    Mentally strong people have healthy habits. They manage their emotions thoughts and behaviors in the ways that set them up for success in life check out these things that mentally strong people don't do so that you too can become more mentally strong.
    1. They don't waste time feeling sorry for themselves.
    Mentally strong people don't sit around feeling sorry about their circumstances or how others have treated them. Instead they take responsibility for their role in life and understand that life isn't always easy or Fair.
    2. They don't give away their power.
    They don't allow others to control them and they don't give someone else power over them. They don't say things like "my boss make me feel bad" because they understand that they are in control over their own emotions and they have a choice in how they respond.
    3. They don't shy away from change.
    Mentally strong people don't try to avoid change. Instead they welcome positive change in are willing to be flexible. They understand that change is inevitable and believe in their abilities to adapt.
    4. They don't waste energy on things they can't control.
    Did you hear a mentally strong person complaining over lost luggage or traffic jams?! But Instead these people focus on what they can control in their lives. They recognize that sometimes the only thing that they control is their attitude.
    5. They don't worry about pleasing everyone.
    Mentally strong people recognize that they don't need to please everyone all the time. They are not afraid to say no or speak up when necessary. They strive to be kind and fair but can handle other people being upset if they didn't make them happy.
    6. They don't fear taken calculated risk.
    They don't take reckless or a foolish risk but don't mind taking calculated risks. Mentally strong people spend time waiting their risk and benefits before making a big decision and they are fully informed of the potential downsides before they take action.
    7. They don't dwell on the past.
    Mentally strong people don't waste time and dwelling on the past and wishing things could be different. They aknowledge their past and can say what they've learned from it. However they don't constantly relieve bad experiences or fantasize about the Glory Days. Instead they live for the present and plan for the future.
    8. They don't make the same mistakes over and over.
    Mentally strong people accept responsibility for their behavior and learn from their past mistakes. As a result they don't keep repeating those mistakes over and over. Instead they move on and make better decisions in the future.
    9. They don't resent other people's success.
    Mentally strong people can't appreciate and celebrate people's success in life. They don't grow jealous or feel cheated when others surpass them. Instead they recognize that success comes with hard work and they are willing to work hard for their own chance at success.
    10. They don't give up after the first failure.
    Mentally strong people don't view failures as a reason to give up. Instead they use failure as an opportunity to grow and improve. They are willing to keep trying until they get it right.
    11. They don't fear alone time.
    Mentally strong people can tolerate being alone and they don't fear silence. They aren't afraid to be alone with their thoughts and they can use downtime to be productive. They enjoyed their own company and aren't depend on other for companionship and entertainment all the time but instead can be happy alone.
    12. They don't feel the world owns them anything.
    Mentally strong people don't feel entitled to things in life. They weren't born with a mentality that others will take care of them or that the word must give them something. Instead they look for opportunities based on their own merits.
    13. They don't expect immediate results.
    Whether they are working on improving their health or getting a new business off the ground mentally strong people don't expect immediate results. Instead they apply their skills and time to the best of their ability and understand that real change takes time.

      Me too, I was accepted to a good uni in London for my BA but it was too financially draining and I knew that my family would not be able to pay for it even though they kept telling me not to worry. But how can I not worry? I had to leave, I'm attending a local college in my hometown but I hope that the opportunity for me to go abroad to study will come true one day without it being a burden to my family.

      @Carmen Cofax I'm not surprised you're husband left you with that attitude. I'm sorry but you made the choice to marry your husband (ex), whereas this is Amy's family that she has known for a lifetime. I know it's hard and you said it would of been easier for you to heal if your ex died but don't you think that's a little insensitive? Amy's family did die and there's nothing she could about it, she didn't have choices. Don't be narrow minded and stop taking your anger out on others just because you failed as a wife.

    Thank you Amy! I deleted my FB account. I give more real time to my parents, my husband and never take days for granted. Although I am depressed I work through it with my therapist (lucky to have one). Being compassionate is what living is all about. I am still learning....Sorry you had to go through such trying times but your truth is such a inspiration!

    To become mentally strong we must maintain mental hygiene: get rid of bad mental habits like complaining, envy, destructive self attacks and adopt healthy mental habits like gratitude, compassion and positivity.
    I love when you shared that you needed to monster your mental power and to use all the knowledge about mental strength in order to heal: knowing how to overcome trauma and actually living it are two different things.

      @Montesa it’s been months since you’ve said you’re going to end it. Yet you’re here still commenting extremely triggering things. I’m glad you’re still here but these types of comments are dangerous. I’ve been through the worst kinds of depression for years, then one day I just said “fine I will try, I won’t give up even if it’s painful” and just like that, I allowed good & bad days to happen. I grew myself and starting becoming extremely happy again. Sometimes where depressed because we give into the bad thoughts. And we need to fight those thoughts to reprogram our mind. Look I’m back depressed again, but this time it’s circumstantial from a breakup. I tried to give up on life twice & honestly I was doing myself no favours. I kept saying “I’m going to quit” “what’s the point”. Well that’s the point, the fact I’m even saying “what’s the point” is the whole point. To never ever get to the point where you’re saying “what’s the point” and you FIGHT. It’s a painful fight & a hard road. But it’s also a gift because it means when you finally are in a good place, you’ll appreciate 100X more because you know what being in a bad place is.

    I was feeling so low for no reason before watching this then when I heard about how you lose your mom and husband , I couldnt stop myself from cryingg and now, i feel so much light and better. The tone of your voice is so soothening ma'am. I hope youre happy wherever you are now. 🤎
    I am emotionally so weak , cries over little things and overthink a lot but I do believe someday I will be emotionally and mentally strong enough to face my problems with a smile on my face🥺.
    If you are feeling low just watch something that will divert your mind and will bring a smile on your face.
    Its OKAY NOT to be OKAY.

    Thank you for sharing your story and helping us move on from our losses. It is so true that self-care for our mental health is as important as caring for our bodies. Although it does take years to develop healthier habits, it only takes 7 days of repetition for a good start to develop the habit you would like to have. I have proven this true when I chose not to be late for work anymore. Each day I clocked in early I would mark it on my calendar. If I came in late during the 7-days, I would start over and go back to Day-1. Eventually, I was clocking in early each day for the next 90 days. Which became 6 months, then a whole year. Start with small steps. One day at a time. Each day is a new beginning!

    Excellent lessons Amy, bless you for sharing! Even when I know these things, it great to be reminded. A revolutionary idea I came across yrs. ago is that there is NO EQUALITY unless people, places & things are EXACTLY the same & as we know, even identical twins aren't exactly the same. Also, 1 idea, can change our lives tremendously...

      So totally true I have learned so much about not just how and why I keep ending up in the same ruts or self sabotaging life choices .Even more important I have accepted that childhood trama has actual struggles at times of adulthood for some people like me .I learned how important it is for me to surround myself with positive uplifting encouraging people the best I could ,because I know I am not always a good self starter and am often to embarrassed to ask for help but need it so often at times of real importance .I took years to develop a trusting friendship of someone that I know believes in me regardless of my mistakes or poor choices at times who I can confide in and tell how lost I really am in certain things someone I know wants nothing from me but to see me make my own life changing progress and grow in my own self confidence and when I backtrack will check me and call me out lovingly with constructive criticism and guidance to make better choices and learn how to navigate away from my self sabotage .a friend who reminds me to process feelings and let them go to work on myself finding solutions not focusing on my problems or how and why or who .15 yrs my best friend and mentor has truly helped me be a better me and learn it's only up to me. understanding that I'm more than just broken I'm smarter than wanting to succeed but barely trying out of actual fear of success and during the times I worked hard and made actual progress up the mountain of self worth and I felt life seemed to keep kicking my feet from under me I learned to handle things differently .In that I have truly grown away from letting people walk all over me or constantly allow myself to be affected buy what others assumed or said or thought of me.Learning emotional intelligence from a welfare to work computer skills occupation class at a community college truly changed how I allowed myself to be or not be affected by the negative or positive around me ( it took my friend 5 yrs to convince me as a single parent to even apply for assistance and use the resources available to me. I was pridefully I felt I had arms legs and a job there was people that needed it more.i was surviving but no progress than I accepted I could use the help and actually better myself for my son and that was ok ). That small part of that office skills course gave me the most valuable tools I have ever had in my life. . These Ted X talks are so beyond rewarding and truly help me learn and grow and understand more about life and behavioral therapy .just the break down of the effects on chronic childhood PTSD into adulthood and understanding addictions alone are life saving to me doing my best in making sure my child doesnt go into life accepting this generational depression and addictions and settling for the struggle is acceptable. He has sent me in ups and downs good and bad choices but he has also seen me overcome and grow . I have always expressed how important it is to keep moving forward and embrace our path no matter how hard because it is overall struggles a beautiful path of abundant blessings in every lesson great or small. I challenge him to be greater than my mistakes learn from what u see me struggle with . Most importantly everyday since he was born I uplift him to be positive and kind above all with a loving heart that does all things %100 .I taught him to think for himself learn what he doesn't know apply himself and what he gathers in knowledge and experience so that he can be confident in growing to be a humble kind person hopefully not having to waist so much of his life never thinking he was good enough to even try to shoot for the stars . Like me .I was my own worst fear and enemy growing up. Thank you all that speak and share and teach on these platforms .you have helped me understand there is nothing wrong with me my life is what made me who I am a strong resilient woman that is understanding and has so much more to offer this world than the story of how I got here but even better the story of where I'm going and how I will break the cycle of being broken in my family . I share these videos with so many people i i know I hope it helps others like it has for me
      Thanks again

      @Carolina Vidal How are you now? Only you are responsible for your life and joy. In life there are 2 main problems--mind and the body. To feel better reduce overthinking. . Your breathing is closely related to the brain [mind] and gives good relief from stress-anxiety. To relax sit on a chair or lie down, neck straight, eyes closed and observe the sensations of your incoming--outgoing breath at the entrance of the nostrils for 5-10-15 minutes or more. If possible don't move too much. Don’t fight your thoughts. With daily practice the mind will relax. No deep breathing needed. Do the practice without any expectations when taking a walk, at work, in the kitchen, when reading, before sleep etc. Like me, make this a lifetime daily habit to have a better life. Avoid comparing with others, reduce negative social media and avoid constipation as it affects the mind instantly. Best wishes--Counsellor.

    It is really a wonderful speech..It was like you were reflecting my life. Yes, I agreed 100% with your points. Any one should not sit and think about what had happended in the past. We as a human can not undo anything past. It is woth think about the future and how we can build a positive life. In my experience, everyone would go through rough time at sometime of time. If it happens at the earliest, it would be good.

I’ll still work on my goals but step by step. I hope I’m going through the right path.

    Great speech. Self pity is one thing that has held me down more than anything else in my life. I just never realized how much. Spending so much time dwelling on the negatives or maybe the injustice of a situation instead of reacting in a way to find a solution. I am starting counseling next week. I was suppossed to start last week, but had to cancel being called into work. I'm going to give treatment a try, but getting better at fixing myself seems more valuable though. I would much rather be the person always helping others through hard times instead of always being the one going through them.

      @I Work 4 a Living
      I know it seems like "what's the point of figuring out the root?" That totally makes sense why you feel that way! Because yeah it is tough to remember and sometimes we don't wanna remember but I've learned that in order to figure out how to fix or change something, we've first gotta figure out where it came from and how it works. For instance, say you're making a apple pie and it comes out the oven tasting weird. In order to change it we've gotta figure out what we did to make it that way, like maybe we added salt instead of sugar. Now we know what we did and how to change it. So yes figuring out the root isn't always an easy process but I think it's essential to change :)

    • I Work 4 a Living

      Hi! Bad mental habits are tough to break but most definitely achievable! It just takes time and practice. First you gotta figure out the root, what events/links led up to the development of this bad habit? What behaviors are you doing that reinforce this bad habit? If you can break even one of the links in the chain, then you can break the problem behavior. As for always missing the past memories, I'm pretty sure that's what you're saying! I used to struggle with that too. I was pretty much living in the past. But it's realizing that change is the one constant in life, and we have to learn to grow with change and not against it. "Grow through what you go through." Use your problems as an opportunity to grow and learn from them instead of dwelling on them, I used to do that all the time! I know it can be hard when the past feels like a place of comfort and safety, but when we realize that this present moment and the future has a lot to offer too, we become overall happier! I don't know if I helped but hopefully I did! :)

      @KHUSHI GARG - Of course nobody knows how long it will take for a certain person to heal, if in fact they are able to recover.
      But that doesn't stop people from wanting to know ballpark averages, guidelines, as to what to expect.
      It's a normal thing to want as much information as possible regarding what you are going through. In fact, it's required, to at least make some tentative plans for the future ....

      Yeah, but healing and self-pity are two different things. The first one is taking a step back and mourning or being sad, or angry because we have every right to feel that way if someone or life circumstances hurt us very badly.
      But self-pity is blaming others, going through negatives thoughts over and over again, re-experiencing it our mind what we felt years ago again and again and NOT changing anything but being stuck in a circle of blame, frustration, sadness and stagnation where we do not move, know the difference.

      Those ppl who suppress you and seem to hate you lack the ability to be honest with themselves enough to realize that we are all responsible for our own actions and our own guilt and what we lack to achieve.. that’s why they are cruel to you. Ultimately every mean thing said or done is a unseen reflection of their own shortcomings. By not expressing a similar mentality and attitude as your family makes you much better then them.. see it, believe it, know it to be true as much as all the people here who liked and replied to your comment. 😃😉💪🏼👍🏻✌🏼

    The years caring for my terminally ill mother taught me a lot about what's really important in life and that my "soul tank" (the inner essence of myself where my emotions, mental strength, inner strength and so on exist) isn't bottomless. It needs refilled, topping up, just like the fuel tank in a car and ignoring the need to do so quickly leads to mental breakdown, feeling empty and can even effect physical health. Luckily I realized this about half-way through her care and was able to reverse some of the bad habits, so when she passed last year and my body finally gave out a few months later ( doc diagnosed me with "stress overload") it wasn't nearly as bad as it could have been had I not made those changes in my mind and life a couple of years before.

I realized that it’s unhealthy how I’ haven’t talked to my boyfriend about how toxic our relationship has gotten lately, and it’s been so hard on me. So I paused the video and sent him a text and we finally talked about it, after almost a month of me overthinking this everyday. We broke up. And while that’s sad, it’s also liberating. Because now I can finally move on. Thank you so much for this video and for your words, they really helped me 🙏🙏 also sending big hugs to anyone that’s going through a rough time right now

    Great talk with an alarmingly needed message especially for kids in school dealing with hardships and those transitioning into adulthood. it's a message for everyone but if more kids see this. perhaps they'll better understand or at least keep this in the back of their mind that your thought process is something that must be nurtured and tended to every day just as easily and repetitive as you change your shirt each day. learning these tools help to strengthen the mind and emotions towards hardships in life.

      @Peter Parker you're completely wrong. God will reveal himself to you.

      She’s a strong woman. I agree with everything she says especially the part that we are a separate person from other - I struggle in this area of thinking. However when she says life isn’t fair, I think this is not a true belief. The universe is made to bring justice for everyone. Time sometimes just separates us from seeing justice. All our tears are collected by God (Psalms 56:8) and in the future He will heal all our hurt and unfair treatment we’ve experienced and He will make the scale even for each of us. I think life looks unfair from our standpoint, but in the end you will see justice (Revelation 21:4).

    One bad habit I'm trying to overcome, is reacting in the heat of the moment when emotions are high. It's so hard to make myself be quiet until I've calmed down enough to hold a courteous conversation. It goes back to not allowing people to control you.

    thank you for sharing with us your story, a heavy package to deal with. Thank you for your motivation that it is ok to be sad, is ok to have these feelings. To deal with it. To stay positive to have a life you want. To a be a sunshine to blow the rainy clouds away to see life in a better perspective. Not every day we feel strong, that is okay. But is not okay to feeling that way. For some it take time, to banish it. But it will pass.
