I know people say lying to yourself is impossible but I disagree.
Stop telling yourself you think you’re in a bad spot or that you should’ve done better on that test. Tell yourself it can only get better, and that you tried your best. Stop continuously bringing yourself down- it has no (I mean no) positive outcomes. Even when it’s hard, tell yourself it could be worse…
Your mind should be used to bring yourself up & not tear yourself down.
If you continuously tell yourself that things will get better you’ll eventually believe it (or so I would like to think)
Doesn’t that mean lying to yourself isn’t such a bad thing?
