How to avoid making the same mistakes over and over again
If you make bad decisions or keep getting results you don't want, it's time to tackle that problem once and for all. If you aren't making decisions based on what's most important to you at the deepest level, you may drive off the cliff one too many times.
Choosing between the empowered response and the dysfunctional one
Some people are just difficult to be around. They display toxic or hurtful behaviors and they never seem to want to change even when they know you're bothered.
You have a choice in how you respond to others. And the choice you make will have an effect on what behavior you get in the future. That's an important choice! And it's also a great topic to talk about today.
The past, present, and future of unpleasant memories
Negative events from the past get encoded into our brain so that when we recall them, we can usually remember about when they happened. Because of that, we can actually use time to our advantage to help feel better about those memories, and maybe even get rid of the residual emotional triggers altogether.
Disarming people that disempower you
There are mental tools you should have in your toolbelt when dealing with snarky or hurtful people. Their goal might be to make you feel bad or guilty, so you may need to find a way to disarm them so that when they try to hurt you with their words, they become confused when you don't react the way you used to.
This episode will provide some tools to make communication with toxic people a bit easier while also keeping your power.
When loved ones reject your reality and replace it with their own
Your mental health is too important to let those in denial ignore your suffering and invalidate your experience. The solution to someone's ignorance could be to put the harsh truth in their face. Or it could be to just accept that some people will always be blissfully unaware or in full denial. Acceptance that you can't get through to everyone might be the one reality you can rely on.
Feeling crazy because you don't have the answers
There are a lot of unknowns in life. Some unknowns have answers, some don't. Some do, but the person who knows the answers won't share them with you. How do you deal with the limbo state you might get in when you want the answers but can't get them, and may never get them?
You can't walk around in frustration, confusion, and limbo all the time. There has to be a doorway out of those states and it's time to find that door and walk through it.
