You would think that not believing a lie would be easy right? Obviously it’s not true.
The fact is a fabrication is just that, it’s a lie, it’s been made up and is an untruth but what if you’ve been told this lie over and over again. What if you’ve been told you are not worth anything? It’s a LIE. What if you were taunted that you’d never be happy? It’s a LIE. What if you’ve been told you are ugly and nobody will want you? It’s a LIE. What if you’ve been told the only way is out is death? It’s a LIE.
These lies are sometimes inflicted upon us in an angry moment….. it may have been someone who entirely thought that you would forget what they uttered, just an ‘in the moment anger insult’. Isn’t it funny that our minds gravitate to the negative words people say to us? Isn’t funny or maybe not so funny… how our minds repeat negative slurs we hear other people say. The snears, the accusatory voices, the nasty words that stain our minds and repeat over and over, and over again.
As humans, we do tend to sway to the negative rather than the positive BUT we also have the power to retrain our minds to focus on the positive… it’s been said that we can break bad habits in 21 days and in the same way, we can also make good habits in 21 days.
We have control over our minds, we have the power to flush our minds of the unnecessary jibes that others or our own self-hatred may have inflicted upon us.
If you feel as though you’re a negative person, I’d like to suggest that you do this exercise for 21 days. Try to write something positive about yourself; if there has ever in your life been someone that complimented you about this positive trait, I want you to focus on this. Try to think of a new trait that is great about yourself every day of the 21 day challenge. It may be something that you’ve done that you don’t really think is important, such as, giving to homeless people, great sense of style or going the extra mile for your family members and friends.
Once you’ve done this for 21 days, I can guarantee that you’ll be a happier and grateful person who sees themselves in a positive manner. It’ll be hard to flush the toxic memories, labels and thoughts out of your mind at first BUT PUSH THROUGH….
‘God saw all that he had made, and it was very good’ Genesis 1:31
Hope for tomorrow!
