How some life choices bring on your own suffering
You can be around people that mistreat you, call you names, and are just downright nasty, and you could still be responsible for your own suffering because of how they show up in your life. It's vital you know the role you play and if you have a choice other than the one you're making in certain situations otherwise you could find yourself in a whirlwind of hurt that might be completely avoidable.
Feeling more secure with your insecurities
We bring our insecurities with us everywhere we go. To work, to appointments, to our relationship, and everywhere else that might bring a sense of fear into our lives. It's important to address what you are insecure about so it doesn't become a challenge that you have to repeat over and over again. It's not required that you overcome your insecurities, but it sure makes life easier.
Learning to control your own reactions and overreactions
Some people might say you overreact and sometimes you agree with them but can't figure out how to stop doing it. If you find yourself reacting as if you were in fight or flight, it's time to get a grip on your emotional triggers and change the patterns that create those reactions in the first place.
The path to empowerment is full of risk and reward
Empowerment means having choices and some level of control of the results you get in your life. Disempowerment, as you know, is quite the opposite. In my book, The Overwhelmed Brain: Personal Growth for Critical Thinkers, I take you along the from disempowered to empowered. In this episode, I summarize the path so that you can a good start.
Arguing as a tool for healing
Are arguments ever productive? You may not like to do it (I know I don't) but if done right, you can release a lot of negative energy and you might even get to some core issues that need to be addressed.
Addressing the core issues is so much healthier than carrying around negativity that drip feeds into the relationship in destructive ways.
Don't let fear of confrontation make you silent
What if you could tell someone something that was bothering you but present it in a way that didn't seem confrontational? If you have a fear of confrontation, perhaps this is the episode you need to make a shift that takes you out of the fear and into empowerment.
