I remember a few days ago, I met an old leader who I hadn’t seen in nearly ten years. The old leader said that I was the same as before, nothing changed. As soon as the words came out, I immediately changed to say that I was younger and more energetic than before!


I know what he said was not deliberately flattering, and I myself feel that I am in a better state than before. Because, at that time, on the one hand, I was inexhaustible in my work, and I was more difficult than a cow, but it was still not good; unlike other colleagues, I had nothing every day, and I got all the benefits, just thinking about my mentality. unbalanced.


Later, my husband fell ill, and then passed away. At that time, I even had the heart to die, how could I still be in a good mood? Later, I slowly adjusted my mentality, fled from the leadership position, went to the business department to handle cases, and gradually adjusted myself.


The next step is to retire. After retirement, abandon everything in the past, whether it is achievements or regrets, stand aside, and did not choose to re-employ, but choose a different life, return to my hometown, accompany my parents to do farm work, shoot videos, read books, Wandering in the countryside, away from the hustle and bustle, away from the intricate interpersonal relationships, the mentality has gradually improved.


Now that you go out during work hours, someone asks, are you not going to work today? I told them to retire. Many people don’t believe it and ask me to retire at such a young age?

There is a question on Zhihu: “What is the best way to maintain health for contemporary people?” One of the answers is impressive: “The highest state of health preservation is to nourish the mind.”

For this matter, it has actually happened, there is no way to change it, and it is beyond your control. There is also no way to control your parents, husband, weather, etc. are beyond control, only our beliefs and thoughts can be controlled.


Therefore, in our life, if we want to change our mentality, we must constantly remind ourselves of what can be controlled and what cannot be controlled.


We have to change our minds about what we cannot control. We can think that it is indeed a last resort for friends to change their plans, and if they encounter something special, they may also change their plans. If you still want to go out and play according to the original plan, tell yourself that it is not bad to go alone.


Or go home, read a book, learn a skill, listen to a song, follow a TV show, or even watch a talk show, etc. In short, express your emotions.


At the same time, we will have a sense of achievement in the process of reading, watching TV, and studying, and have a pleasant psychological experience, and the blood will be smooth.
