How to defeat the villain inside you
Sometimes the whole world seems to be against us, we feel ourselves surrounded and chased by evil villains that mess with our head, with our minds ... they attack us through advertisements, rules and limitations, social media, telephones, they make us waste our money, our time, our life; they distract us, they make us lose our balance and disconnect from our inner world, from our mind. They start to control us.
But, are those villains really out there? Well… No, the villains are only inside your head, that's right, these villains live in your mind and control your behavior and your reactions to those external temptations, they want you to have unhealthy and destructive thoughts, they talk to you and control you, they weaken you, make you feel less, make you feel insecure, or make you feel that your life is meaningless and maybe, make you think that you do not deserve to be happy; comparing you with others, crushing your dreams, your desires, your real happiness. Have you heard them? Of course you hear them, they all speak to us, they are always there. These villains are our wild, out-of-control thoughts, that sometimes are just there and we can't make them disappear or silence them!
