Depression = Focusing and over-ruminating on the past.

It’s absolutely fine to learn from the past! But you need to forget about the mistake(s) and focus on the lesson(s).

That, my friend, is one of the keys to living a healthy and successful life.

Repost:

LESSONS FROM THERAPY:
*Question your thoughts sometimes. Not everything you think is truth.
*You deserve the space you embody. Stand tall.
*Your attitude matters, and your mind-set shapes your experiences.
*Happiness is a feeling, not a goal. happiness can never be constant, and that’s ok.
*Stop looking for external validation. the opinion others have of you is not a mirror.
*You can be the kindest person in the world, and some people still won’t like you.
*If you don’t face your irrational fears, you allow them to control you.

As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

Thoughts and attitude towards life is an indicator of success or failure. Positive thinking leads to success whereas negative thinkers fall into the bucket of failure.
Thoughts of a person strongly affect his health according to the thoughts might think. If a person is a positive thinker, his mind grows and stays sound and healthy. It assists him in making decisions, leading tasks and taking risks.

On the other hand, negative vibes disturb the functioning of our brain. It compresses the mind that leads to failure, depression, anxiety or success. Positive thoughts are a sign of good health. Positive thinking is an approach to thinking about matters in a constructive way.

In this approach, the person is looking for a good news or plus point even in the bad news or unfavorable situation. It teaches you to stay calm and control your decisions.

The power of positivity...

Decisions of a person following negative thinking approach are controlled by his negative thoughts. In this approach, the person attains a skeptic attitude towards every prospect of his life.

Researchers proved that positive thinkers are long livers, stress releasers and have sound immunity system. Psychiatrists argued that positive thinkers have minimal chances of having any heart or mental disease.
They are mentally and physically strong enough to go through any tragedy or trauma. Nowadays, in an era where competitions are high, it becomes necessary to work hard and extra to survive. In this situation, the work of heavy load can easily be tackled if you have a sound mind and a healthy body.

The positive thinking approach has the power to boost your mental and physical health. You can transform your thoughts in a positive manner using the following tips.

1. Meditation
2. Explore bright side of everything
3. Enhance positive self-talk and self-motivation
4. Earn from failures and move ahead
5. Believe in Yourself
6. Set realistic goals
7. Don’t let your emotions get the best of you
8. Adopt a company of positive people
9. The best project to work on is yourself

Clients unless they are mandated to attend therapy can quit at any point. If you are in therapy and thinking about quitting, here is what you need to know.

Do not to quit abruptly. Honour your therapy experience by talking openly and honestly with your therapist about your intentions. This process is about you, not your therapist.

Ideally having 1 or 2 sessions geared to closing off your therapy experience is suggested whenever possible. This will be what is most productive in your day-to-day life moving forward. Plus the experience of a healthy good-bye goes a long way! Often we have negative experiences of good-byes in our life, the death of a loved one, a divorce etc. Do yourself a favour and make this one a different experience.

There are many reasons why one would want to leave or quit therapy. Financial costs, transportation to and from the appointments or just a general sense that therapy is no longer useful or maybe you are experiencing a decrease in the symptoms that led you to therapy in the first place. It could also be that you need a break or there is a lack of connection between you and your therapist or that the sessions are just too intense and you feel they are making your symptoms worse. Whatever the reason it is important to discuss your intentions to take a break or leave therapy all together with your therapist.

There are many reasons for discussing your intentions with your therapist rather than simply not showing up or ever calling for an appointment again.

Avoiding talking to your therapist about your intentions is likely something you are quite good at; avoiding potentially uncomfortable conversations. Could this be something you are familiar with? That you recognize you do in your day-to-day life? You are probably very good at avoiding things. Most of us are.

Talking to your therapist about wanting to leave therapy may make you feel really uncomfortable. You may think you might hurt your therapists’ feelings. But you won’t. It is important that you know this. Remember, this process is about you.

Attending therapy is hard work! You showing up for yourself in this way is an amazing gift you grant yourself!!!
