Hello friends and happy Tuesday! I hope you all had a great holiday weekend!
I’ve been thinking about life challenges and want to share some of my therapist views …for free ❤️
I think life is hard at different times for all of us and we might often feel like a failure if things in our lives don’t go as we think they “should” or as we “expected”.
At times like these we feel a failure. BUT it’s super important to remember that feeling like a failure-is a feeling and it’s not a fact. Shoulds, expectations, and comparisons are not helpful in our lives, are actually detrimental, and cause us to second guess ourselves and our value as human beings.
One of my favorite TED talks is “How to Practice Emotional First Aid” by Guy Winch. It’s amazing and I’ve shared it with many clients. Look it up-live it.
When we feel like a failure, we normally stop what we’re doing. We give up; then that emotion wins! It’s just an emotion.
As long as we keep pushing toward future goals, we never fail.
If you feel like a failure, just remember I am rooting for you. We are all doing the best we can. You are not a failure.
