Negativity strikes us only when we are at our weakest, that should tell you something.
Becoming weak is incredibly different to having a weakness, because a weakness is something you fall back on, keep going towards or purposely go back to, a weakness is a choice. However becoming weak is almost like a setting you can’t switch off.
We have this glitch in our system from time to time but this doesn’t mean we can’t fix it or be fixed, just like any engineering it takes time and careful handy work to get things up and running again.
I treat my mind this way too, there are tons of things that take me to that “glitch” but they are my weakness, almost certain to cause that inference in my journey, it’s my choice to let it become more than my goals or my aspirations sometimes I forget the whole saying of “never move backwards” but it’s hard, truthfully I’m not going to lie because I’m a real ass bish.
It’s so hard to not move backwards! It’s like trying a new candy for the first time, you help yourself to as many as you like because simply you like them, but then they start to run out, the box is almost empty so you savour every last one but don’t think to stop, and then suddenly they’re gone.
And you wish you had taken it slower, appreciated that you were content with the full box knowing they would last a long time but instead you became hasty and irrational. You made it your weakness.
The repition is exhausting in fact it’s painful, trying to break a habit is hard. Once you get comfortable with enabling yourself it becomes almost impossible!
The weakness or the “glitch mode” can come in many forms it could be a tv show, an ex, a food! Lol literally anything but the most important thing is to differentiate between a harmless weakness and a self destructive one.
I know chocolate is one of my weaknesses 😬😭 is it self destructive? Probs not, but boy it does not help my skin when I’m trying to be all flawless or waheva but it taste damn good.
A few steps to break away from the glitch.
- Limit visual/ physical contact
- Avoid run in’s “if it applies to a person”
- Learn to substitute with something uplifting and positive
- Distract/ prevent the urges to go back to it
- Talk about it with somebody you trust
- Learn to forgive and forget!
- Keep your mind active
- Read a good book!
- Ask yourself is it worth it?
