“I’m a mess!” – What to do if you feel out of control – FB LIVE


Are you repeating “I’m a mess!” in your head?

I understand why you feel that way. But I would suggest looking at it a different way…

You are functioning in everyday life in spite of how you feel

This takes so much effort! Even while you are telling yourself: “I’m a mess!”, you are going about your daily life being kind to others, showing up to work, buying groceries, caring for your family etc. So if you’re going to notice how you feel overwhelmed all the time, then how about noticing how well you cope? How about giving yourself some kudos for getting through life? This shift in perception will dramatically change how you feel about yourself.
