We have us.
We have our body then we have our mind.
Lots of stuff happens in our mind but mostly we focus on whats happening with our body.
We judge our size, our shape, hair, face, but we never take into consideration what is happening in our minds. A lot is happening in our minds and we never pay any attention to it.
There are rational thoughts and irrational thoughts.
True and false.
Often referred to as Anxiety.
There are the thoughts and fears that keep us from doing something stupid and there are thoughts and fears that keep us from doing something we love.
For example, Once upon a time there was Me and Me was on a camp. At the camp there was an activity, the activity was practically a pole in the air, the size of a power line pole thingy.You attach a safety vest and some ropes to you and climb up a ladder and walk across the pole. Me sat there waiting for Me’s turn. She really wanted to do it and she looked up at it thinking “You can do this this is easy”. Me was confident, even excited about the activity. She new she was capable of it. She had run, jumped and balanced across logs that were slippery and wet harder than this when they were on the ground.
Me was about to go up onto the pole, as she was climbing the ladder she suddenly stopped, she froze and said “I can’t do it”. The camp assistant was understanding, she said “it’s okay, it happens all the time.” The camp leader gave Me some time she let her go higher and hoist her down but Me couldn’t do it. Me was capable to do it, the only thing stopping her was the height. Something told her not to go up. Me wanted to and she knew she could.
This was FALSE. It was irrational. It was’t real.
You won’t be able to stop the lier the false thought telling you no but you will be able to seperate it from reality.
Next time you have a thought telling you no, detect it and see if its rational or irrational.
Real or not real.
True or false.
