When someone hurts you, they can end up occupying your thoughts for hours, days, months or even years. You can not stop thinking about their behavior, and you constantly remember how they looked and what they said.
This happens a lot with couples who end their relationship abruptly and results in a cycle of toxic thoughts.
Toxic thoughts are damaging, emotionally and physically and result in an unhappy and unhealthy mind.
Toxic thoughts play a fundamental role in illnesses like autoimmune diseases, depression, cancer, and heart disease. 75% to 95% of the illnesses today are a direct result of our thought life. It is an epidemic of toxic emotions.
The average person has over 30,000 thoughts a day. Through an uncontrolled thought life, you create the conditions for illness; you make yourself sick. There are intelectual and medical reasons to forgive.
Thinking and consciously controlling your thought life is one of the best ways of detoxing your brain. It allows you to get rid of toxic thoughts and emotions that can consume and control your mind.
Change in your thinking is essential to detox the brain. Consciously controlling your thought life means learning to engage with every single thought that you have, and to analyze it before you decide either to accept or reject it.
