Everybody has that one friend that is super dramatic, if you were ever 25 minutes late for a meeting with me you are not late YOU ARE DEAD!! LoL I always think the worst, I assume the worst and most times I think everyone is out to get me. That friend is me, lol
It has a lot to do with my anxiety, its had its positive effects and it’s had its negative effects, because I always think the worst and think everything will fail I always have a plan B and plan for the worst. I never expect anything from anyone or any situation and I end up getting more than I bargained for when things work out. The point I’m trying to make is the reason why a lot of us don’t do certain things, or never move forward in life is because we over think and over analyze situations to the point where we underestimate ourselves and our potential, I’m guilty of it too.
Most situations should not be left lingering on our minds for days, even weeks, heck years after. Maybe you had a bad day that’s fine lets start over tomorrow. If you need to get professional help to better deal with a situation I strongly suggest doing it, do whatever you can to let go of self destructive behaviors. The world is against ME I’ll yell, I’m dying I’ll moan when all I have is seasonal allergies.
We make millions of decisions everyday in this journey called life knowing what to focus our energies on is a task within itself we really can’t afford to waste time. I read an article once about “Satisficers and Maximizers” Satisficers are people who know what they want and when they find it they are happy with it and move on to something else in life. For example if they need a tomato sauce with basil in it, once they find it they are done looking for it. Maximizers are persons who have to review all their options even after they have found what they want, because really they don’t know what they want. They will look at every can of tomato sauce making sure they are getting the best price, with the least calorie intake etc, etc. Needless to say Satisficers are happier than Maximizers, which category do you fall under?
Lets both promise that we will let go the heavy burden of worry that we walk around with, promise that we will no longer stress over the things we cannot change and the people we cannot change. Lets just focus on getting through today, so we can make it through this week.
Have a great week everyone.
