“New beginnings are often disguised as painful endings…” – Lao Tzu
No one likes a painful ending.
If we have difficulty transitioning to our new beginning, our minds can get locked into feeling negative about our life, and if we have difficulty seeing the positive, our hearts can get filled with anger and resentment over feeling forced into something else.
No one actually enjoys living in this state, but when we feel trapped, it feels impossible to change or to move forward.
Step one to breaking free of this mind pattern:
Becoming aware of our thoughts in a non-judgemental way. Why is that important?
When we’re in a judgemental mindset, we actually reinforce our negative thought patterns by speaking unkindly or harshly to ourselves.
Try practicing looking at your life in a compassionate light, telling yourself that you are doing the best you can right now!
Non-judgemental thinking is difficult to practice when we’re used to beating ourselves up emotionally. It requires suspending the negative thoughts, looking at things objectively and not negatively editorializing every action or thought.
I found it helped me to have a few positive quotes to speak to myself as I tried to look at my life in order to teach myself to see the previously hidden (from myself) positives in my life.
Positive reinforcement helps to rewire our brains to be able to start functioning in a more positive environment.
The benefits this gives to our mental, physical and emotional health are huge!
