Maat E's Mental Health Message:
If you are thinking negatively about someone else you might as well be
thinking negatively about yourself. Our thoughts about the world around us are a reflection of who we are inside our own heads. Relationships full of hateful thoughts reflect an aspect of our internal thinking process usually coupled with emotional pain. Separate the thoughts from the emotions. For example, feel hurt, think compassion; feel anger, think compassion. The compassion is the first step and involves understanding that life is ever challenging and sometimes it gets hard. If you are hurting and don't feel good right now you need compassion and understanding. Start by giving it to yourself. When you find that love and gentleness for yourself it becomes more difficult to direct it at someone else.
Much peace and more love today.
Dr. Maat E.
