80% of thoughts are negative, and 95% are repetitive thoughts. ⁣

Which means, we’re thinking the same negative thoughts, over and over again. ⁣

They take up space, way too much space. ⁣

And so we fall victim to them, over and over again. ⁣

This is why it’s important to break cycles. To disrupt thoughts. ⁣
To deconstruct the very foundations of narratives that run through us day in and day out.⁣

Reading, learning, evolving. ⁣

To rewrite. ⁣
To rethink. ⁣
To rework. ⁣

There’s a lot about how much control we have scientifically around our thoughts. So I can’t speak to it all. But I will say this… ⁣

I have negative thoughts. They used to be almost entirely around my body, food, exercise, worth. I can tell you that they’ve changed. That they aren’t so negative anymore, and not all that positive either. They’ve just stopped being the majority of my thoughts or the disrupters of my days. ⁣

What we feed ourselves matters. ⁣
Body and mind. ⁣

Maybe I have 80% negative thoughts. Maybe more. Maybe less. ⁣
But somehow the 20% are stronger. ⁣
Strong enough to fight.⁣
Strong enough to minimize the rest. ⁣

Strong enough to remind me I can exist, with worth, and a body that is my own, 100% of the time. ⁣
