“If this sort of romantic love were cocaine, then as a culture we’d all be like Tony Montana in Scarface: burying our faces in a fucking mountain of it, screaming, ‘Say hello to my lee-tle friend!’
The problem is that we’re finding out romantic love is kind of like cocaine. Like, frighteningly similar to cocaine. Like, stimulates the exact same parts of your brain as cocaine. Like, gets you high and makes you feel good for a while but also creates as many problems as it solves, as does cocaine.”- Mark Manson
How do you know you’re actually alive?
“I think, therefore I am.”- René Descartes
Our thoughts are so powerful, that the very proof of our existence depends on them. So why do we still doubt it’s potency in manifesting a better life for ourselves?
People can watch the same event, yet see it differently. The way we perceive the world is shaped by our thoughts. Some see the glass as half full, some see it as half empty. However you see it is how it will be.
*Seeing the brighter side of a situation.
These are some techniques that can break negative thought patterns. But you have to believe in it, believe in yourself. Of course bad things happen, but if you’re introspective you can find a lesson learned. We know fire is dangerous, because somebody got burnt. They stopped putting cocaine in Coca-Cola, because, well for obvious reasons. It’s so easy to see the worst, so why not challenge yourself to see the best.
