Free Chat Notes April 22

Going through struggles with people you are living with is very, very common
Remember that people who are in your environment who may be trying to control everything are doing so to soothe their own anxiety, try to shift to a feeling compassion towards them
When we let go of trying to control of things, we come back to the present moment
It is so illusory to think we are in control of things, we can take actions to minimize risk, but control is basically not within the realm of possibilities
Being in the moment also includes planning, what we do want to avoid is the future oriented fear about things that my or may not happen
ASk yourself, Is the thing I’m about to do a response to an emotion or Is it something that is aligned with my ultimate goal? Ask yourself when you are unsure of what action to take
Self care is also choosing who you are going to interact with
Self care is not just about relaxing or escapes, it’s about building a life you don’t want to escape from, its doing the daily things we have to do and taking care of first things first
Refuse to judge yourself
Focus on the things you can control and the things you have to be grateful for
