Maybe you have someone in your life who is a negative-Nancy and you're starting to feel that way too. Or maybe you are the negative-Nancy.
Or you've lost your job. Or had a huge life-changing event happen.
Either way. Whatever situation you are in, I want to tell you, it's normal to feel blah, to feel sad, to feel negative. Sometimes.
If this is you every single day, that's not a good thing.
And you might want to reach out to others for help if you can't snap out of it.
How to stay position when you feel like you can't
1. Stop comparing yourself, your work, your life
I truly believe comparison is the thief of joy.
When you compare yourself to someone else you are robbing yourself of happiness! Don't do that to yourself.
Comparison creates pain whether you want it to or not.
I've found that practicing gratitude for everything and everyone in my life is a great way to combat the comparison trap. I either write what I'm grateful for or I pray and thank God.
2. Talk to someone you trust and get a reality check
My trusted person is my husband. He knows me. He can tell when I want to vent and when I really need advice. And he's not afraid to tell me the truth. He'll tell me when I'm being too sensitive, when he thinks I need to get over something and most importantly, he'll tell me when I'm wrong.
I'm not going to lie. It's hard to hear the truths he speaks sometimes. But, I know he is telling me what I need to hear, not what I want to hear.
It's important to get a reality check from someone who is going to tell you how it is. Not someone who is going to agree with everything you say.
Because we're human. We make mistakes and we need people to call us out on it sometimes. Otherwise, how will we ever grow?
