Do you believe in that saying "i cant"

Books write that you shouldnt say that to yourself. But what if you are in wheelchair and you have to always say to yourself yes i can do that, i can walk. This is stupid i hate that literature psichology. Same is with mental illness

There is lots I can no longer do, and in the near future will be even less I can do. A old neighbor was getting angry when I said there is nothing I can do, there is no plan B, I will be disable totally and will not be able to work and the stereo types still think at my age I should be coming up with a plan to be active. I Can’t

Yes sure…

I’ve accepted that there are things I can no longer do.

Yes I can’t . I am in very bad health, and I regret to say that I can’t do anything.

I think people are sometimes afraid of anything negative. As if admitting one or two negatives will infect everything else until everything is negative. It’s ok to know the truth and live in reality.
That doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t try things as many times as your will allows. You don’t know until you try is a better saying, I think.

My brain feels like a bowl of oatmeal from looking at other peoples sides of things. It can be taken too far.

First of all, i really don’t like those empowering inspirational quotes. They are simplified and discomforting.
Second, its okay if you “can’t”. I just rather say I can’t now…but I’ll make my best to make it when I’m able to".

“Do you believe in that saying “i cant””

saying “I can’t,” with a British accent, is rude.

It’s easy for me to say that I can’t slam dunk a basketball behind my head. No amount of practice is going to change that. Most of us have our limitations. I’m not going to be a talk show host either, but I can be happy and content, if I set my mind to it.

I know i have limitations but i guess its my delusions of grandeur that keep me from ever saying “i cant”. I feel like i could walk on water if i focused and tried hard enough. There are many thing i say I won’t do anymore because it doesnt help my recovery or state of mind, but i wont bring myself to ever say “i cant”. Maybe too much pride, too much bravado, or maybe me just struggling with delusions. I have journaled about my thoughts that i can control my own reality if focused and mindfull enough. But its that proper focus that seems to be hard part. I meditate on these subjects daily to hopefully elevate my level of consciousness and have more control and positive perceptions which ultimately i believe can change my reality. If i can control how i percieve reality, then subjectively i can control reality itself with proper perception. Or im just nuts!! Its the subject of a book ive been writing for the past year. My mad ramblings and hair brained theories that help me deal with life. Trying to wrap my head around reality itself has been a struggle since my serious psychotic breaks I struggled with for consecutive years and am just really finding closure lately about it all.

I believe in I won’t. I won’t give in to temptation desires and sin demonic influence and deception through religion culture and media entertainment and socialising with low life people. I believe in defeating many.
