In the meantime, however, you should spare yourself from any pain you might be inflicting on your being. It is more common than you think. Psychological distress is unsettling at best and devastating to your psyche and your physical well-being at worst. It is wise to learn to control the outside factors in life to help manage stress. Stress and anxiety can be lethal.
They weaken your health, facilitate the development of severe health problems, and remove years from your life.
What kind of psychological pain are you dealing with? Does it have to do with something outside your control? If so, let it go.
Have you been diagnosed with a disease such as Type 2 diabetes, which has changed your perspective on your way of living? You might feel intense regret for not taking care of yourself in the past, or for not listening to advice. You might be apprehensive about the present, and fearful of the future. The first few weeks can be a stressful time not only for the person diagnosed but also for their loved ones. Put a stop to any negative thoughts driving your bad ideas and revise your future expectations. It does not help to dwell on gloomy details: it is better to focus on what can be done because there is no shortage of options.
Are you overweight? It is an issue, sure. But it is a more significant problem if you torment yourself over it. Stop thinking you are destined to be overweight forever, because of "a or b." If you find yourself in this frame of mind, consider if it is a rational opinion. It probably isn't!
Regardless of your current health standing, you should not be hard on yourself. This does not mean you should not give yourself feedback but the key is to be constructive. Spare yourself punishment because it serves no purpose. No matter what has happened, give yourself a break. You are a human being, and like the rest of us, you make mistakes. But this also means you can learn from them.
Stop inflicting psychological pain on yourself.
Type 2 diabetes is not a condition you must just live with. By making easy changes to your daily routine, it is possible to protect your heart, kidneys, eyes, and limbs from the damage often caused by diabetes, and eliminate some of the complications you may already experience.
