Inner peace and mental strength have the relationship of cause and consequence and that work both ways. Inner peace will is a major cause of mental strength and mental strength will lead to inner peace. If you’re mentally strong then only you can lead a life of happiness. Only after making peace with yourself, you can maintain a peace with everyone else. Instead of trying to change others, it’s better to work upon your own self. “Easier said than done”, but if you truly want to transform your life for something better, here is what you need to do for your inner peace:
Adieu to toxic relationships
The one thing to give up for inner peace is toxic relationships. The people around you influence your behavior, your feeling on a greater extent. Engaging with anyone that with negative mentality or anything that hampers your peace of mind is like taking the toll on your self-being. Mentally strong people are quite determinant of not whining or putting efforts in changing the toxic people. Rather they believe in distancing themselves or creating healthy boundaries. This is not selfish; it is more love for self.
Don’t take the blame for everything
Be it at personal space or at the workspace, taking 100% blame every single time is not going to benefit you. And the world will never treat you as someone who has taken their blames but a “LOSER”. Also taking blames affect the way you see yourself too. You can’t successfully row the boat every damn time or prevent bad things from their occurrence. Accepting one’s fault is a great thing and you should be accountable for that as well. But taking the blame for things that are beyond your control is not wise. You don’t have to be so harsh on yourself.
The peace of mind is just beyond the line of the comfort zone
We all love to stay in our comfort zones because that thing doesn’t scare us or challenges us. But it’s the comfort that hampers your growth. This comfort will only backfire at the very end. For your mental peace and growth, it is essential to face your fears and to explore the possibilities of the unknown and to test your limits. Walking out this comfort zone will only reward you with a better life.
Stop “victimizing” yourself:
As we mentioned earlier that being too harsh on own self is bad, so is to blame everyone else and victimizing oneself. A victim mentality which is that every other person is there to get you from being the best or blaming others for your problems and misery will never lead you anywhere. The first thing for mental peace is to have a peace with your choices even in the tragic circumstances. Only when you have mental peace, you can firmly stand up for your things and can focus on mending things for better rather than deteriorating them.
“You only have you”, everything and everyone else is just a passing phase. So before anyone else, make peace with yourself.
