Stress can build on you and you may feel like the whole world is against you, but that doesn’t mean you should give up.
When you are faced with difficult problems and mental, physical, or emotional health problems, you must do your best to support yourself and allow those around you to support you as well.
Being hard on yourself is not going to make things better, it will only make you feel worse. If these times, don’t give up. You must be able to count on yourself above all.
Read this 5 advice if you are going through a situation like this.
1. Don’t judge yourself:
You should be your own biggest fan. The more you judge yourself, the more it will make you suffer.
You don’t have to keep attacking the things you do, especially if you do them for a reason. Don’t compare yourself to others either, that in itself is quite toxic.
2. Stop setting yourself up to fail:
Stop taking as much, if you are overwhelmed, take a step back. Sometimes it is important for your own well-being to just say no to others. Trust me, I know better than most how difficult it can be!
I am one of the most passive people in the world and I don’t like to say no. Go beyond this need and do it for yourself! The more you add to your to-do list, the more overwhelmed you will become.
3. Accept yourself like you accept others:
Don’t close yourself off from the world around you. Accept who you truly are as a person, as you would for anyone you meet.
Why treat yourself like shit if you don’t treat someone else like shit? You are amazing as you are and you don’t have to change yourself for anyone.
4. Don’t ignore your feelings:
Be aware of your own feelings and emotions. If you do feel something, don’t bottle it or push it away. Why? Because it only makes the problem worse.
Embrace what you feel so you can overcome it. Ignoring it will create more problems than you could have imagined.
5. Set boundaries:
Don’t be afraid to set appropriate boundaries between yourself and others. This life is yours to live and you must be the one who lives it. Limits can be reassuring and soothing in many ways that most people don’t realize.
I know firsthand that many of these things are easier said than done; however, in the long run, you will thank yourself if you commit to them.
The better you take care of yourself, the better you will feel. Stop selling yourself short, you can and will get through everything in life. It may sound difficult right now, but in the end, everything will start to work as it should.
Don’t let the people around you step on you and keep these things in mind. Even when you feel like you’re falling apart, stick to your guns. You have great things on your way and you might miss them if you are not able to look close enough.
