This is from a great article in Forbes Magazine that captures the ideas of a Clinical Social Worker, Amy Morin. My spin is that we are losing these values. We are not helping people embody these habits. Instead we are fostering entitlement-based resentment and people pleasing co-dependency.
These are conservative values.
According to Morin, Mentally strong people do NOT:
Waste time feeling sorry for themselves. Give away their power. Shy away from change. Waste energy on things they can't control. Worry about pleasing others. Fear taking calculated risks. Dwell on the past. Make the same mistakes over and over. Resent other people's success. Give up after failure. Fear alone time. Feel the world owes them anything. Expect immediate results.
