How bad habits hurt us

Researchers have found envying your friends' perfect life feed on social media leads to depression.

"Why do they have all the luck?" may make us feel better in the moment but hurts our mental strength.

3 kinds of destructive beliefs that hurts mental strength

  1. Unhealthy beliefs about ourselves. Sad is ok but self-pity is not. Magnifying the misfortune keeps us stuck, focused on the problem instead of the solution.
  2. Unhealthy beliefs about others. Giving away the control of our life to others by prioritizing the "I have to" tasks. You are in control of your response and your choices.
  3. Unhealthy beliefs about the world. It's a bad habit to believe enough hard work makes us deserve success - it's not 'how much', but 'how' that matters more here.
Life Changing: 3 Things To Avoid To Become Mentally Strong

To start off, here's a list of things that you can avoid to live more peacefully and content:

  1. Waste Time Feeling Sorry for Themselves: Take responsibility for your actions, and be in harmony with the results. Accept them, good orr bad!
  2. Give away your power: Mentally strong people avoid giving others the power to make them feel inferior or bad. 
  3. Shy away from change: Don't fear change, rather, disagree from being stagnant for long.
  4. Worry About Pleasing Others: A mentally strong person strives to be kind and fair and to please others where appropriate, but is unafraid to speak up.

  3. The New Beginning, where we take a ‘rebirth’.
