Anxiety and Blame
When you’re feeling low and anxious you don’t recognise yourself, you become someone you never expected to be, and you have no idea how to cope with the stranger that’s invaded your mind and taken over your emotions.
You can be quite tough on yourself, thinking that you just need to get a grip, and other people can certainly suggest that they feel the same. It’s rubbish.
We All Need Help
As a mentor who helps people put their everyday lives right, and balance home, career, family, friends, and self-care, I can tell you that I’ve been through the mill too.
I used to look at the people I turned to for help and inspiration, see them standing up in front of an audience looking comfortable and being inspirational, and think “I can never imagine how I could be like that!” Now I am.
Focus is Everything
Have you ever noticed how often stress is mentioned in the media, on billboards, on social media, and so on? Have you noticed how many people are dedicated to curing our stress now? Have you ever thought about the effect this focus is having?
We All Know This!
I’m not telling you something you don’t already know, but I am asking if you’ve really thought about the effect of stress on you and others.
Life is a learning journey, and I’ve learned that sometimes replying to someone is just repeating what you believe in, then they repeat what they believe in, and repeat!
