Don’t believe everything you think

Aug 26, 2022

If you’re a human being, you have about 60,000 thoughts per day. And while some of those thoughts are true, others are complete nonsense. Every day, your brain offers you thoughts, and they tend to fall into one or more of the following categories:

  • Not true, and never were true.
  • Used to be true, but not any longer.
  • Never originally your own – someone else offered them to you.
  • Served you well decades ago (perhaps in childhood or early adulthood) but now no longer a fit, outdated or otherwise no longer ideal for you.
  • Alternatively, some thoughts are true, and some thoughts are also useful.

True and useful thoughts pave the road to healing: to creating a life that honors your late spouse, all while reconstructing your own identity.

To living a life on purpose.

Time does not heal. Intentionality does. Being intentional about your thoughts is paramount.

Notice what your brain is offering you. Don’t believe everything you think. Instead, decide if it’s true and useful. Does it serve you well in this journey of life after loss? If not, you get to direct your brain to think other true thoughts, on purpose.
