D is for deleterious which means harmful to body or mind.
Now the usual way of writing this word would be to tag this word with alcohol, drugs, abuses etc.
Another way of seeing this is to extract those factors that are harmful to our mind and body.
No.1 on that list is Over thinking!
Oh my god, don’t get me started on this topic. I have been there too. Over thinking is just good 10% of the time. Rest 90% is always harmful one way or the other.
When you’re sad, heartbroken, things don’t go your way, you over think, try to see what could have been done better, what could have been a better ending etc. That happens to everyone. Can’t escape it, but can reduce it to the most. Over thinking brings nothing but continuous pain.
Even if we are happy or things are going normal, there are certain people who like over thinking here too. Why are things so normal? Is this the silence before the storm? Is he/she not interested on me? My life is so dull etc.
I stopped doing all this because it is a waste of time, it hurts my heart and definitely affects my thinking for the rest of the day. Why must I do things which hurt me the most?
Thus I have begun to not over think and suggest too few of my near ones that they do the same. It’s healthy!
For the second word I’ve chosen;
D is for dégringolade which means rapid decline or decay; downfall.
This is like a part of the above word. Sometimes things don’t go our way. Crying and sulking will get us nowhere. Nor will over thinking.
The decay will continue and the downfall will torture you a lot. The only way you can deal with it is to find “ME” time. Wear a smile on your face and finish one task at a time. It always helps. Like they say, “Never Back Down”
