Changing your mindset

In rough times you tend to overthink things, or at least I do that. Which is not healthy for mind and body. You are constantly thinking about what is going wrong in your life, what could go better or worse compare your life with others. 

But is it helpful, does that change your situation? If it cannot be changed why worry over it. Change it or stop the negative thinking, in short let go of the negative feelings and thinking. I'm sure it's much easier said than done. We often are our worst enemies. We have a problem and in our mind we make it much worse than it acctually is. A problem is only a problem if you make it so, when you think it is. Most times it is a lesson to be learned.
By wanting to change things you most times need to change yourself first. When we make changes in ourselves, our circumstances change too. 

Everything happens for a reason; I am a firm believer of that. Plus nothing will go away before you have learned from it. You can ignore it but it will keep coming back until you have learned.
If you don't get what you wanted most times it means it wasn't meant for you and that something else is. That probably something better was on it's way for you. 

We have to be grateful and be in the present moment. Enjoy the present, don't live in the past or the future. You can enjoy the little things in life and be grateful for them.
How hard you find your life; try to experience joy in your life as well. Try to have a good time once in a while. Enjoy yourself. 

Don't compare yourself to others; Yes there are people who have it better but there are also millions of people who have it worse than yourself!
You are not a victim, only of your own thoughts and actions. Know that you can overcome your difficulties. Start by changing your thoughts. By changing your mindset you can begin a change in your whole life. Nothing lasts forever, so 'this too shall pass' is not only a saying. It will pass. Trust in that! Believe you can overcome it and work on it.

You are strong, Kate. You have been in 'hot water' several times since I know you and you always got out and survived. You are so much better than you think.
