Mindful mindset; Strive or Escape


• The established set of attitudes held by someone.

• A settled way of thinking or feeling about someone or something, typically one that is reflected in a person’s behavior.

• A position of the body proper to or implying an action or mental state.

Damaged Good Syndrome; Every one of us have been hurt and have accused our actions on dealing with prior situations that cause one to be stuck in a harmful/damaged mindset.


• Make forceful or violent efforts to get free of restraint or constriction.

• A forceful or violent effort to get free of restraint or resist attack.

Hurt people tend to hurt other people, a lot of us are currently or have experienced anger due to our past. Either a loved one or a person of interest has disappointed or hurt us; either verbal or physical and until the wounds of our sorrows are healed, only then can one truly begin to heal and is able to grow. Bitterness, anger and violence are emotional seeds that are plated through life’s difficult times, hard situations and experiences. For instance, we are not born with worries or self-doubt. Insecurity, poverty and anger are learned through generational damage without healing or correction. Once learned we express those things through our language and behaviors. No one owns their past, yet we are quick to revisit past hurt or disappointment. We can no longer blame our short comings or wrong doings on things that will not and cannot change; We own our emotions and actions, the only thing we can change is ourselves. When I see in the news children attempting suicide, my heart feels heavy. I wonder what the child was exposed to, who planted the seeds of worthlessness? We are stronger than we think, we can influence others with words and actions; positively and negatively. Positive thoughts produce positive actions and vice versa for negativity. The mind can either be our prison or our escape. If your mind is a prison, it holds you hostage with the things that hurt you the most. Remembering all the foul things ever done or said now applied to everything one does. Someone tell you that they hate your hair, more than likely the first thing we would attempt to do is change your hair in attempt to change their mind. Acting to change another opinion BUT won’t change our actions to produce better circumstances. We must learn to love and appreciate ourselves and constantly invest and improve. Grow and teach our own to break any cycle of depression, violence, self-doubt and or any insecurity. Life isn’t always what it seems. Life may appear to be a constant struggle or hassle but keep in mind everything worth having is never easily obtained. Think about it; to identify with what happiness truly is, we must experience the opposite. The key is making the choice to win the race by creating our own lane.

No success nor struggle are identical, but each is guaranteed to fulfill a purpose; trials are meant to be testimonies, not permanent burdens nor endings. Free your mind and the rest will follow, I believe that’s in a song but its so true. Allow yourself to live and remember nothing can stop you from being happy or successful EXCEPT YOUR TRAIB OF THOUGHT- what’s your mindset

Ps never too late to succeed!
