We are six months into COVID and to say this has been a challenging time would be an understatement. These are hard times; many of us are hitting decision fatigue, frustration, and self-judgement.
If you’re like me, this one simple sentence keeps coming up and causing a lot of pain and frustration, “I thought I was past this.” We get hit with a hard time and all of a sudden, we revert back to being 5, 16, 25, and back to acting how we did then.
You aren’t alone in experiencing this. Friends, we are always a work in progress. We are always evolving and triggers will continue to bring up old stories and behaviors. It’s how you respond to these inevitable challenges that matter most.
Just because you are struggling, it does not mean you’ve failed. Or that you’re a fraud. Or that you haven’t done your work and that you should be past this by now. This is your falling down moment and it is an opportunity.
Listen in today to hear how I handle my falling down moments, which there have been a ton of during the last six months. I’m sharing what it means about you when old behaviors creep back up and why you may have fallen out of alignment. There are better thoughts to think than “I thought I was past this.” And believing them starts with having some compassion for yourself.
