Strong Mental Health By JackersEdit
The thought process of becoming a strong minded GMV editor (5 minute read)
There’s three areas to focus on in life to become successful; health, wealth and relationships.
I knew that strong mental health was one aspect I needed to work towards if I wanted to continue making GMVs for a living. Because the amount of times I’ve encountered people in the GMV community who said they were depressed in some way, had an effect in their ability to be productive.
If I wanted to stay relevant and keep making GMVs on YouTube, I needed to work on improving my mental and physical health.
It sucks that suffering from depression can be so severe that some people I knew turned to therapy to get help. But here’s the thing, I’m not much of a big believer in therapy, since I know they go over all the problems with you.
When all you do is talk about everything that is wrong in your life, it often assures you that those problems exist, making it harder for you to believe that there’s something greater than that.
This greater entity is your goals in life, you should be working towards them. If you had just taken action towards what you truly wanted, your goals, you would have made better progress in life.
Going to therapy and taking anti-depressants isn’t the solution, they are temporary fixes. They will temporarily help you in the moment, but soon enough, you will realise that the problems you’re facing still exists.
Counselling therapy only exists now, meaning this is a new problem that arose in today’s internet age. Hundreds of years ago, medieval times, therapists was never a profession.
If someone’s life was hell, they would deal with it by living their life and surviving as best they could. This could mean aligning themselves with high-survival-valued people. They were strong.
It often bothers me when I watch these YouTube videos of people talking about depression, defining what it is, then put their entire identity to depression, and they have the audacity to defend depression, as if it is their friend.
Why would you defend depression? I cannot defend depression, because it’s nothing but negative energy. When I feel like I'm surrounded with negativity, I'd immediately get out of it, because negativity prevents me from overcoming obstacles in my life.
If all you’re doing is researching about your problems on the internet, reading all these bad stories of people who suffered the same fate you’re currently in, and you go down this rabbit hole of your root problems, then you're making it harder for yourself to get out it.
You’re feeding your mind all these bullshits that are supressing you from taking action and actually solving them. You’re becoming weaker and more scared with lower energy.
Instead, what you should be doing is studying about confidence, learning how to get stronger, reading the journey to highly successful people and taking action to better your health, wealth and relationships.
When you do just that, you spend days, weeks and months of improving your communication skills, your ability to solve problems, being a good student to a strong leader, understanding how money works, getting in good shape and appreciating your journey to self-improvement, and remove all these old bullshit negative energies, you will transform your life forever.
The moment you change your mind from this low energy, sad and scared mind, to a strong, confident, assured mind, you will feel like a new person.
You can change jobs, change friends, change locations, change hair colour, but if you don’t change your mind, nothing else changes. You will just be the same old person that you were running away from, repeating the same mistakes and re-living the same problems.
Change your mind and you will change your world, because strong mental health is real wealth.
