Do you allow yourself to be supported?
Do you allow yourself to be supported by yourself or by others?
It’s been a tricky year with COVID and I think people’s mental health hasn’t perhaps been as good as it was before. Sometimes I hear people say “there is no one around to talk to anymore”.
Things happen around us and we start to get some negative chatter in our head. We feel that we need support but, here’s the thing, could we take care of ourselves?
How about supporting ourselves first?
When I’ve asked for help from others sometimes they are busy, or sometimes they just give advice and it doesn’t necessarily help. So, I think the important thing is to care of yourself and be ok with being on your own, be ok with just being yourself.
Watch this week’s video and then complete the tasks below
- Take a look at your strengths
- What are your strengths?
- Make a list of your strengths.
- Look at the people in your life
- Are they the right people?
- Do they listen to you or not?
- Are they enabling you or just thinking about themselves?
- Recognise any patterns of internal chatter that’s going on in your head
- Write your negative chatter thoughts down
- Then be aware that you are actually worth a lot more than you think.
These actions will allow you to support yourself and what usually happens is that other people then turn up to help you as well. When you think about it, what you put out there is what you get back- It’s called Perception is Projection in NLP. So, if you’ve got doubts and negative emotions then you get doubt and negative emotions back. Alternatively if you’re ok with yourself people will be around for you.
If you are struggling with any of this, if you don’t think you are worthy or you’ve got a lot of negative chatter that stops you supporting yourself, or you think that you are just a victim with others being responsible for your emotions, then get in touch this can all be sorted out in just a few hours. Then you can truly live the life you want.
I hope you do that – look after yourself and support yourself in the best way that you can.
Until next week
Dr Bridget- helping you to lead a life where you support yourself.
P.S I’m booking people into my next Certified NLP Practitioner course in July/August.
