There is not a single human being who is saved from dark thoughts. This happens whenever we are idle, and it is almost inevitable.

Not all the thoughts that plague us when we are inactive are harmful. However, many times the most predominant ones are quite bad.

I am sure that many times thoughts of the type: “I am not capable”, “I am useless” or “how ugly I am” bombard you. This would not be so serious if they were sporadic, but some become so obsessive that you end up believing the story.

This is perhaps the source of actions that lead many adolescents to harm themselves. They reach such a point that their character weakens, leaving them so insecure that any criticism from the outside hurts them.

It's like when you don't eat well; your defenses go down and you are at the expense of external viruses that make you sick. Also, keep in mind that recovery will always depend on you.

Consequences of dark thoughts

They will always be psychological. They can range from the least insidious to those that lead the person to attempt against their life. Here I will present only a few as an example and without an order of importance.


Although bulimia nervosa can be due to genetics, it can also be the result of learned behavior. It is common that it arises due to low self-esteem.

In other cases, it arises in a way of self-punishment. There are even those who, having no control over their lives, unconsciously control the only thing they have power over their body.

The main characteristic of bulimia is that the person binge eats; that is, it eats large amounts of food. After experiencing guilt over this, they make themselves vomit or resort to laxatives to control weight loss.

Psychologically we will always find harmful thoughts regarding their body image in people who suffer from it. They may be below their ideal weight; however, her mind influenced by toxic comments led her to see herself as “fatter than she should be”.

In general, the most frequent “victims” of this disease are adolescents and women; Despite this, anyone could suffer if her character is very impressionable and her self-esteem is impaired.

body dysmorphic disorder

The same thing happens with bulimia. It is due to problems of self-love and acceptance of who you are.

The person who suffers from it constantly focuses on their physical image and sees defects throughout their body. Usually, it is fixed on minimal aspects for other people, but for the affected person it is not. This "fixation" on these supposed defects is obsessive.

This can get to the point where the person feels embarrassed and anxious to the point that they will avoid relating.


Like bulimia, anorexia is an eating disorder; however, the difference is that the person does not eat, losing weight in an exaggerated way. There are even those who die because of this.

Again, this illness is a very negative way of dealing with emotional problems and low self-esteem.


Talking about anxiety is somewhat complicated because it is not reduced to a single evil; There are several types of anxiety that exist.

Anxiety is characterized by generating feelings of fear and restlessness. Physically the body sweats, you feel restless and have palpitations. It may be that a stressful situation triggers it; with which it would not be something produced by what you think. However, the situation changes when the anxiety attacks arrive without any explanation.

Anxiety is a restless feeling that can make a person sweat, feel restless and tense, and have a racing heart. This can be a normal reaction to stress.

Anxiety attacks can be due to genetic factors, brain chemistry; even stressful situations, as well as feeling bad about yourself can trigger it.


Much is said about depression; some even judge a simple temporary sadness with depression, but this is neither simple nor superficial.

Let's start from the point that there are two types of depression: endogenous and exogenous.

Endogenous depression is due to causes of chemical imbalance in the brain. When depression is due to this factor, the person should seek psychiatric help because it can only be controlled with medication.

When talking about exogenous depression, the causes are external. Personal problems, stressful situations, the death of a loved one, and even what you think of yourself can trigger it.

Whatever the case, depression is a serious matter that needs to be addressed early. The reason is that it can lead the person who suffers it to death.

Low self-esteem

Being the basis of many psychological disorders, low self-esteem should not be considered as "the lesser of evils".

You can learn not to love yourself because of mistreatment in your childhood from your family or peers. This gradually leads the affected person to think negatively about himself. Now, depending on the power that he gives to these thoughts, he will be affected by some of the ailments mentioned above.

Coping with harmful thoughts

I will speak from my own experience. If it is within your capabilities, seek therapeutic help that allows you to find a reason to feel good about yourself.

Now, if you want to do it on your own, you need to start changing the way you see yourself and how you perceive the world.

How do you do this? The truth is that the first step is easy to do. Clear! by not feeling optimistic it will seem hypocritical, but it is a matter of "deceiving the body on purpose".

Every morning when you wake up, make sure that the first thought that goes through your mind is that of gratitude. You can accompany it with a smile; it may be that initially this is forced. Despite the above, with the passing of days, it will be easier and much more convincing for you.

Being grateful changes your life and the way you see the world in ways you can't imagine. It's such a simple action that you might think it's powerless, but don't underestimate the power of gratitude. The magic is that you change your negative thoughts for positive ones.

Another aspect that has helped me a lot is to speak nicely to me. Telling me that I am beautiful and that I deserve all the good that I have and that happens to me, changed my way of thinking and feeling. I've also noticed that people started to see me as attractive. The reality is that your inner light begins to project to the outside. You see how you feel.

You can fight your dark thoughts; It's just a matter of wanting to change and you can achieve it.
