Fake It ‘Til You Make It

Published February 5, 2022 by tindertender

What we tell ourselves, our subconscious mind believes.

Most people are in the habit of expressing discomfort, passionately, and in doing so perpetuate more discomfort.

To break this cycle, one must begin to claim affirmative statements. Even if the statement is not felt at the time, saying a positive actually flips the narrative.

As a young person, I recognized and practiced …. when in a foul mood, to smile. To simply smile and tell myself everything was working out as it should for my highest good. Doing this simple thing would flip the script.

Making lists of gratitude is another way. When feeling very negative, rather than spewing about everything that is going wrong, or vomiting toxic emotions into the world, start stating aloud everything that can be thought of to be grateful for. The mood will shift, pretty quickly.
