We all tend to get stuck, if there is something in our lives we don’t like, we often settle and just try to make the most of it because changes are scary, and they’re also a lot of work. If you commit to making the changes that you need to make, you probably won’t regret making those changes. Using mindfulness is another important tool to help you focus on your own mind instead of just being stuck on auto pilot all the time.
- Most of us will seek change in our external circumstances first if we are not happy with our lives. This works well to a degree, but at some point, we hit a wall and realize we must look within.
- Being everything for everyone might make us feel productive and valued, but it’s also draining. And it’s unsustainable. This is a recipe for burnout and feeling powerless and neglected.
- When things get hard—and they will—remember that no one is perfect, and everyone struggles in one way or another.
“Eventually, running from, neglecting, and betraying myself was no longer an option. I had to choose myself, show up—I had to find my way back home.”
