Let thoughts be

The most painful thoughts occur in our heads when we resist them by wishing them away and thinking they should not be there. What you should actually do is just let them be. For example, let's say you are trying to go to sleep and you live in the city. You hear traffic and it is bothering you. When you wish for it to be gone and long for silence, doesn't that drive you mad? Sound is innocent; it's your interpretation of that sound that turns it into noise. So, when you let it be and stop fighting it, that's when you discover peace. The same goes for the traffic of thought activity in your mind. It's just sound. Don't let your mind turn it into noise and cover up your peace. Do these instructions help? Post in the comments how you're doing with this to let me know!

~ Thanks to all. Thanks for all. ~

Speaking of thanks for all, I was hoping we could acknowledge everyone who comments below. I know it seems like a small gesture, but many people here have never opened up to anyone before and being open and honest with strangers can be quite scary. So, if we could show our gratitude by giving their comment a simple reply or heart, I’m sure they would really appreciate your team support. What do you say?

The greatest key to mental health

Practicing mental health exercises and being at peace with yourself and your situation has nothing to do with the obstacles that will constantly be around you. Even if you did remove the greatest challenge of your life, another greatest challenge would present itself. Mental health is all about building yourself and removing your demands for the way the world should be. By all means, strive to make the world a better place, but don't wait for that to happen before you love yourself. What do you think?

The importance of falling

It's so easy to wish to redo the past or remove the trauma that hurt us the most, but if we did that, how much would we grow? The only reason I am here, running this group and with the education I have, is because of my pain. Take that away and you take all this away too. You can't have strength without weakness or growth without challenges. Are we not given the gift of immaturity so that we may also experience the gift of maturing? Are we not knocked down so that we may stand up? Do we not all have to die, so that before that, we may live?

Make your life your friend

Working on making the present moment your friend is a practice embraced by many who seek mindfulness and inner peace. By accepting and embracing the present moment, individuals often find greater contentment, reduced stress, and increased resilience. On the other hand, resisting the present moment can lead to frustration, anxiety, and a sense of disconnect from reality. While resistance might provide temporary relief or distraction, it usually doesn't offer a sustainable solution. Ultimately, learning to befriend the present moment can be a powerful tool for personal growth and well-being. How many people work on making the present moment their friend? On the other hand, how many people resist the present moment? If so, does it work?

Change is uncomfortable

It's so easy to hold yourself back from becoming your greatest self because what is required to do so is uncomfortable. Please don't become complacent with your transcendence. I know stepping out of your comfort zone is scary and we do so much to avoid it, but it's such a great gift to give to yourself. How do you push yourself to do this?

The power of working on yourself

One of the best things I ever did was to start investing in myself. Practicing good physical and mental health is so rewarding and the more you do, the more you can do. Best of all, you can do it for free. There are loads of things you can do at home to better yourself and you can learn a lot about yourself in the process. Do you see yourself in either of the two categories mentioned in the picture? What does this tell you about yourself?

The power of mindfulness

Here's an illustration I really like about how mindfulness externalizes thoughts so that you can watch them from a place of peace instead of fixating, fighting, and resisting them, which causes so much pain. Can anyone relate to this or practice it?

Forgiveness

One of the biggest obstacles I see with people and their mental health is saying "It's not that easy." I know it's not that easy. If it were easy, you would already be doing it. Having good mental health requires you do what is hard. One of those hard things is forgiveness. Many people will never apologize to you, and many will not even know they have trespassed against you. None of us are perfect. None of us are innocent. Please forgive each other otherwise the pain will just keep on spreading.
