DISCLAIMER: This blog post is a result of the questions that arose for myself and my life after having watched an amazing interview (which I’ve linked at the end of the post).
Do you ever get the feeling that you’re failing at life?
Knowing the food you consume isn’t really good for you, but you do it anyway, because well, it’s too desirable not to?
Knowing that sitting by the computer or tv or any other device for longer periods than you’re on your two feet is really bad for you but you do it anyway because well, what else are you supposed to do?
Knowing that you really need more sleep and in appropriate times but that you’re always willing to compromise on it first hand?
wondering how you got to where you are now when all you want is to be elsewhere?
Dreaming of all the things you want yet not lifting a finger to achieve them?
Moping around in your home not knowing which way to go, walking aimlessly only to return back to the couch or bed or whatever cushioned surface you have available in your house?
When did we become like this, I ask?
I see my life flash in front of my eyes and I’m not even dying.
What have I done? What have I accomplished? Where am I going? Am I going anywhere?
Why, but WHY, do I put myself through this hot mess when I know I could fix it?
Why are we so conditioned to behave like robots, just resting on waves, floating, not fighting?
Even though we are in constant fight or flight mode, we do neither, we only live through the constant distress. WHY?
How did our cultural and societal expectations of life become so passive and unsatisfying, not to mention, down-right deadly?
But the most important question is, how can we reverse all of this damage?
How can we change the course of our lives and realise that we have control, that we can change, that we can actually, really, really, really, in all honesty, CHANGE OUR LIVES?
Our bodies are mechanisms, living beings that we treat poorly every single day and then we blame and punish them for acting out, for showing symptoms of poor treatment. And we stuff our bodies with more bull-crap because we’re conditioned to believe they are the solution.
Truth is, it’s not until we rise up to the challenge, take responsibility, stop the self-pity and START DOING that we will be healed.
This entire blog post is a result of having watched a truly life-altering interview of a Holistic Psychiatrist Kelly Brogan.
I’ll add the interview here so you’ll get a chance to challenge yourself as well.
It starts now.
Are you ready?
Until next time lovely, let’s believe in ourselves, trust ourselves, give ourselves love and care, and trust ourselves, deep down we know what’s best for us.
With much love and many hugs,
