Overwhelm

These uncertain times are bringing this up for a lot of people, including me…

That feeling of overwhelm that the challenges of 2020 can so kindly provide.

One week you can feel great, the next there’s a heaviness that slows us down, de-motivates us, or causes anxiety.It can be when we realise how different life is, thinking about money, family, or even your own internal pressure of wanting to achieve.

I STILL struggle with it.

Often I struggle with relaxing when I know I could be working.

I stress if I feel I‘m not hitting my a goals.

I occasionally let fear, uncertainty, and doubt take over.

But in the end, I don’t allow the overwhelm to control my thoughts or decisions.

In a social media world, it’s easy to look at other people and think they’ve got it all figured out. But I’m here to remind you that’s NOT the case. What you’re seeing on someone else’s feed might not even be real.

Struggles still exist on some level for most of us. We feel when we hit the next milestone we’ll be free of it, but as we level up the struggle just changes. Anyone honest will tell you that.

So the next time you’re feeling that overwhelm, remember that you’re not alone. That it will pass. That you’ll find your feet.

Get support, reach out to a coach, find a technique that alters your state of mind, stop trying to do everything yourself for fear of asking for help, and keep moving forward.

You’ve got this.
