You are not your thoughts!
We don't need to identify with our thoughts.
We all have thoughts of anger, happiness, fear, joy, and doubt.
When we're experiencing these thoughts, they seem solid, heavy, and permanent, so we start to believe in the thoughts and take them at face value as our reality, never questioning or challenging them.
When thoughts of impostor syndrome take over, they cause us to doubt ourselves and our abilities, so we end up playing small.
When thoughts of anger take over us, they cause us to do things in the heat of the moment, which we later regret.
But thoughts are not permanent; they are fleeting.
We don't need to be beholden to them.
We don't need to be engulfed by them.
We don't need to be identified by them.
We don’t need to play along with them.
Thoughts arise and then disappear; this is the ephemeral nature and reality of thoughts once we look at them closely.
Once we understand the fleeting nature of thoughts, we can start to create some distance from them and just observe them as they come and go without falling into the stories they create.
Observe and let go of the thoughts as they arise because another one will be arriving soon to take its place.
Stay strong like a mountain as the thoughts come and go.
You got this! ✊🏽
