The Four Agreements

Found this Gem, From A reddit Recommends,(r/social) so why i
 have found this books so interesting is that, it focus more on learning curve
 and why growth mainly depends on the the deep knowledge you posses.

Here is the short ex on why my music addiction is killing me
 becaus of overthinking. (Although i’m going cold turkey now from this month)

This Is Why Exactly I Should Never Listen To Music

“You are walking in the mall, and you see a person you like.
 That person turns to you and smiles, and then walks away. You can make a lot of
 assumptions just because of this one experience. With these assumptions you can
 create a whole fantasy.”

Another over thinking
 take -

“If you live in a
 past dream, you don’t enjoy what is happening right now because you will always
 wish it to be different than it is. There is no time to miss anyone or anything
 because you are alive. Not enjoying what is happening right now is living in
 the past and being only half alive. This leads to self-pity, suffering, and
 tears.”

“Letting go of the past means you can enjoy the dream that
 is happening right now.”

“Don’t expect that you will never take anything personally;
 just do your best. Don’t expect that you will never make another assumption,
 but you can certainly do your best.”

Awareness

“The first step toward personal freedom is awareness. We
 need to be aware that we are not free in order to be free.”

“When you were a
 child this was not true; you didn’t have a choice. But you are no longer a
 child. Now it’s up to you to choose what to believe and what not to believe.
 You can choose to believe in anything, and that includes believing in yourself”

“Imagine living without the fear of loving and not being
 loved. You are no longer afraid to be rejected, and you don’t have the need to
 be accepted. You can say “I love you” with no shame or justification. You can
 walk in the world with your heart completely open, and not be afraid to be hurt.”

“Imagine living your life without being afraid to take a
 risk and to explore life. You are not afraid to lose anything. You are not
 afraid to be alive in the world, and you are not afraid to die.”
