Life, it is said, is a mind game; you’re limited only by your thoughts.
Consider this, how many times (even in a day) do you make up scenarios in your head about the development or outcome of a situation, forecasting what will happen without allowing time or evidence to play their part? How often do you jump to conclusions, lured by that pessimistic devil in your head? How soon do you judge without really knowing the facts?
We are subject to the tumultuous voices in our heads that speak only to us and highlight our greatest fears, concerns, and speculations.
We fall victim to our own overthinking. We sabotage ourselves, often out of fear that if things go too well, there is some disaster lurking in the corner.
We’re afraid of allowing ourselves to find happiness because in effect we’re led to believe that it doesn’t truly exist or that it is too rare to find.
We play mind games on our own selves. And that is the hardest thing to overcome.
