TDN #08: How Pleasing Other People is Ruining Your Mental HealthTDN #08:

Hey friend, how are you doing today?

Are you having a nice Sunday or are you still recovering from last week? I know I am still stressed and uninspired.

Did you know that feeling burnt out is related to stress and anxiety? These feelings often look the same but aren’t. If you’re burnt out, it’s too late and you need to recover. If you’re feeling anxious, you’re in the middle of the process to be burnt out very soon.

Be one step ahead.

Recognize the signs of being stressed and anxious. It might help you feel better.

Most people don’t care about themselves, these people burn out without noticing it early, they feel like what they’re doing is normal and they just get sick and have a lot of headaches.

It’s not normal, you’re burning out because you’re pleasing other people.

And that’s ruining your mental health.

One of the things that made me feel anxious for the past couple of years is watching the news. 

It’s only doom and bad things.

But I wanted to stay up to date as well, just with unbiased news reports. Then I found out about 1440: News Without Motives

Obviously, you’re still seeing the bad stuff, but it’s reported in a non-hysterical and commercial way. These are the good guys

Confidence to do What You Want

There’s a lack of confidence.

Lacking confidence can really bother you in your daily life. Social anxiety is something that comes hand in hand with this.

Major mental disorders do not usually manifest themselves out of nowhere.

It is beneficial to be aware of emerging symptoms or early warning signals and take action as soon as possible. Early intervention may assist in lessening the severity of a medical condition.

Once you’ve recognized potentially troublesome circumstances, pay close attention to your internal dialogue.

You should meet people who make you happy, obvious ones, right? Not always.

The people with whom you spend the majority of your time have a significant impact on your emotions, how you see the world, and the expectations you have of yourself.

When striving for greater levels of success, you must surround yourself with individuals that inspire you and push you to higher levels of achievement.

When you surround yourself with positive individuals, you are more likely to embrace powerful ideas and view life as something that happens to you rather than something that happens to them.

In the same way that you gain from surrounding yourself with individuals who make you happy, you suffer when those in your professional or social circles are negative or limited in their perspectives.

Always keep in mind that the people with whom you spend the majority of your time will shape who you ultimately become.

It is not always easy, but it is well worth the effort.
