Hello everyone. What I would like to share with you today is a trick that I use in helping to keep my emotions in check when I feel overwhelmed. It
is a simple belief and idea that has helped me hold together through alot of crap. Every time that I think I'm going to bend fold or break I say to
myself "You are only halfway there"
This ideal came from a rise against song.
Now in the song the singer uses the lines;
When enough is enough
That's when you know your halfway there.
It is these words that that give me the strength to carry on in an uphill battle against life. Every time that I think enough is enough, I just tell
myself that i'm only halfway to my snapping point. Something that helps me in this is to envision yourself at the end of your rope, then picture your
"rope" doubling, a representation of your patience with life.
For it to trully work though you must believe yourself. Every time you say those lines in your head, do so with intention, and always believe
yourself. It is the BELIEF that you are only halfway there that is going to make it so you ARE only halfway there.Without the belief in yourself this
will never work.
This little technique has helped me with my anger issues(of which there were lots), it has helped keep my sanity, and has improved my patience with
the world. I hope that people find this little trick as useful as I have.
