Do you find that you feel lazy and never want to do anything new?
For example if your friends ask you to go out, do you say no because you can’t be bothered to get ready, travel there and make conversation even though you know you will have fun? Or do you delay doing something such as a piece of work or tidying up?
Why Do You Lie?
You may not even know why you lie , yet you still do. You like to make things sound unbelievable, make you sound richer, happier and essentially better than you are.
How often do you feel shy in your daily life?
How often do you feel shy? Do you feel shy all the time or just with new people? Do you find yourself in a social situation with people you have never met before and you feel so shy that you don’t even want to say a word?
Thoughts go through your head such as ‘I don’t want to make a fool of myself’ or ‘They are not interested in what I have to say’. Then the moment passes and you feel like a failure. You wish you could have said what you wanted to say and act confidently like everyone else does.
A lot of the time people identify themselves by certain items or interests, but is that who you are now?
You can enjoy something, but is that your sole identity?
There is so much more to you that others may not see that you may not even be aware of.
Mental space is there to help assist your life. It’s an important space to have, to be alone with general thoughts and feelings. Increasingly however, this space is filled with other things such as computer games, looking at social media or reading a book. It is OK to relax, however by filling every moment with distractions, there is no time to reflect.
How do you feel about yourself? I hear on a daily basis people wanting to be taller, slimmer, better looking, more intelligent or more money and confidence. There is always something seemingly wrong and the focus is never on what people can do well.
Your unconscious is made up of thoughts and feelings established throughout your life. This helps you to negotiate the world and dictate how you think, feel and act day to day.
Master Your Critical Inner Voice
The critical inner voice is that voice in the back of your head always doubting your ability to achieve, and stopping you from trying new things.
The function of this voice has always been to protect you from danger or getting hurt. That’s why when a speeding car comes past, you don’t cross the road until it has passed you.
Was this another stag Valentine’s Day for you this year?
You may not even care, life goes on you and have more important things to worry about, but a small part of you might wish that you had someone to share the day with. You see others enjoying each others company and might think ‘why don’t I have this?’ and ‘why do I even care?’
How often do you feel anxious or scared about attending a social situation?
You can go out and meet your friends, parents or people you know but when you have to go somewhere new or talk to people you don’t know you feel terrified.
Then instead of attending, you stay at home and become bored and lonely.
