Remember you are human. You are bound to fall, make mistakes, win and loose. undoubtedly you must keep it going. But you must remember You need a break! we all do. Mental breakdowns are real and they are typically dueto not giving your heart, mind and body a break. Things you need to give yourself a break from:
- Drama/ negativity
- social media
There are countless more, but i feel these are the top four things that constantly cause a lot of stress. Drama/negativity is something you must avoid. Gossip, idle talk, unknowingly criticizing , what you consume physically and mentally all have a play on the drama and negativity in your life. You have to want Positivity, peace and bliss to get it. You attract what you think and say. Give yourself a break! Read a good book, spend time in the library, Journal, meditate and ultimately PRAY!
Social media has to be one of the most draining things of the 21st century. It has cause countless problems for people in there public as well private lives. Give yourself a pure break from it! A lot of the things you see on social media are not real. A big problem a lot of individuals have is compare there life or success to other people they see on social media. Factually, you don’t know what these people had to go through behind the scenes to get ton the point they are today. They could be selling a dream making it seem far easier than what they had to go through. Or comparing your relationship or love life to what you see on social media. People are not going to show you the bad times, the fights, the tears and heartbreaks of the relationship. Everything seems like a fairytale. DO NOT compare your life to what you see online!!
There is no way with avoiding People all together. But, you can give yourself a well needed break and just give yourself time to self-reflect and think. I think everyone should do that atleast once a month. just give yourself a week away from the world and people and meditate and focus on the things you want in life. Surround yourself with people who help you grow and become better, not people who will lead you to destruction.
Can we really give ourselves a break from society? In a way yes! By going with the first three steps that is a way to get away from all the Hussle and bustle of society. Also I would suggest going to view places that have a lot of nature and not so much mainstream things, like the mountains or even the rural parts of the country.
In all, we ultimately need to give ourselves a break, this life is bound to keep going whether we like it or not. We can’t control time, the past or the future! But, you can ultimately focus on the now and work on healing yourself mentally and physically. The only way we can truly do that is by giving ourselves a break from the distractions and being more aware and in the present, and ultimately building a connection with the one that gave us life the creator!
