This is a lovely way to write about negative thinking.
Everyone should heed your warning and advice. Negative thinking is the enemy of progress and self-fulfilment – the ball and chain of the mind.
I have found my negative thoughts to be subtle and sly, with the voice cleverly justifying all its advice.
My career has become stuck because I listened and believed I wasn’t able for promotion. I find it hard to meet new people because the voice tells me nobody would be interested.
Through meditation I have come to recognise the pattern of my thoughts. Although I have more work to do, I’m learning to ignore the stupid narrator.
