What resentments or regrets are you holding on to?
Sometimes years can go by while you keep a firm grasp of what causes you stress simply because you can’t let go of the idea that you could have made different choices in life.
Or, could you have made different choices or taken a different direction in your life? If so, why didn’t you? Sounds like an important topic to discuss.
In segment two, I talk about a healthy way to communicate with others – a method that fosters positive relationships and productive communication.
There’s a big picture to keep in mind if you want to get along with almost everyone and it has to do with letting something important go:
Your attachment to being right.
In segment three, I read a message from someone who is as low as it seems one can go. Depression, anxiety, stress, and years of family dysfunction are all part of a bigger picture of overall unhappiness. And the only thing she has to hold on to is a relationship that is “perfect” but she believes is doomed to fail if she can’t figure herself out and get well.
She’s so focused on what she has to lose that she might actually create what she fears. She is in the breakdown stage when nothing seems to be going right.
The good news? There’s nothing below breakdown so maybe it’s time for a breakthrough. I talk about the steps to take to get you to a better place after you hit the bottom of the barrel and feel like it couldn’t possibly get any worse.
