Freeing Yourself from Harmful Habits

Everyone has habits. Some are healthy, like showing up to things on time, while others can be not so beneficial, like procrastination. Some habits hinder our mental health and make life a lot harder than it needs to be, while others might be somewhat unconscious, like criticizing or second-guessing yourself. 

Breaking habits can be hard sometimes, but if it improves your mental health, it's worth the temporary discomfort that might come when you start to break the habit. And if you're not sure which bad habit you have, speaking with a Psychic can help you identify it. Here are some common bad habits that you can ditch this summer: 

People Pleasing 

Saying yes when you want to say no, can be a real bummer. Think about all of the times someone kindly asked you to do something, and you kindly said yes, even though you didn't have the time or resources or just didn't want to. The commitments you make require time and energy and should be things you want to put your positive energy into. Saying no is a boundary that you can place in your life and does not make you selfish. It empowers you! And it's beneficial to the other person – would you want to rely on someone who didn't want to help you in the first place? Probably not.   


Saying sorry for every little thing can be exhausting and irritating. Overusing the word can make you feel like you are constantly doing something wrong. Sometimes there is no need to say sorry, but we seem to do it anyway. We might over-apologize because we have low self-esteem or because we have high standards. When we feel inadequate or like a failure, we apologize for everything we think we have done wrong. Over-apologizing can be an unconscious bad habit, something you have been doing for so long that you now do it inadvertently. 

Shonda Rhimes says – NO is a full sentence, and the Bible says to let your yeas be yeas and nays be nay, or whatsoever is more than these comes of evil. No need to apologize. State the truth and keep it pushing. 

Toxic Relationships 

I want you to repeat the following sentence aloud: you don't ever have to feel guilty about removing toxic people from your life. It can be tough to let go of a relationship. However, if it no longer serves a positive purpose in your life, that may be a sign that you need to move away from that relationship. Don't blame yourself - it's not your fault! Decide what steps you need to take and move toward that decision. A Psychic can help you identify those steps.  

Negative Self-Talk  

Speaking to yourself negatively plays a role in your mood and overall wellbeing. Maybe you criticize your body in the mirror or tell yourself things you would never tell anyone else. Changing your inner tone of voice means paying attention to what you say to yourself. What do you think would happen if you were gentler and more empathetic? Maybe you would validate your feelings instead of analyzing them. Regardless of the situation, you allow your true self to shine outwards when you treat yourself with respect. 

Past Regrets 

It's easy to make a habit of thinking about the past and wishing upon the things you cannot change. You might regret a missed opportunity, a relationship, the way you spent your time, etc. Regret means that you are worried about your past decisions and wish you would have made different choices. Although we might regret our choices, the past cannot be changed. Regrets are a part of life, and we all have them! However, we can learn to embrace our experiences, good or bad, and learn to make peace with our past. 

Final Thoughts 

Change can be scary, but knowing that it's for the best makes it a little bit easier. Take some time to learn a bit more about yourself and what makes you happy. Develop habits that align with your values, personality, and goals. Don't overwhelm yourself. Choose one habit at a time and slowly start making changes. And let us know in the comments below what habit you really want to break. 

And if this long list of things tires you out, REST. Rome wasn't built in a day. Take your time and love yourself along the way. If you need support in breaking bad habits, contact me or any one of our supportive Psychics here at PathForward.
