Do you ever have those days when you feel like you are regressing? When despite all that you KNOW you have overcome you just don’t think that you are making any progress? Well I invite you to STOP IT!
Stop thinking about it. Stop judging and assessing how you are doing. Stop looking to how your thoughts and feelings for answers. And check in with something much more accurate – reality.
The people in our lives have a much more objective opinion of our progress. They are with us through the ups and downs and they know what is going on in your life and what you have accomplished, but they don’t have that little voice that is inside of your head skewing their view of your progress. I invite you to stop trying to figure it out and check in with them.
Ask them if you have been covering ground and making progress? Ask them if they have seen a change in who you are being from day to day? Ask them specifics about something you are concerned about – do I seem like I have gained some facility around decision making?
I guarantee you will be surprised by how generous, loving and really accurate their responses are. Do this exercise and then share in the comments below what your friends and family said:)
