Lots of you related to last week's blog when I talked about parenting or leadership styles. Thanks for all your comments. If you missed it, you can check it out HERE.
As I am now back home and was standing under the rain (goodbye sunny California), it made me think of a very old joke. I don't know if you've heard it. A guy enters a bar, order three beers, and drinks them all. He then orders two beers, and drinks them both as well. Then, he orders one beer, downs it, and says: "I don't understand. The less I drink, the drunker I get. What?" Of course, it's the accumulation of all the beers that he's drank before that got him drunk. The same thing goes for our mental health. Watch the following video or keep reading for more...
“No single drop is responsible for the whole flood.”
Sometimes, we think: "Well, I should be fine. I'm just going to bury my head in the sand and act like it's not a problem, because it's actually not a big deal." Well, if we don't take the time to heal all the small little things that happen to stress us out and we don't get rid of limiting beliefs, of negative self-talk, of anger, fear, hurt, sadness or guilt... Then all these little things are slowly eating away at our mental health.
Sometimes, we have this misconception that a small problem is less important than a big problem. Let's say that you come down with a big disease. Well, you'll take some time off. You'll make some changes. You'll take care of yourself. You'll stop everything. Or if you move into a new home, or go through a divorce. These are big things in life that we go through, and they warrant some serious changes on your end, but somehow, you don't take time to deal with the smaller problems you may have. It may be as small as telling yourself: "Oh, I'm not good enough for this." Or seeing somebody do something and thinking: "Oh my gosh, I wish I was like that, but I'm not like that at all. I'm not as good."
These little tiny things or tiny thoughts are the ones that are eating away at our mental health. They are the little single drops that are building a flood. I recommend you pay attention to your thoughts and pay attention to all the little things in your life that are just bothering you, because all these little stressors are building anxiety. Be aware that your mental health is important and be aware that it's okay to ask for help.
If you don't heal your old wounds, you will never scar and the wounds will stay fresh and open. Address them and make sure that you are constantly paying attention to the little things that happen to you. It's okay to ask for help, too!
Just like it's okay to go to the dentist. Food gets stuck. It's normal, and sometimes, you get cavities. Have you ever judged a friend for going to the dentist? No, right?! Everybody goes to the dentist. Well, I'm like a dentist for your brain. That's what I do with my clients. I help people get rid of all the little things that may be holding them back with specific processes at the unconscious level.
Let's have a virtual coffee sometime! I would love to have a chat and see if there's something I can help you with. In the meantime, pay attention to your thoughts and start transforming your thoughts into supportive inner language that will be healing you and will be more positive and won't be eating away at you every day.
Stay away from the flood by taking care of every single drop!
