Are You An "I always mess things up" Person?

...then you need to shift your thinking

If you are the type of person who constantly thinks, "I always mess things up" - changing your thinking may help drastically.

Recognize and challenge negative thought patterns.


Because our thoughts often influence our emotions.

And by identifying and challenging negative thoughts, you can change how you feel.

Instead of accepting negative thoughts at face value, learn to question their validity.


Develop more realistic and balanced thoughts.

This is where you consider alternative, more balanced perspectives.

You have the power to change your emotional response by changing the way you think.

Instead of thinking "I always mess things up", you can change it to:

"I sometimes make mistakes, but I've also succeeded in many situations."

This shift in thinking can lead to improved emotional well-being and a more positive outlook on life.

Differentiate between acute and chronic stressors

For zebras on the African savannah, stress might involve a predator chasing them. In such situations, their bodies activate stress hormones, increase heart rate, and mobilize energy to respond quickly and effectively.

However, in the modern world, our stressors are often chronic and psychological, such as work pressures, financial concerns, or relationship issues. The physiological stress response that was designed for short bursts of intense activity becomes problematic when activated over extended periods.

The lesson here is to recognize the difference between acute and chronic stressors. While acute stress is a natural and necessary part of life, chronic stress can have detrimental effects on our physical and mental well-being.

You can develop coping mechanisms and lifestyle habits that help mitigate the impact of chronic stressors.

Techniques like mindfulness, relaxation exercises, and positive reframing can be valuable tools in addressing the modern, chronic stressors

● Do you think that in the future, people will look back at our social media posts as a kind of ancient civilization's cave paintings, trying to decipher the meaning of emojis and hashtags?
