This is for those times when you feel confused, unclear, indecisive, stuck... and it revs up your anxiety.
Let's talk about what to do when you don’t know what to do, what next step to take, what direction to go, what to choose.
Those feelings do suck. They feel unshakeable, and they’re so compelling. One thought after the next that convinces you that you should freak the fuck out...
It’s a battle that you feel like you can’t win. And if you're like me, you then also may think you might screw up the beautiful unfolding of your life by not knowing what to do...
We are captivated by solving problems.
We are all taught to fix problems.
But are you in the energy of the problem or the energy of the solution?
You can only be in one, not both. Are you influencing the problem or the solution? How do you know?
You feel like this:
I shouldn’t be feeling this way.
I don’t know why I’m feeling this way because my life is good/isn’t bad.
There’s something wrong with me.
I can’t seem to feel happy.
I’m just going through the motions.
I have times I don’t feel like doing ANYTHING.
I feel so heavy.
And then you:
Go to your doctor and try antidepressants.
Hide how you’re feeling to the people you know.
Try to suppress how you’re feeling until you feel like you’ll explode.
Numb how you’re feeling with various things (TV, video games, alcohol, etc.).
Feel more and more hopeless, frustrated, confused.
Does this sound like you?
Can we talk about the missing element here?
I'm captivated by the concept of being our most "authentic" self. What does it mean? How do you "be" who you are? Shouldn't it come naturally to you?
No, not really. Not at all, actually...
Maybe that was true in the very beginning when you first got here.
... you know, before you felt the influence of others, the judgment, the rejection...
