We all have met those rare breeds of people, who seem to have their life put together in even the most testing of circumstances. They tend to dust themselves and march ahead, no matter how many curveballs are thrown their way. While from distance, it may seem like the universe is functioning in mysterious ways to make things work for them, the reality is that they know how to break away from the cycle of negative thoughts and toxic phrases that we keep feeding ourselves.


​The importance of feeding the truth to our mind

A lot of people don’t realise that the narrative and thoughts that we keep feeding our mind often plays a pivotal role in shaping our lives. So, if you tell yourself positive and realistic statements, you are more likely to build your mental strength to move forward in life. However, if you keep believing in toxic phrases and lies, they will ultimately hold you back and also harm your mental well-being. 

Below are the list of 5 toxic statements you need to delete from your life in order to build your mental strength and achieve almost anything you want:

​“I won’t be able to recover from the trauma of past”

If you keep believing that the demons you have wrestled with in the past will keep you from moving forward in life, you will forever be stuck with licking your own wounds. If you continue to feed your mind the narrative that you are still damaged, your brain will behave accordingly. Instead, embrace your scars and turn them into your strength. Accept the fact that you have been in a heart-wrenching situation and come out stronger. Do not hesitate to take professional help if the need arises.


​“Others are so much better than me!”

This is one of the most damaging statements, you can ever say to yourself or believe in. When you constantly repeat that others are way better than you and that is why they are succeeding, it can tremendously damage your self-confidence. Chances are when you feel everyone around is naturally gifted, ore attractive, more intelligent than you, you are not even going to give a shot to your dreams. The truth of life is everyone started somewhere and nobody becomes a master overnight. Sometimes taking the first step is the bravest thing to do and in this situation, it is telling yourself that you are good enough!


"My mental illnesses have made me weak"

If you dig a little deeper, you will know that some of the most courageous and inspiring people around you have battled mental health conditions, fought it and come out stronger! So, stop telling yourself that your mental health conditions are weighing you down. Instead, focus on what you can do to become mentally stronger and work on it every day.


​“I simply can’t do it, so why waste time trying”

If you believe in this statement, the battle is already over. When you cling onto negative beliefs like these, you actually hinder yourself from achieving your truest potential. Instead of underestimating your abilities and that beautiful mind of yours, try saying that you will learn the skills needed to do this job or get the work done. When you begin to put in the effort, instead of lying to yourself that you are not cut out for the job, it can make all the difference in the world.


​“I don’t have enough money, time and motivation”

The truth is nobody has it all figured out and we are all battling our own demons. But if you really want to create your dream life, you have to stop repeating that you don’t have the means to do so and take it one step at a time. Repeating these negative statements or feeding lies will only pull you down and keep you away from doing what you truly want. Want to build mental strength? Stop focussing on the 'don'ts' and start thinking about the 'dos'.
