Your mental health is very important. It dictates your well being, thoughts, and your general state as a human being. This is why you need to avoid anything that will tamper with it all the days of your life. To help you with that, See Things to stop telling yourself to improve your mental health:
1. “I must be loved by everyone.”: It is normal to want to be accepted and loved by everyone, but it never ends well. It makes you start to change yourself for others. It even makes you start to focus on them and pay less attention to yourself. The honest truth is you will never be loved by everybody. It is impossible to make everyone happy at all times. Free yourself from that thought.
2. “I must be successful at everything.”: If you did not know, the most successful persons have failed severally. Embrace your own failures and accept your lack of success from time to time. Nobody is perfect.
3. “I must avoid all conflict.”: Staying away from conflict is not always the best. You will only be fixing things temporarily. Face whatever the issue as soon as possible, don’t choose the easy way out.
