Last night in class, we got paired up to do one-on-one role playing with a certain type of therapy technique. I didn’t think anything of it, really. The professor simply said, “Pick a small problem to discuss.”
My small problem? I’m feeling kind of overwhelmed.
My partner took my small problem and ran with it. He asked me questions that I didn’t necessarily want to answer, and my brain was spinning. On the drive home, I rode in silence, trying to process the conversation and my own personal thoughts.
I figured that if I’m feeling overwhelmed, there’s a good chance I have a few readers out there who are feeling the same way.
If you feel like you don’t have the answers, or you don’t exactly know what path you’re on and where it’s going to lead you, you’re not alone.
If the phrase “I should (or shouldn’t)” is guiding the majority of your life decisions, it might be time to take a critical step back and reevaluate where those pressures are coming from.
The feeling of juggling 10 equally important responsibilities can get a little tiring, but just know that you can do it.
This moment in time might not be your ideal situation, but just know that it is getting to where you want to be. Life is a journey – learn how to enjoy it.
Don’t be opposed to cutting yourself some slack. It’s wonderful if you hold yourself to a high standard, but perfection does not exist.
Try your hardest not to wish time away, because when you look back on right now, you’ll be sorry you didn’t savor all the good things that were mixed in with the chaos.
