Self-doubt can be debilitating sometimes. You can go to sleep with a goal, have a restless night, your doubts can creep into your dreams, then all of a sudden that to-do list you made last night means nothing to you in the morning. An hour still in bed after the alarm goes off turns into three or four hours and…you’re stuck. What is the point? Nobody cares. Why don’t I care? What is the point? This thought goes on and on and on, and it takes sheer willpower to pick up the blankets and swing your leg over the edge of the bed.
Who made self-doubt so powerful? Why is the hole harder to crawl out of than it was to jump in? The thing is, it was you. It was always you. A negative thought crept in, and you allowed it to dwell and make itself comfortable. Then, it invited its friends over for a dinner party and what was meant to be a dinner party turned into an all-inclusive trip paid at your expense.
You are what you think, and what you think can also be a reflection of the people and things around you. Are the people who you have allowed to be in your space good to you? How do you feel when you spend time with this person or that person? Are you and that person contributing to each other’s lives in a positive way?
Things aren’t perfect. No one should expect it to be. It is important, however, to make sure that you can take care of your mental and emotional health in order to face another day. Tell a friend or someone you trust how you are feeling. Exercise. Sing. Watch your favorite TV show. Eat your favorite food. Do whatever you need to do to make sure those negative thoughts do not make a home in your head. Each day is an ongoing struggle, but you are going to lose a few battles in order to win the war.
