I detach myself from negativity

I remove negative thoughts and ideas from my mind so that they have no power over me. I let go of unhelpful suggestions and harmful experiences. I focus on positive inspiration and reinforce my strengths and abilities. I intentionally take note of how optimism makes my life better.

I avoid dwelling on negativity that can hurt me

Instead of getting stuck in a negative thought process, I quickly analyze the feelings and the root causes of the negative emotion or thought. This allows me to make a fast and productive judgment call on how to handle the situation.

I have the emotional and mental freedom to manage my thoughts

I am strong enough mentally and spiritually grounded enough to decide for myself what I think and what I will dwell on. I choose to fight negativity and eliminate it from my life. I avoid creating bonds to negative things, experiences, or emotions.

My defenses against negativity are strong

I eliminate all the stress, anxiety, and worries that come with negativity. I throw away and forget harmful things. I get rid of the pain that can damage my soul.

I focus on my center, my spiritual values, and my support network. I turn to positive friends and loved ones for help during negative circumstances. I also have the option of professional help. I have multiple choices that assist me on this journey.

I distance myself from negative people because they hurt my mind and spirit. I know this is healthier than dwelling on the pain, and I prioritize my mental and spiritual health.

Today, I detach from the negative things in my life to focus on the positive. I appreciate the universe through an optimistic lens.
