First impressions start with the right attitude. Attitude is a beauty secret few know about and it beats any purchase you can ever make towards your beauty regime. It can transform you in ways you may not have imagined. The road to true beauty begins with an attitude adjustment and a change in perspective.
What is attitude? A strong person, even in moments of weakness can feel good about themselves even during hard times; circumstances change constantly. Remarks made by others can last a lifetime and it can only penetrate if you believe it for yourself. Visualize realistic and attainable changes. Create and visualize what you want, study up on it, even if it seems impossible to achieve.
Don’t make unfair comparisons of yourself to others or to an airbrushed image in a magazine or celebrity life. Learn to accept yourself and capitalize on your uniqueness. There is no one like you and there will never be another you.
Take a look in the mirror, make the necessary adjustments without projecting your issues onto someone else, it is a dysfunctional way to deal with life’s issues and it leads to nowhere. When we suffer with self esteem issues, we tend to avoid the “mirror”—the process of healing starts when you make a decision to deal with “you” and “your” issues.
The Clapping Hater
While they smirk in your face, yes, they want to take your place, but they certainly don’t know what it took for you to get there or how much further you have to go. They’ll attack at will, sometimes at random to throw you off, have a hard time minding their own business, yet that’s their job—to hate!
The thoughts belong solely to them, projecting their misery and personal issues onto you, while looking through the lens of Competitive Jealousy. When insecurity levels increase, they feel the need to shoot down whatever “target” they become fixated upon, then on to the next.
This emotionally unhealthy individual cannot hold their own position and will eventually self destruct/implode while causing collateral damage. Refuse to entertain this sick, unstable victim mentality; emotional health is necessary.
The Antagonism Of Jealousy
It’s an attitude about what you want and anger towards what is sought. When someone else prospers, it creates an opportunity to view it as yourself being one step closer to your goals or miss the opportunity and stay where you are until you get it. We tend to hate what we want because it’s in someone else’s hands, not because we hate the thing itself.
A belief in worth, dignity, and capacity for creative self direction.
Art Therapy is based on the premise of thoughts, feelings, and insights, not necessarily expressed verbally b/c of the abstract consciousness of the mind that lacks vocabulary to describe the focus and understanding of encounters the mind processes.
Know what you want and focus:
1. Verbal type meditation involving words through speech vs images
2. Inner directed rather than determined by external stimuli
3.Unstructured meditator, not a preconceived notion of which direction the meditation will take (ed2go)
Culture defines who we are and what we believe. We have different linguistic and cultural backgrounds learned from birth via language and socialization.
Culture enhances understanding of complex issues, and dynamics of conflicting belief systems that create tension:
Be aware of personal cultural biases as the first step in cultural competence.
