    Is Happiness Really a Choice? My Journey of Realizations and the Pain Body

    It’s a complex choice, not a “yes” or “no” choice, it’s multi-faceted. We choose to let go of the defense mechanisms that our pain body has put up, we chose to put in the effort to actually do something to work towards happiness by changing our thinking patterns and our behavior. We choose to stop feeding the pain body. We can think of change all we want, but that’s only a thought, action is required for real change.

    Just looking in the mirror will make you a brave human

    I like to use the mirror analogy to explain my thoughts sometimes, and this post will be about that. The mental mirror.

    The Suicidal, Catastrophizing and Anxious Minds We Don’t See

    These self-deprecating thoughts bring one’s value of themselves down. Think of it like this, you have an object, the value of that object has been depreciated so much that it has almost no value at all, and who wants an object worth little value and further depreciating value, you would want to get rid of that object.
