, I never made up good things about me. That’s why I think people also see the same. Thank you. I’ll do my best to live ignoring negativity!

Ive been thinking about this too. My perspective is off, leaving my passionate life for a scary depressing one. I am being really aware of my thinking and will let go of the all that negativity. I did it once years ago and mindfulness meditation really helped.

Best to you! I really think we both will be successful. Let me know from time to time how its going? :)
