Changing the way I think about situations and the outcomes...
by Jack King
I am 25 years old and I struggle with the negative thoughts and the the outcomes they produce before even attempting to solve the situation.
I have a physical injury that my mind tells me it will never heal if I don't take time off work. I go through scenario after scenario to try and find solutions, but some how come up with ways that it wont get better.
I have a low self esteem rooting from past and present failures, and I beat myself up for not achieving my goals and aspirations. I am a very driven individual with so much to live for, and I am letting false thoughts dictate the outcome which is usually negative. I tell myself that I can and I will, except sometimes I don't truly believe it.
Why do I ultimately believe the negative before the positive? Do I need to just keep working at attaining a more confident, positive perspective? I am in a state of dire need and wold appreciate your thoughts and concerns. Thank you...
