Escaping the “I Give Up” Mindset

as you awaken, you open your eyes… seeing the morning sun filtering through the window.  you instantly feel it. the heaviness… the fog… that black cloud. that feeling of intense disappointment that makes you want to stay in the comfort of your bed ….maybe your substitute in dealing with the day.

perhaps your sadness is weighing you down. or, maybe your anxiousness is simply an excessive amount of  ‘all you don’t need to deal with’  throughout your day… shaking your already fragile nerves.

leading to an : “I give up” mentality.

by saying this to yourself, you are feeding negativity to your mind.

many people, often times seem to relate to this “I give up” mind-set.

it helps to  understand that this thinking has many factors, and never just one thing.

Cynthia Catchings, LCSW-S, believes that these ideas sometimes stem from melancholy.

“Melancholy is without doubt one of the principal causes,” she says. “It usually creates a scarcity of motivation and deep disappointment that stops the particular person from seeing past that.”
