The unpredictable twist and turns of life can leave you feeling overwhelmed, anxious and isolated, possibly wondering how to cope. In this social media age of scrolling, filtering and posting pictures of us,"Living our best life" on Instagram, Snapchat or Facebook, validating ourselves by the amount of likes we receive and comparing our lives to everyone else who seem to have the best jobs, relationships and life in general.
Life can become a revolving door of living a persona you have created where you can feel isolated and detached from the outside world, unsure of how people will respond to your true feelings. The constant comparison to people who seem to have it all only aids the need to keep this persona alive, drawing further away from real and true authentic human connection.
In this day and age technology allows us to be connected to so many people but also feel disconnected at the same time. Anxiety, depression, isolation and low self-worth are common place with a feeling of no one to turn to or who will understand.
Our environment, culture and society have helped us master the skill of making choices for our lives without the time, space or consideration of the impact on our well-being. Everything is so fast paced with a fear that we will be left behind, with the feeling that there is no time to explore who we are, how we feel and where we want to be. Exhausted, you wish time would just stop so you can breathe!
And you can breathe!
If you have been feeling overwhelmed and yearning to explore and understand more about what this life has to offer, we can explore this together!
