Nollywood Actor Adedimeji Explains How Mind Works
He said “Have you ever wondered why you shed tears each time you watch a touching movie? I mean, doesn’t it baffle you that even though you know you are watching a stage play, you still react helplessly to it like a kid?
Or aren’t there times when you watch a horror movie, and it suddenly triggers feelings of fear and anxiety? Some people even start hating certain characters, calling them wicked.
My dear, here’s the reason you are not your mind. You only have a mind. And while you know that the movie isn’t real.
The guy inside (Your mind) cannot differentiate between reality and fiction. Hence, whatever your senses feed it, it instantly acts on it.* That’s why when you are called “stupid,” you get upset even when you know you aren’t.
Your unconscious mind cannot tell whether it’s true or not. So, that’s why you respond with feelings of anger, fear, anxiety or sadness.
Knowledge, they say is power. So, henceforth, be mindful of the things you subject your mind to, If the news doesn’t make you feel good, stop listening to it.
Adedimeji further advised his followers to desist from things or people that bring them unpleasant memories stressing that their sanity should be of utmost priority.
If there’s anyone who brings you bad memories and you can’t control it, feel free to avoid them. And be unapologetic about it because it’s your sanity we are talking here.
Desist from watching things that will cause you to panic and flee from naysayers because their words will only cripple you.
Guard your heart with all due diligence because out of it comes the issues of life.”
