5 Things To Give Up
Words of Wisdom shared by Siobhán Murray, author and psychotherapist
Doubting yourself – Did you know you are probably your biggest critic? If you’re best friend told you their dreams and vision for the future, would you knock them back and tell them you doubted they could achieve them? Or would you support them and tell them to ‘go for it’? Stop doubting yourself, whatever it is, give it a shot!
Negative Thinking – Our thoughts can influence how we feel and behave. When you start thinking negatively about situations and events check in with yourself – are your thoughts based on fact or opinion? If they are fact then work through how you can change how you feel, if they are opinion based on no facts whatsoever then look at how you can reframe how you think.
Fear of Failure – ‘Bliss lies on the other side of Fear’, Will Smith. Most of the time we attach a feeling of fear to something we haven’t yet experienced. Fear of failure, fear of judgement, fear of the unknown. Don’t worry about what others think! Everyone will always have an opinion of you, let them! Be Brave.
Destructive Relationships – So often we feel compelled to stay in friendships and personal relationships out of a sense of duty even when they are destructive for us. Be around people who lift you up not drag you down. Being involved in destructive relationships stops you from having time for positive friendships?
Putting Others First – When you are on a plane part of the safety announcement goes something like this ‘in the event of an emergency an oxygen mask will drop down, please attend to your own mask first before attending others’. If you don’t look after yourself first you won’t have physical and emotional energy to deal with others. ???? ??
