Living The Life ‘You Should’ Sucks!

Are you racing around people pleasing, attending events you don’t want to, doing a job you don’t really like & being in a relationship thats draining you dry.

And juggling multiple roles, relationships and responsibilities, whilst feeling unhappy, overwhelmed and completely frustrated along the way?
Its bloody exhausting!

Firstly, if that is you, please acknowledge yourself. Recognise that feeling overwhelmed is a natural response to the demands and pressures you face. It’s perfectly okay to experience these emotions, so remove any judgment you have towards them.

Secondly you can begin to explore the root causes of your overwhelm.

Often, it stems from a misalignment between your true self and the life you’re currently living.

Society bombards us with unrealistic expectations, leading us to strive for perfection and feeling inadequate when we fall short.

And the best kept secret out there…… drum roll please …………
is you are already enough, just as you are.

Embrace your imperfections and release the need for external validation.
Connect with your inner self, your true essence, and allow it to guide your choices and actions.
To embrace your authenticity is to break free from your chains of overwhelm.
And to transform stress into empowerment, it’s crucial to prioritise self-care practices that nourish your mind, body, and spirit.
Carve out some time for activities that replenish your energy and bring you joy.
Engage in mindful practices like meditation, journaling, or spending time in nature.
Nurture your body with nourishing foods and regular exercise. Remember, self-care is an act of self-love that strengthens your foundation.
Frustration often arises when you feel stuck or stagnant in your life, unable to pursue your true desires and passions. It’s a sign that your authentic self is being suppressed.
So reignite that spark within you!
Explore your passions, follow your curiosities, and make time for activities that bring you a sense of fulfilment.
Give yourself permission to dream big and pursue goals that align with your values and aspirations.
Break free from the limitations you’ve imposed on yourself and step into your true potential.
And remember that this transformation won’t happen overnight. It’s a gradual process that requires patience, self-compassion, and perseverance.
Celebrate each small step you take towards living an empowered life. Surround yourself with a supportive community of like-minded individuals who uplift and inspire you.
Remember that your overwhelm, stress, and frustration do not define you.
Life happens for you and not to you…. don’t take things so seriously…. smile and the world will smile with you 😄
Over and out, peace and love 🕊 💕
