When it comes to freedom with our emotions, we need to change our mindset and enforce a lot of self-discipline. For me personally, changing my mindset completely transformed my life and my emotions. Even today, I am absolutely still a work in progress, but I took my life from dreading the thought of waking up each morning and being in this constant dark tunnel just surviving day to day, to actually living. I have developed habits for myself to actually have control over my mindset to shape and create whatever life I want to live. I gained the courage to cut off dead relationships or negative people. I have the confidence to walk away from things that no longer really serve any purpose for me. I used to care more about other people and their thoughts about me than I cared about myself or my well being. Once I took a good look in the mirror at my life and was brutally honest with myself I had to do the work that needed to be done so I could start building a new life that I can say I am truly happy with. Developing the right mindset could very much be the most powerful tool at your disposal. It will get you from where you are right now to where you want (or hope) to be in your life.
