Everyone feels less than their best sometimes. That’s part of life – and it’s nothing to be ashamed of.
There is nothing wrong with feeling low no matter how much we feel we “should” be happy all the time. Constantly feeling happy all the way through life might be an ideal goal – but one yet to be accomplished by anyone I’ve ever met. Even the most confident people; heroes or those you look up to, have their “off” moments – and that’s ok. In fact it’s more than ok.
Feeling low isn’t a part of life that’s “gone wrong” – it’s the time we evolve. Like a full-on workout at the gym, it’s the greatest tension that produces the greatest results later on. However, just as the full-on workout can be turned into a good experience – these moments of evolution don’t have to be so painful.
When you feel low, now isn’t the time to overthink, try to “believe in yourself” or in any way “try” too hard at all – although you may feel compelled to do these things. When your mind is in a storm it is not your friend – so you want to step back from the mind and relax while the storm passes.
This section is filled with articles, blogs and audios designed for when you’re in the middle of a “storm of thoughts”. You may be feeling lonely, depressed, empty or sad. Take a look around this section and you’ll find something that works for you to shift your mood into something better and help you feel ok.
When you are in your self-confidence, if you don’t get the job it’s their loss. You accept the adventure and you feel all the more powerful because of it. When you are disconnected from your self-confidence, it’s a different story. You feel like a loser. You feel not good enough. You feel pessimistic. They become the […]
When you go into worrisome or fearful thinking, things can get very bleak and the world seems to change: visuals may come into you mind of all the bad things that might happen. Your breath might become shallower and your body feel tense. Your mind races and the storm of thoughts begins. This is simply what […]
Addictions are on the increase. And that makes sense, because depression, anxiety, loneliness and other chronic emotional states are on the increase too. And addictions are simply an attempt to find relief from these uncomfortable feelings. Growing up, I felt emotions strongly and, not having learnt a healthy approach to dealing with them – I […]
Body image can seriously affect people’s lives. Especially nowadays, in a media that puts the emphasis on outer looks and how to change them or make them better. But there’s a problem with this emphasis. This approach to fix or change outer looks doesn’t work very well. Once someone fixes one thing, there’s something else […]
Meeting someone new? A new relationship ought to be exciting – after all it’s what you wanted, right? But now you find yourself almost feeling worse than before you met the person. What’s going on? When you find something or someone you want – your mind wants to “try really hard to make it work” – […]
A good adventure story has it all – twists, turns, drama, excitement and triumph. One thing’s for sure – it’s not dull. And neither are these times we are living in. Climbing Everest is an adventure – but if you are unprepared, I’m guessing it would be a nightmare. Same with these times. It’s the […]
The “Lighthouse” type of person I spoke about in my last article, are often leaders, natural counsellors and professional advisors to others. Understandably so, as they have a warm and caring, trustworthy nature and deep wisdom that belies their years. In a relationship, the partner of a “lighthouse” can sometimes feel like they are being […]
I have met a lot of successful, beautiful, kind, loving, honest, highly eligible people who were being treated badly in a relationship- often by a partner who isn’t living up to any of these qualities. It made no sense to me- why would the seemingly “less eligible” partner do this, when you’d think they’d be […]
You may think the reason you feel bad is that you don’t like your body. Or it could be a bad relationship or grief from a relationship breakup. Or that you don’t like your job and don’t know what your life purpose is. But it’s none of these reasons. You may have tried everything to […]
When you are in the middle of a bad mood, feeling lonely or depressed, the world and everything in it can look bleak and cold. It can feel like this mood will never end. Bad moods can seem permanent- but they never are I remember in my teenage years and early twenties, when I was […]
