Even More Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do

By Roz Jones

Mental health is one of the greatest gifts one can get for themselves. Your mind controls just about everything that happens in your life from your beliefs about yourself to how you handle what happens around you. The worst enemy you can ever have is not the person who hates you with passion. It is a weak mind. Opportunities can come your way and enemies can do all in their power to disrupt your life but how all that turns out depends on your mental strength. In other terms, your mind has the final say in almost everything your brain processes. However, this does not mean that you do not experience emotions. Rather, you are aware of how certain things affect you and devise ways to survive them, block them, or even use them to your own advantage.

Check out part 1 here and part 2 here!

Below are even more things mentally strong people don’t do:

They do not always see themselves as victims – they understand that they are prone to err, or that some people are victims too, just like them. Everyone is fighting a battle of some sort which then affects their behavior too. Sounds like being naïve right? Well, it is not. Even where you meet unreasonable people it will not harm you to understand that the world does have such people and chose peace. Understand where the other person is coming from or that what seems harmless to you may be harmful to them based on their experiences.


They don’t fear facing challenges – they understand that it is better to try and fail than to not try at all. Trying can bring unexpected victory or help you learn but, if you do not try you will always wonder how things would have turned out if you had tried. On top of that, the fear of trying to face that challenge or something similar will remain or worsen.


They don’t feel the world owes them
– they understand that everyone has their own race to run and their own problems. As a result, people may not always be there to help when they are in need and that’s ok! We all have a right to choose what we do, how we do it, and when to do it for as long as we do not intentionally hurt others.

It’s here, I am so excited to share a new caregiver app called Circleof….This app will allow you to surround yourself with resources and experts from your community including ME!!!!

Below are some more things mentally strong people don’t do. Check out part 1 here!

They don’t compete – their sense of purpose helps them understand that their journey is unique and is not changed by other people’s wins. After all, everything works out fine for everyone at the right time. Therefore, they are happy to celebrate other people’s wins, help where necessary, and keep moving forward. We are not racing against each other. The universe expects each individual to do what they have to do when they are needed to do it to make everything complete.

They don’t hold on to the past – they only take lessons and good memories from the past and let what does not add value to their lives go. They do not hold grudges or hold on to what could have been. Consequently, they heal easier. They understand that the past cannot be changed and, if they hold on to some events, they are most likely to pull them back and create unfavorable events in the present as well. In the end, you remain with a chain of bad events hanging on your back. Burdens!

They don’t seek validation – mentally strong people understand their value and that not everyone will understand their journey or actions. Therefore, they do not seek validation from others. They know where they are going and what it takes. Perhaps it will only make sense to some people as time goes by.

Things Mentally Strong People Don’t Do

Below are some things mentally strong people don’t do

They are not controlled by other people – they know their purpose and that living it does not depend on anyone else’s power but their will and goals. As much as they understand the importance of creating and maintaining good relationships with other people, they also understand that no one can or should play the role of a god in their lives. The fact that they know their purpose and have clear goals makes them immune to peer pressure. They may err and may need advice, but oftentimes, they think through everything they want to do and they have the final say in decisions made concerning their lives. Some people may think they are stubborn, but mentally strong people have their mindset on reaching goals. They prefer to stand out rather than fit in.

They are not controlled by circumstances – mentally strong people do not change their lives based on their situations. They remain focused on their goals and handle situations to work for them or, they give way to situations and overtake them. The point is, whatever happens, a mentally strong person does not change who he or she is. 

They do not give up easily – determination defines them. They give their best in everything they do. Where they fail, they take lessons and try again until it works. Of course, this requires them to be realistic and calculative enough to know whether their plan is still as good as they perceived in the beginning. Plans fail for different reasons including that circumstances changed after strategies were formulated or that there were some loopholes.

Common Self-Love Obstacles People Face pt 2

By Roz Jones

When you are trying to practice self-love, there will be a few obstacles along the way, which can derail your progress if you aren’t prepared. Being aware of common obstacles can allow you to put preventative measures in place. So, let’s look at some more of the most common obstacles caregivers and others may face when trying to practice more self-love.

Needing to be perfect

Perfectionism is a major obstacle to self-love. While a little perfectionism can be a good thing, especially in business, it can also lead to disappointment, frustration, and unhappiness. 

When you feel like everything must be perfect, you will be devastated when you fall short. Try and let go of your need for perfection. Understand where your need for perfection comes from. Try to identify triggers so you can set up some preventative measures. Remember, nobody is perfect, not even you!

Not understanding how to love yourself

The biggest barrier to self-love is not understanding how to love yourself. Many people don’t fully understand what self-love means. They mistakenly think it is about doing things you want to do, rather than what you need.

Self-love isn’t just about treating yourself; it is about making sure you are truly fulfilling your needs. For example, if you want to lose weight, indulging in junk food isn’t going to help, even though it might be bringing temporary joy. Instead, a healthier diet and exercise routine is considered a form of self-love, as it helps you to become healthier and fulfils the body’s needs.

These are just some of the common obstacles to self-love we should all be aware of. Awareness grants you the ability to overcome them. Finding people you trust and who build you up is a big part of being able to practice self-love. However, it’s important to be your own personal cheerleader too. Don’t forget that to love and care for our loved ones, we must first love and care for ourselves!

When Anxiety Strikes

By Roz Jones

Panic attacks can be the bane of your existence, and can make caring for a loved one or even living your daily life extremely daunting. Never knowing when – or why – an attack can hit makes life unpredictable. Searching for a way to control your anxiety is a natural step to take. 

Most anxiety attacks come on suddenly – however, there are usually warning signs. It may only be a few seconds’ warning, but if we try to identify the signs, we may be able to lessen our symptoms. Some people experience chest tightening, lightheadedness, or shaking – all are the immediate signs of a rush of adrenaline. Adrenaline is one of the main identifiable reasons for an anxiety attack.  

As soon as you feel an attack beginning to develop, stop what you are doing. If you’re driving, pull over. If you’re standing or walking, sit down. As the attack begins to flower, take slow, steady breaths. Breathe in for five seconds, and out for five seconds. One of the main things people do when they are experiencing an anxiety attack is to breathe in short, sharp gasps; by slowing and focusing on your breathing, you are distracting your mind and resetting the scales. 

Keep breathing in this fashion. If necessary, close your eyes and tilt your head back so you have a clear throat passage for air to move through. You may also find some form of self-comforting useful; try rubbing the side of your wrist with a fingertip. Remain calm, focus on your breathing and rest until the feeling has passed.
