How are you? How are you REALLY doing? Let's face it, the pandemic is affecting all of us - to different degrees for sure, but all our lives have changed to some extent. And my gentle advice is this: be less judgemental and show yourself and others some compassion during this crisis.
If you follow my insta account, you will know that I am partial to 'words of wisdom quotes' (I am aware that some people think they are just meaningless platitudes but I happen to love them - mostly). But there is one that really winds me up. And that is anything along the lines of "never give up". Quite naturally, given how often I have quit things in my life, I guess. Read on to find out why I think it's bullshit - and not just because I personally may feel criticized for my choices ;-)
Anyone who knows me, knows I am a huge fan of self-development. I truly believe that we never stop learning. But I realize also that the love for self-development and personal growth might turn into the belief that something is wrong with us. In my article that is now available on Elephant Journal, I write about how my (subconscious) belief that I was broken affected me in various ways.
