I have a family that loves and cares for me.
Whenever you feel low or under pressure, you might think that you don’t matter to anyone and that your life is not being valued. But this isn’t true. Just because your family and friends don’t say they love you every other day doesn’t mean they don’t love you. They do love you and you mean the world to your parents.
There are people in my life who believe I can do great things.
Not just parents but even teachers and friends know your abilities and what you’re capable of. So, even if at some point in life you face failure and feel broken, remember your English teacher who appreciated you for winning the state-level essay competition and the friends who believe you’ll change the world. That’s a source of great power.
Like every obstacle in life, this too shall pass.
You can’t just sit and weep over failure. Instead, you need to bounce back, work hard and make it happen. Crying over the challenges life throws at you will not help you overcome them. Instead, it will just pull you down. So, be strong, accept that life is full of ups and downs and like every other obstacle, this too shall pass with time.
I am a strong person and will get over this eventually.
Trust your inner strength and capabilities. Tell yourself that you’ve made it through many bad days of failure, anger, resentment, sadness and grief, and that this is just another such phase that you will make it through. Also remind yourself that overcoming this phase will make you even stronger than before.
I have everything that is required to turn the situation around.
You’re the only one who has complete power over your life. So it’s ultimately your choice to stand up straight and get over the phase or get sucked into deep negative thoughts and stay low. You have the potential to change your life around. Grab the opportunity, use your power, and bounce back to life.
My past is just a memory; it doesn’t exist anymore.
Your past is not something you can live in the present, so just let it go if it was a bad experience and makes you sad when you think about it. Tell yourself that it’s just a bad memory from your past which brings nothing but pain and unhappiness. So just push away those thoughts from the past and live in the present.
I’m not the only one around who’s having a tough time.
If you’re feeling lonely and depressed, tell yourself that you’re not the only person who has gone through a breakup or faced failure. There are thousands of people around the world who’re dealing with heartbreaking failure. Take comfort in the fact that you’re not alone. This will help you develop empathy for yourself and others.
I’m the only one who can make myself happy.
You’re key to your happiness. So if you keep thinking you had a bad day at the office or your breakup was unfair, you’ll remain in that state of mind. You can choose to leave this state and choose happiness. It could be by speaking to people who’ve always stood by you or appreciating the little things you’ve never had gratitude for.
