Are you repeating “I’m a mess!” in your head?
I hear it from people all the time: “I’m a mess!”, “No one knows it, but I don’t know what I’m doing.”, “I’m just faking it!” So many of us are walking around in our daily lives feeling this way. It’s as if we have a tape playing over and over in our minds of these negative mantras. We keep our focus on feeling overwhelmed and are blind to everything else. And I get it. I understand why you feel that way. But I would suggest looking at it a different way…
You are functioning in everyday life
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.
