Don’t be passive with emotional struggle

Although one thought isn’t going to make a difference in your mental wellbeing, ruminative, negative thinking has a cumulative, mind-body effect eventually contributing to anxiety or depression.
You need to know that thoughts matter and there’s an emotional and physical-chemical price to pay for needless shabby thinking.
Recognize that “shabby” negative thinking is often a result of mental passivity. Instead, start to become a more active thinker, especially when you’re feeling stressed and challenged.
Choose to actively reject insecurity-driven thinking (doubts, fears, and negatives). Starting today, take responsibility–one thought at a time—STOP dancing with shabby thinking. You can start with the mantra, “Stop it! Drop it!
