Bad Mental Habits
Bad mental habits are the thoughts we let roll around in our minds over and over. There is pain with the thoughts, and a touch of "it hurts so good". Even though, you know you will feel better the moment you stop thinking this way, there is often some part of us that just want to indulge. We often think of these episodes of "round and round" as a private indulgence with no consequence, but the consequences are profound. They affect every area of your life. Do you think if you did the same thing to your child that you do to yourself that there would be no consequence? Of course not. You can try to figure out why you do this. It is typically a "long and winding road, that leads to your door, and will never disappear...". Mostly we do this because we are human. Or we can just decide to break a bad habit by stopping every time you catch yourself in it. "When you talk about yourself, you were wrong. Change the voices in your head. Make them like you instead."
