No matter how much i strive to be positive and present, i bound to have a bad day every now and then. A bad day is unpleasant enough, but when i start allowing a bad day to influence the way i feel about myself, it turns into a much more serious matter. Unfortunately, some days are so rotten that it's hard not to let them impact to my self-worth. If i make a terrible mistake or have a massive error in judgment, it can be nearly impossible not to start thinking of myrself as a bad person. But i can't let a bad day (or week or month...) get in the way of loving who i am are. Preventing a bad day from spiraling out of control in my mind can be difficult. When things are bad, everything starts to seem bad. But here are five ways i can stop a bad day from impacting the love i have for myself.
I will remember my good qualities. When i battling a bad day, it can be hard to remember all the things i really good at and all of the wonderful qualities i possess. When things are going bad, i wil take a time out from whatever im doing and list out the things i good at. Remind myself of all the ways i completely and utterly awesome.
I will talk it out with someone i trust.An outside perspective is always helpful on a bad day. When i talk with someone i trust (and preferably someone who knows just how awesome i are), i'll see the day in a new light. Just talking about what's troubling i can help i feel better -- and i never know what kinds of insights someone else might have.
I will keep it in perspective.Easier said than done when i in the midst of a terrible day, but it's important to keep the bad day in perspective. One bad day (or even a lot of bad days!) doesn't mean everything is bad -- or will continue to be bad. Things will get better and it's important not to lose sight of that very essential truth.I will make a (or review your) gratitude list.If i have a gratitude list, pull it out on a bad day and review all of the things i have to be grateful for. If i don't have a list, make one. Write down everything i thankful for. Once i do this, i'll start to realize that, even though some things are bad, there are a lot of things to be grateful for.
I will ask others to help me out. Sometimes we're so overwhelmed by what's going wrong that we forget we can ask for help. When you're having a tough time, ask for help. Doing so doesn't mean i have less strong or capable. It means i smart. I smart enough to know i can't do it all. Just asking someone else to lend a hand can be a great act of self-love.
This way can make my bad days are unavoidable. They happen to us all, and they're bound to make us feel not-so-great. It's okay to get down when you have a bad day, but it's not okay to let that one day impact how you feel about yourself. No matter how bad the day gets, keep your head up -- and keep these five tips in mind...Keep smile and always postive..:-)
