EMOTIONAL ATTACKS!!! You cannot control other people's emotions, but you can control your own ••• Hurtful confrontations often leave us feeling drained and confused. When someone attacks us emotionally, we may wonder what we did to rouse their anger, and we take their actions personally. We may ask ourselves what we could have done to compel them to behave or speak that way toward us. It's important to remember that there are no real targets in an emotional attack and that it is usually a way for the attacker to redirect their uncomfortable feelings away from themselves. When people are overcome by strong emotions, like hurt or anguish, they may see themselves as victims and lash out at others as a means of protection or to make themselves feel better. You may be able to shield yourself from an emotional attack by not taking the behavior personally. First, however, itis good to cultivate a state of detachment that can provide you with some protection from the person who is attacking you. This will allow you to feel compassion for this person and remember that their behavior isn't as much about you as it is about their need to vent their emotions. If you have difficulty remaining unaffected by someone's behavior, take a moment to breathe deeply and remind yourself that you didn't do anything wrong, and you aren't responsible for people's feelings. If you can see that this person is indirectly expressing a need to you--whether they are reaching out for help or wanting to be heard--you may be able to diffuse the attack by getting them to talk about what is really bothering them. You cannot control other people's emotions, but you can control your own. If you sense yourself responding to their negativity, try not to let yourself. Keep your heart open to them, and they may let go of their defensiveness and yield to your compassion and openness.

To hurt is no fun at all... but sometimes we go through certain situations in life and face many obstacles and challenges. We have ups and downs, one thing to always keep in mind... no matter what pain or challenge we face, all this is part of life, this is life's greatest lessons through all the pain. #staystrong #stayblessed #everydarkcloudhasasilverlining #wearehereforyou #reachout #life #lifelessons #truthaboutlife #mentalhealthawareness 🌈💚

“Be a star in someone’s dark sky.” —Biggby’s Coffee mug Great reminder. This is something I aim for everyday. I love when I’m able to share a resource with someone or just be a listening ear. This kind of interaction has increased 100 fold since I’ve started coaching- both in person and online. I used to only interact with friends online, never meetings new people. In the same way, I’d pass people on the street with my head down. Now i walk through the world head up, looking for opportunities to interact with others. In fact, research has found that “people are our greatest source of happiness, so there’s a huge potential gain to be realized by pushing beyond our comfort zones and taking that social risk.” ( I have absolutely found this to be true. If i hadn’t pushed past my comfort zone, i would not have friends like @mommatamingo and @hilareelynn.healthylife and so many others. Coaching was that push i needed to take the risk, then seeing the reward, I’ve made it a habit. My challenge to you is to strike up a conversation with a stranger- on the bus, at the grocery store, on a plane. Let me know how it goes! We all have something to offer others and others all have something to offer us. #spreadhappiness #talktostrangers

Is today YOUR Monday? What do you have to lose?

Looks are so deceiving, dont you think? What stories do you make when you see someone, what do you guess about who they are, what they have and where they come from? Do you guess their age, their wealth, their experience, their happiness, based on what you see? Did your mumma ever tell you, not to judge a book by it's cover? Instead judge it by it's heart. By the pages that line the inside and whisper it's truth. Teaching children (and ourselves) to look beyond what they see and to question their assumptions is vital to the development of empathy, compassion and humanity. It is also essential to breaking down the barriers of isolation created by painful journeys and others assumptions💞

This is so important. Reaching out can be so difficult and even if you manage to do so, it's not likely to be a loud cry for help. It may be subtle and therefore overlooked. So you may not get the support you were hoping for because people didn't understand your way of reaching out... and when you're in a depressed state, it's hard to keep things in perspective and not take it personally. You already feel like you're a burden to everyone you know (and even to those you don't). So after you've been ignored a few times, you stop reaching out. You see it as confirmation that you are not wanted and not worthy of anyone's time, because that is also what depression does, it distorts your thinking and makes you have those kinds of thoughts constantly. . . . #depression #depressionawareness #fightingdepression #depressionsucks #reachout #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalillness #mentalhealthsupport #selfcare
