Even On Our Anxious Days, We Grow: A Perspective.

Those hard days are an ever learning and ever-adapting form of the ways that we choose to cope with. You may not have all the answers but that is what we one may say, as a learning phase. 



To want to get rid of feelings of uncertainty, those moments of anxiety that no one talks about. It grows bad enough for you may end up frustrated.  The desire to see yourself as happy as others, without the presence of triggers around, remains a desire. For it may feel that something just stole years of your life. 

Being stuck in ways and thoughts and constantly fighting for it, while others are passing by with marks of achievement is a terrifying feeling to exist in. These are your hard days where you battle between fight or flight modes of your nervous system. Either you avoid your feelings of abandonment, or exert your control, hard enough to attain it. But you don't need both. For there is still growing among those, without a language. 

There is no language for the choices you still get. No language when you seek to be mindful of your needs. There is no language when you take the steps to collect resources along the way. No language when you are selective about the people around you. No language when you slowly move toward those who you feel safe around. 

Growth is your awareness to redirect attention towards things that bring you joy in your language. There is growth when you listen to your instinct and seek the direction towards your pathway.

“I’m Being Too Sensitive”- 2 Tools to Eliminate Self-Gaslighting.

Even if I was wrong in that situation, is it fair to say that my feelings don’t deserve to be validated and attended to?   You almost self-gaslight yourself each time you minimize and suppress your thoughts and emotions regarding a particular situation. Statements that you keep repeating in your head may look like: “It’s not that bad” “Maybe am being too sensitive” “I don’t know what just happened, but let’s forget it.” “I’m too dramatic, gosh why can’t I behave different.” “What’s wrong with me” Anxiety, shame, doubt, depression and guilt are the expected emotions that you may experience. Two tools to break self-gaslighting and help you validate your very own emotions are: 1. Coping Statements that target self-validation. Brainstorm and keep a few statements handy for the next time you find yourself self-gaslighting your feelings. Practice these statements a few times so that when you really need them, they’ll be available to you without an extra mental

Can’t Stop Fixing people? – Overcome People Pleasing This Way.

  A behavioral pattern that drive you seek someone’s approval you had much needed. Your survival have been depended on fixing people. Knowing that brings you greater frustration, confusion and anger – here’s a small guide that may provoke how you think. What script are you often playing in your head? – Sit quietly and really identify. “If I fix/save this person’s problems, he/she will ___________.” “If I express my thoughts, they may __________.” “I feel accepted and loved when they _________.”   Your attempts will help you identify these two themes. 1) Either you are seeking validation/support from the person. (e.g. If only I manage to prove my potential to my parents/boss). 2) Or you are trying to control, manage, attend to or change - how someone thinks about you. (e.g. If only I save this person, he/she will desire a romantic relationship with me). Example:        Agreeing to things you don’t like        Doing things for people to earn their approval         Alwa

To the woman who's afraid to love herself.

"The worst loneliness is to not be comfortable with yourself." Accept yourself, love yourself, and keep moving forward.  To the woman who would go self defeating lenghts to make others like her. To the women who would agree with others opinions even if she disagrees.  To the woman who have held herself back. From being herself. To the one who feels indecisive because she needs someone to support her.  The one who stiff up before speaking. That you bite your tongue because you fear what others would think.  You avoid talking about your preferences. You work overtime just to feel desired by a group of people.   It's time to change. Even when you feel afraid. Even when you don't know how. It's time to show up for yourself.  If you want to fly, you have to give up what weighs you down. Look into their eyes and tell people what you want to say. Speak up at work meetings. Tell your lover about your true desires. Go tell your new date that this is not your fa
