Bad habits that damage our emotional health

When life beats us down, we can do two things about it: accept our situation or try to change it.

A lot of the time, we blame ourselves for what goes wrong without realising the damaging affects the self-blame has on our health.

Here are more bad habits that damage our emotional health:

Self-criticism
We are the worse critics for ourselves and often demoralise ourselves when we fail. Remember, failure is a sign that you’re trying and it’s also a great teacher.

Unnecessary pride
Even when we know we should apologise, our pride doesn’t let us. If you want to gain the forgiveness of others, then admit your mistakes and take responsibility for what you did.

Internal-dialogue
This is probably the most damaging of the three. We often tend to use negative internal dialogue when we talk about ourselves. This monologue decrease self-esteem and self-worth.

Remember, positive minds live positive lives.
