In my first Insta Live, I talked briefly about getting sick of your own bullshit and taking accountability for your depression.
I am sure that rubbed some people the wrong way, but whatever. That was my experience. I had to get to the point that I was just over it. And I truly believe that changed my life.
Because if you are comfortable where you are, why would you change?
If you're comfortable in your depression, in the moodiness, the tears, the intense mind states, the destructive behavior, the binge watching/eating/drinking/whatever, the victim mindset, the nothing-ever-works-out-for-me way of thinking, then you're not going to change.
And I say this with authority because that was my reality. If someone would have told me that I was making it worse, I wouldn't have been able to hear them at the time because I was just in the depression. It consumed me. It wasn't until after I started taking care of myself that I started to see how I was making it worse.
So, after my Insta live, I got a few emails and questions about people feeling like they are sick of their own bullshit and want to start making some changes in their life but don't really know how or where to start.
So, my next Insta Live we will talk about this in more detail. It's Sunday, November 18 @ 9pm EST. (It will be Monday for me in Sydney but that makes it cooler. I'll tell you what the future is like.)
Just so you have something to chew on between now and then, here are some simple questions to start looking at about yourself in complete honesty.
No judgement. No condemnation. Just full encompassing, unconditional love.
How much time a day do I spend scrolling on social media or watching TV/YouTube/etc?
What does my regular diet consist of?
How much water do I drink consistently?
How much booze/drugs/medicinal plants do I put in my system?
What do I do when I feel overwhelmed or when I have strong emotions?
What are a few ways I show myself self-care?
How often do I move my body?
How do I speak of myself to others or to myself?
If you still with these questions long enough, I believe you will start to identify areas in your life that need your attention.
The answers to everything you seek are inside you.
Even if you don't have depression, these are good indicators of overall health. They are a good way to just gauge your well-being and identify anything that may be causing harm.
Looking forward to diving into these concepts on my LIVE!
Sending you all the love in the world!
