I do not need to explain why emotional overwhelm has been at an all-time high lately. The news is terrifying, yet I can’t seem to keep my eyes off of it. I’m worried about every person that I care about, yet I can’t do anything to protect them. I planned to write about overwhelm even before the coronavirus outbreak, but I’m honestly glad that I waited because it’s more relevant now than ever. We’ve all been there. There are a couple of ways to deal with overwhelm: make it worse, or you can make it easier. (more…)
The reason people don’t change is pretty simple. We don’t want to do hard things, we say we want to change, but we don’t want to be uncomfortable. Why would you choose to be uncomfortable when you can just stay the same?
We might work so hard on something until we finally make some progress that we’re happy with and then we become complacent. We don’t want to be uncomfortable anymore. How do we find a middle ground between being uncomfortable and being happy at where we are now? Wouldn’t it be so much nicer if you actually wanted to be uncomfortable? I mean, we can do that.

I know I’m not the only one who has ever asked myself this. This has been kind of sitting in the back of my mind for a while and I felt like now was a good time to bring attention to it.

It’s almost like I can’t breathe, and I mean obviously it’s not that I truly can’t because my breathing is just fine, but I can feel something on my chest so it’s just seems harder, you know? It’s nothing like the suffocating feeling I’ve gotten before that I talked about here, but I’m hoping by the end of this you’ll know what I’m talking about. (more…)
Blogger burnout, work burnout, school burnout, people burnout, whatever it is we’ve all been there. It’s when you’re exhausted, uninspired and maybe considering quitting. If you’re reading this hoping I have a secret that will guarantee that you’ll always be inspired and never feel burnt out again, I don’t, but if there is one feel free to let me in on it. In the meantime I’m just here to write about what I know and what works for me in hopes that you can apply it to something in your life too.
Definition: Creating unnecessary problems for oneself, or intentionally causing destruction of ones own goals.
Most of my life I have always put myself last. Making sure other people were taken care of and happy and have everything they needed or wanted before maybe taking care of myself.
I have so much to say I don’t even know where to start. Finally.
