This Is How To Rewire Your Brain For Happiness

Someone compliments you and you think, “They don’t mean it.” Something good happens and you hear, “I don’t deserve this.” You’re meeting new people and it’s, “They won’t like me.” And you usually accept those words because they’re coming from inside your head.
