In this day and age, we tend to engage in lots of toxic behaviors. These toxic behaviors are things that do far more damage to our own well-being than we tend to realize.
Sure, we all have our own faults but when it comes to our actions we should be working to promote positivity in this world rather than bringing one another down. Below I am going to go over some of the things that we do that seriously affect our souls and in many cases the souls of others. Our spiritual selves are much more fragile than we are aware of and in breaking them down and partaking in these things over time we are going to literally shatter our own energetic beings.
If you want to nurture your soul you need to make sure that you’re putting forth your best efforts in this world. It is never too late to become the person you have always been meant to be. You are capable of so much more than you know.
11 Things That We Do To Kill Wreck Our Souls Without Realizing It:
1. Refusing to chase our dreams.
Your dreams are meant to be chased, ignoring them is only going to cause pain. You are not promised tomorrow, make the most of today. If you don’t get out in the world time will pass you by before you know it.
Gossiping about other people is only going to bring them down and produce negative karmic energies for you. You should treat others in ways you want to be treated. Would you want others gossiping about you?
3. Participating in drama.
Drama is not all it is cracked up to be. The deeper you get into it the more miserable it makes you. This kind of thing will feed off of your energy big time.
4. Pretending to be someone we are not.
You are not anyone else and you should not pretend to be. No one is perfect in this world, we all have our flaws. Being yourself is the most amazing thing you can do in this world.
5. Trying to please the people around us.
Other people are always going to have moments where they are not happy with us. You cannot live your life for other people. If you don’t live your life for yourself you’re only going to cause your own misery.
You should never lie to yourself or others. Your soul deserves the truth and so do the people you care for. Sugar coating things is a waste of time.
7. Refusing to love ourselves.
You should always work to love yourself. At the end of the day when everyone else has left your side you are all you truly have. Don’t take your soul for granted.
You are not going to be the same as anyone else. We are all unique in our own ways. The grass is not always as green on the other side as you might assume.
9. Bottling our emotions.
You need to address your emotions as they come. Bottling them will only make you feel as if you’re stuck and unable to move on. If you do not release them you will never overcome them.
10. Stressing about the past.
Your true self doesn’t live in the past so why do you? You cannot change it so moving on from it is the best option. The past will only continue to hurt you if you allow it to.
11. Turning ourselves into victims.
We do not have to be victims. We can turn our hard times and bad experiences around and overcome them. In feeding that victim mentality we are only holding ourselves back.
