One of the greatest and biggest lessons which you should learn in life is to travel light in your journey of life, and also enjoy good peace of mind. Your mental health is the dictator of your action and reaction.
Useless ideas or things clattering around you may drag you down, and you will get into some unnecessary hot balloon situation which can represent a great mental barrier which creates negative vibes.
That’s why you have to be brave in order to stop the things which weight you down. You can start meditating if you haven’t started already. You are never truly going to see what weighs you down until you see the retarded things which go in your head.
You probably keep thinking about a lot of useless things. Those are some mental barriers which stop you from living a better life. However, practicing meditation in some peaceful place, you are going to focus on your thoughts, and just then you are going to realize that some of them are useless.
Here are the 13 mental barriers which every one of you has to let go of:
Attachments are definitely one of the roots of all suffering. You should not take pride in your possessions which are of a temporary nature. You need to be thankful for your higher power bestowing on you with the possessions, instead of taking pride and feeling too much attached to them.
The sense of guilt felt in your mind is going to distract positive things. You need to stop feeling guilty immediately. Guilt is not able to solve something.
Feeling a constant fear of self-criticism will turn you to a situation of disempowerment. If you are self-esteem deficient, you are probably going to be carried away by self-criticism and come back to self-pity mood or suffering mental agony. An instant solution for you would be to remain inactive.
Prejudices are another serious mental barrier which promotes ill feelings and resentment. They can also turn risky and become a serious roadblock for having a good relationship. You have to let go of prejudices in order to promote a good one.
5. Negative thinking
Negativity has the ability to create a dark aura which does not allow optimist to come in. People with this problem always have a jaundiced view of the things, which causes all different types of problems.
6. Compulsive thinking
You have to learn how to avoid compulsive thinking and concentrate on efficacy, usefulness, and utility of it for permanent relationships.
7. Seek the approval of others
This is going to kill your drive and initiative and is also going to make you look small in other people’s eyes. Also, a state of the inferiority complex will set in.
Keeping grudges is not just a bad habit, but it can be bad for your well being and health. One research indicated that close relationship with mind and heart, and it may cause some serious health issues.
9. Limiting beliefs
There are beliefs which are self-imposed and self-created. You need to retrospect them in order to arrive at your usefulness. Simply grasp the idea that every single thing you can imagine is a real one.
10. Anxious thoughts
Anxious thoughts come for inbuilt anxiety and fears. They can distract your determination and goal.
Because your heart locks your mind, heartbreaks will create a mental vacuum. You have to forget those incidents and keep going for something new.
12. Bad memories
The best thing for you would be to forget bad memories and keep them at a great distance. You can also learn from them, but don’t keep them locked inside you. They have the ability to create huge damage.
13. Bad company
One wise saying says: “A man is known by the company he keeps.” As a rotten fruit can spoil the other fruits left in the basket, keeping bad company will do the same thing. It will take away the sheen in the quality of friendship. You should appreciate different forms of friendship and choose them judiciously. Let go of the negative individuals, regardless of how hard it would be for you.
