Guard Against What You Hear

I’ve had hurtful, mean things said to me and even thought negative things about myself without anyone saying them to me, so if I hear bad things and think about them enough I may start to believe them in my heart and act them out in my life as if they were true?

4:20 My son, give attention to my words; let your ear be turned to my sayings.
Proverbs 4:20 BBE

You’re saying then, I should be careful what I hear and listen to and what I look at with my eyes because they form thoughts that can get into my heart and affect my life?

4:23 Keep your heart with all vigilance; for from it flow the springs of life.
Proverbs 4:23 RSV
