There comes a phase in our life when we can’t differentiate between what’s real and what our mind is making us believe. That thin line between fact and fiction gets all blurred up with our emotions and feelings.
We get so drowned in those emotions that we fail to become practical and rationalize our thought process. And that’s when our mental health starts declining.
How to differentiate between Actual and Mind-created problems?
You have to fact-check your own thought process. That should be your first instinct whenever you are in any problem. But that is the toughest part. Do you know why? Because of all our ‘human emotions and feelings’ and how we react to that problem.
We fail to think practically in highly emotional situations. We fail to even listen to other’s practical solutions to our problems because of our emotions. And it is justifiable as well because we are only humans and we are bound to react in a certain way.
That’s how God made us. We are not robots. We love, we hate, we cry, we laugh and sometimes we create problems that weren’t even there in the first place.
Practical vs. Emotional
What kind of a person are you when you are facing a problem? Do you behave rationally and practically or give in to your emotions?
I’m a highly emotional person who gets practical when she realizes that she has drained all of her emotions out and now is the time to get practical and end that problem ASAP.
I went through a phase where my work environment got to me so much that it made me create problems for my own self.
Sometimes when you are living in a toxic environment, or when you don’t get those good vibes from someone or something, your instincts (gut feeling) conveys that feeling to you which we often overlook and consider it just another thought.
In situations like those, one should trust their instincts because that gut feeling is mostly true in every situation.
You are the Solution to your own Problem
We often look for answers in others when the solution lies within us. Now, this statement isn’t valid for all our problems. Sometimes the solution might lie somewhere else. But the solution usually lies within us for our ‘made-up problems’.
When our brain created those problems which weren’t even there in the first place, then we have to train our mind for ‘problem-solving’ rather than ‘problem-creating’.
We are our own best friend and our own worst enemy. The difference is who you want to be for yourself? Choose wisely.
So, whenever your mind overthinks and creates unnecessary problems for you, just fact-check whether it is actually true or just in your mind and take action accordingly!
