Right now you may feel bogged down and overwhelmed because nobody is listening to you. It's frustrating. It can make you scream at the top of your lungs: why is nobody listening to me?
So, here's a crazy thought.
Maybe you're talking to the wrong person.
And what do I mean by that?
Sometimes our needs, our desires, our wants, our frustrations are actually a part of us saying: hey you know what? I don't like the way things are going.
When we feel that signal, we want to put it...
We can get bogged down with this feeling of you know what, if I'm not ranting and raving and I am on this defensive mode to just get my point across, nobody's gonna listen to me. Nobody's gonna take me seriously unless I am loud and forceful.
And then I realize that nobody is even listening to me when I am forceful. They're just ignoring me.
But you have this point you want to make. You have this big something that you want to share with the world, or with your kids, or with...
You may have a challenge going in your life, and you have no clue how to solve it. It can seem like there's no way that things are ever gonna change.
What if it was OK to allow things to have a bit of space to unfold?
That can feel ridiculous, right? You may be thinking: Seriously? You're telling me to slow down. Just let things unfold. It'll all fall into place.
Yet, have your tried it?
You can start out simple with this technique. Just listen to your frustrations....
Sometimes things don't feel like they're going right, like nothing is going right, and you want control.
You want to regain a sense of control because you feel like nothing's going right, nothing's going your way. If only this, if only that, I could just feel like things were working out for me.
Well, here's a bit of little tough love. Why can't you let things just be as they are? What if you let go of that sense of control, you can actually see what's going right in your life.
The feeling of emptiness, feeling unfulfilled at work can really bring us down, especially when you're in a position that you just can't quit your job.
What do people say to us?
Well, look on the bright side, at least you have a job. At least you have money coming in. Some people don't even have that opportunity.
Sometimes that may help to snap you out of that funk that you're in. Sometimes you're just unhappy and nothing seems like it would help...
Sometimes we feel like our life just doesn't go in the way we want it to. And things could be better.
We could be traveling more. We could be doing more with our kids, having more free time, less worrying about what's gonna be for dinner.
We just want it to better. We wanna be somewhere else.
I want you to think about this: Is your life really as bad as you think?
Now there may be times in our life where, yes. It is really that bad. There is a lot going on. There's a...
You can get caught up in moments when you're on overdrive. You need to get this and that done. There are so many things racing through your mind.
Then, someone points it out to you.
If you're like me, it seems really annoying when you're stressed out and rushing around, and someone asks, "you okay? Is everything all right with you?"
When you're caught up in it all, it can feel so condescending. You may snip back: "Can't you see I have all these things...
Often times, most people focus on sharing their results. They don't talk about the steps that got them there. Most people aren't hiding their challenges. What happens instead is that we get tunnel vision. We have blinders on and we only see one way.
That's when the stress, challenge and struggle happens because you don't see any way out. You begin comparing yourself to others: "Oh, they got it figured out and I don't." This black-and-white, all-or-nothing thinking leads you...
Sometimes we just need a break from all that craziness in our day. Yet, we don't know when or how we are going to get it.
We want some way to just get rid of that draining feeling and constant mind chatter: Agh! How did I get here? And when is this going to end? I just want a break.
Sometimes we don't even feel like taking a deep breath because we're just so caught up in it all. We're so constricted. Instead, put your hand on your heart. And say to yourself: I...
Today, we're going to talk about when big events make it hard to focus on your day-to-day tasks. So what do I mean by big events? I mean something that's outside of your normal day-to-day life. It could be news of a friend who has a very sick parent or maybe even a death in the family, that's not your own family, but it's still very emotional for you. Or it could be just seeing the worldly events going on today. That can cause those who are empaths or highly sensitive to take in...
