“YOU ARE NOT YOUR THOUGHTS”
You might have heard it often but then how do you differentiate yourself from your negative thoughts?
Here’s a simple trick- Give a name to your mind! 🧠
Research suggests that by giving your mind a name, you make it a different person and hence you can choose to agree or not agree with it. This will help you BELIEVE that you are not your thoughts.
Pick any name you like- Mr. Bon, Miss. Jimmy...whatever
So whenever Mr. Bon says- “You are not worth it” or "you don’t deserve this”
You can take a deep breath and say-
“No Mr. Bon, you are wrong and I abso-fukin-lutely deserve it!” 😎 Here you can challenge your thoughts just like you would challenge the opinion of any other person.
Hope this tip helps you!
