Our inner 'demons'

Our inner 'demons'

Our inner Demons, or inner voices, make us do irrational, stupid and selfish things, based out of fear.

You can befriend your demons, by facing them and objectively understanding the insecurity.

You will get insights about your demon and will begin to realize your various traits and the side effects it produces.

Some of our common 'demons' are:

  • Procrastination
  • Laziness
  • Self-loathing
  • Comparing yourself with your peers, leading to envy
  • Loser mentality.

If you choose to value something in your life, you are also choosing the other side of the coin, which is the failure of that value, automatically.

No one can just choose to take the good while not taking the bad.

Our inner demons lead us to negatively judge ourselves, further leading to avoiding that judgment, and eventually starting the internal self-destruction, if the negative downward spiral is left unchecked.

Having demons or internal insecurities is not something exclusive, but is, in fact, a common reality among human beings. 

Everyone faces their demons, and it helps us to understand and learn about ourselves.

Fighting your inner battles

Like most other things in our life, getting healthy is more about fighting our inner battles - desiring the bad food, wanting to drink and smoke, or forgoing the planned workout.
