11 Ways To Change Your Words To Change Your Mindset
Adriana Gil

I, and I believe, most people tend to say things that can give off negative vibes or create negative thoughts in their head. Whether or not they accept it or notice it, negative thoughts can have an actual effect on the way things turn out. That's why I made this list of 11 ways to change your words so you can change your mindset.

Change...

1. "I can't do this" to "How can I find a way to accomplish this?"

Instead of beating yourself up on not being able to do something, you can find a way to do it while also helping yourself grow.

2. "I am dumb" to "I can learn."

You should never put yourself down, but make yourself stronger.

3. "I made a mistake" to "I can learn from my mistakes."

4. "I HAVE to be perfect" to "I don't need to fit anyone's standards by my own."

There is no such thing as perfect. The only person you need to be good for is yourself.

5. "Someone will always be better than me" to "How can I become the best me?"

6. "They won't like me if I do this" to "Will I like me if I do this?"

Life should not be about what others may think of you, but what you think of yourself because that will affect everything else you do in your life.

7. "This is too hard" to "If I put my mind to it, I can do it."

8. "Why did I think I could do this? to "If I thought I could, I can."

If you put your mind to something, you can achieve it.

9. "I give up" to "I can find a way around this."

10. "My day is ruined" to "Is my day actually ruined or did that small thing get to me too much?"

It is so easy to let one thing ruin your whole day; but you are in control of your day. Choose to not let it get to you for the rest of the day and try to look past whatever it was.

11. "I am not enough" to "I am enough for me."

Work to be enough for yourself because you're the one living with yourself forever.

Everyone's been here. And, truthfully, it sucks. But in order to move on and get past something you need to allow yourself to feel it for what it is--all of the heartbreak and pain--and then you can start to take steps move on.

The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

As we enter the new year, you might be looking for a great show to kick-off 2021. Look no further, I have the perfect recommendation. "The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.

Online classes and virtual reality in general have been the staple of 2020. One day in March, everything shut down and we all had to learn how to work, teach, study, do therapy, and take classes remotely without much preparation. So, it's been a roller-coaster experience, and definitely not what we expected.

11 TV Characters Who Are Irritating BEYOND Belief

Maybe they never really did anything seriously wrong, but oh my god they are annoying af.

17637

Have you ever been watching your favorite show, all comfortable and relaxed, and then that one character that you just can't stand pops up on the screen and ruins your mood? I know I certainly have. These characters aren't necessarily evil or horrible people, but they do have personalities that make them incredibly irritating. They're the kind of characters that make you want to yell at the writer, "what the hell were you thinking with this one?" Perhaps they have never hurt a fly, but it doesn't matter since their character just straight-up sucks.

By the way, some of my arguments contain spoilers, so fair warning.
