The WORST place to be is isolated and alone in your own mind.
Our minds are SO good at scanning for danger. They are brilliant at catastrophizing situations.
That causes us to shrink and withdraw.
Don’t do it!
Find someone to help you bring the thing you’re swirling with into the light of day.
Shining a light on our fears, phobias, and swirling thoughts gives them less power and gives US more power.
I used to be an isolator. A runner. It didn’t feel safe to speak my deepest, darkest thoughts. I truly thought I was alone in life.
With the help of true friends, a couple of good therapists, some really excellent coaches, and a few good men (including my hubby), I learned I didn’t have to suffer through life alone, holding on by my bitten-to-nothing fingernails, just surviving.
I’m not alone.
Neither are you.
We’re all in this human existence of joy, sorrow, and madness together. It’s that amazing??? 🙂
We’re meant to be in relationship with one another. It’s how we learn, grow, and thrive.
Truly – don’t believe your thoughts. They think everything could be a giant saber-toothed tiger out to kill you.
Nah…most of the time it’s not nearly that serious.
Getting help to discern the difference is the key.
PS: I still have TWO seats available for the upcoming Bewildered? BeWILDER! Backpacking + Wayfinding Adventure April 7 – 9th. Ready to grab one of the remaining spots?
